Jurgen Klopp opens up and tells Liverpool fans Premier League title ‘is for the people’
Jurgen Klopp has admitted that winning the Premier League title this season ‘would be for the people’ and not him.
Klopp has been at Liverpool for three years now and has finally built a side that is capable of challenging for the Premier league and Champions League titles, with the Reds favourites with Manchester City to take both titles.
But Klopp has now admitted that he does not care if people remember him as the man who brought the Premier League title back to the club after 29-years and just wants to win the title for the Liverpool faithful, who dream of becoming Champions of England once again.
“I don’t need that,” Klopp said on the Sky Sports website.
“You can’t imagine how less interested I am in that. I’ve never thought about that.”
“My job is to do everything I can to help the team be as successful as possible. I’m not searching for being remembered in 50 years or whatever.
“For me it is no pressure, it is only opportunity. I love what I do, I think I have a fantastic team. That’s all I need to be a happy person. I respect a lot the desire, the people and players. I can be a part of that dream but it’s not for me, it’s for the people.
“God will judge me one day and that’s the only thing I’m interested in. What other people say about me I couldn’t be less interested in.”
Can Liverpool pick up the Premier League title?
Its been a long time for Liverpool fans since they last saw the side win the Premier League title and all they have to do this season is get past a Manchester City side that has dominated over the past few seasons.
But they have the manager and player that can do it this season and many would love to see the Reds lift the famous trophy once more.
