Jurgen Klopp enters his 8th season in charge of Liverpool FC this campaign as he looks to recapture former glory.
He has overseen Liverpool’s return to the summit of European football and is a bona fide Liverpool legend.
There were speculative reports linking Jurgen Klopp to the German head coach position – with Julian Nagglesman now the frontrunner for the position.
Speaking to German outlet RTL as quoted by Sport Witness, Klopp spoke in light of recent developments:
“We’re building Liverpool 2.0 here, we want to attack again and not just look at how much longer can we go on,” Klopp said.
“I have a loyalty to Liverpool. My heart is here in Liverpool.”
“You can’t just cut out the eight years,” he said. “I signed a contract here and, as far as I can remember, I wasn’t drugged or tied up and had to sign with my mouth!”
Klopp’s signed a deal keeping him at the club until 2026 last summer, and his strongly worded statement means we can look forward seeing the German in the dugout for a while longer.
It was a resolute message from the boss that illustrated his desire to stay at Anfield not just for the foreseeable future, but potentially for ‘another generation’ Liverpool team to etch their names in the history books.
