Klopp aims to bring success back to Liverpool

Liverpool, Feb 12 (IANS) Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said he is “comfortable” in his new job and is confident that supporters and the powers-that-be in the club’s board room will give him time to establish a dynasty to match those created by his illustrious predecessors.

“There were great managers and great players working at Liverpool that have influenced the club’s history. We are trying to bring that success back to the club. Both the Manchester clubs and a few London clubs invest a lot. So if you make a few good decisions that doesn’t necessarily mean that you make steps ahead on the Premier League table because these clubs are making the right decisions too,” Klopp was quoted as saying by Sky Deutschland on Thursday.

“I’ve been here for four months now and I really get the impression that everybody in this club is hungry for success. And despite everybody longing for a very quick success they all are ready to be patient and to invest a certain amount of time that is necessary to gain that success,” he added.

Managing a club with a strong history is nothing new to Klopp. Although he led Borussia Dortmund to back-to-back Bundesliga titles and a Champions League final the German side already had a strong reputation in domestic football and had won Europe’s top club title in 1997.

Liverpool, despite not winning the league championship since 1991, enjoy a similar standing in English football – but the key difference, Klopp feels, is the way the club’s history is ingrained into the very fabric of the city.

“It’s a really great club that had much success in the past. Everywhere you go, all around town you’ll find special historic and football-related places,” he said.

“And there are the club legends. Every time you speak in public or go to an event you can be sure there are club legends present. The club is important for the city,” the former Borussia Dortmund coach said.

Klopp has met a number of club legends, and acknowledged that the “passion for the club doesn’t end with an expiring contract”.
