Former Manchester United player Gary Neville reportedly told Jurgen Klopp to focus on winning the domestic glory and forgo his desire to win a European title.
In response to Neville’s suggestion, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp reaffirmed his readiness to fight for every trophy during the course of the season.
He further disclosed that his players are more than capable to give full concentration to every match they play irrespective of the trophy they are vying for.
Though the former Borussia Dortmund manager has a very good sportsmanship spirit by making such a claim, the truth is that his team lack the tenancy to succeed in more than two competitions.
Last season, the Reds managed to reach the Champions League final match at the expense of a good outing in the League.
They struggled to end up in the fourth position by the end of the 2017-18 season.
It is safe to say that Klopp sacrificed his chance of winning last season’s Premier League glory to focus on European competition. At the end of the competition, Klopp and his men could only end up with a consolation price – silver medals.
Once bitten, twice shy, Klopp ought to have learnt his lessons – he didn’t have enough firepower to lay claim for three glories in a single season.
Though he can boast of huge talent and many world-class players under his belt, most of them easily get tire during games.
After a brilliant start to this year’s Champions League competition, Liverpool couldn’t maintain their pace as they take their feet off the pedal. They are now third in the group with one game left.
Despite being in the third position, the Merseyside club could still make it through to the next round of the competition — they only need to defeat Napoli at Anfield stadium.
Why Klopp must crash out of Champions League
It is obvious the Reds are not doing pretty well in the European scene, so, why is Klopp still interested in qualifying to next round of the competition when it’s vivid he’s going nowhere with this current form.
With the Reds wonderful run of a result in domestic League, it is obvious they stand a better chance of breaking their 13-year-old trophy drought.
They are unbeaten in the League and they are closely behind City in the race for the glory.
Realistically, Klopp’s men can beat the sky-blue part of Manchester to Premier trophy. This is because former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola isn’t desperate to retain the ultimate prize this term.
According to the Spaniard, Premier League’s glory is never a priority to him and his players, instead, they’re going for the UEFA Champions glory.
The former Bayern Munich manager has his eyes fixed on the European glory, hence, there’s a perfect opportunity for Klopp to end his trophy drought.
Crashing out of European competitions will provide much resting time for the players and that will help them feel refreshed and energized in their mission to win trophies
