Liverpool To Think About Winning 4 Trophies – Jurgen Klopp



Liverpool To Think About Winning 4 Trophies – Jurgen Klopp

Jurgen Klopp says it is “crazy” to think about winning a quadruple, claiming Liverpool are “close to nothing” after their Carabao Cup win against Chelsea on Sunday.

Klopp’s side be@t Chelsea 11-10 on penalties in an enthralling Wembley final, winning his first domestic cup competition with the club.

Liverpool continue their push for another trophy on Wednesday as they take on Norwich in the FA Cup with the Reds also firmly in contention for the Premier League title and Champions League.

However, the German manager insists one trophy does not put Liverpool close to any large trophy haul, but did praise the mentality of his team as well as Carabao Cup opponents Chelsea.

In a pre-match press conference, Klopp said:

“Looking back at the game against Chelsea, the mentality of both teams was at an incredible level. The tempo of the game was incredible, the way both teams tried to close the other team down for 120 minutes… Then there is no doubt about mentality, not only for Chelsea but for us as well.

“Winning the shootout 11-10 as well shows you the concentration level of the whole game was insane, really… So it’s very good [the mentality] and very important. Will we have that for the rest of the season? I don’t know, but we will try.

“No team yet in the history of British football have won a quadruple because it’s really difficult. We won the Carabao Cup, we’re behind City in the Premier League. We play Norwich tomorrow night after playing 120 minutes on Sunday, then we play West Ham.

“It’s not even that we’re even close to thinking about crazy stuff like that [a quadruple], we just want to try to make sure the boys are fit enough to face Norwich in a proper way.

“To think that we have a chance to do so, you could see it as a compliment, but I don’t need these. We don’t see it like that because we don’t think ‘oh, we are close to winning the quadruple’. We are close to nothing in this moment, we are still in three competitions and that’s all like some other teams as well.

“It’s good that people think we can do good things rather than we are useless, but it’s not very helpful because we face a lot of very good football teams between now and the end of May.”
