We celebrate Klopp’s 1st Liverpool Anniversary
It was only 1 year ago that Liverpool appointed Jurgen Klopp as manager. He’s only been here a year, but he’s certainly made an impact. In fact in Klopp’s very 1st message he wanted us to become believers.
He took over a team that were struggling to score goals and excite their own fans. He’s now turned them into one of the most attacking and exciting sides to watch in the league. If not Europe!!!
Great start to his 1st full season
Liverpool are now 2nd favourites for the title. Impressive wins over Arsenal, Chelsea and reigning champions Leicester City have made a growing army of pundits champion their credentials.
Klopp wanted to create a unit. Not a group of individuals with a common goal. But where the collective unit is greater than the combined individual components.
It’s so impressive to watch – the determination to close down and hunt as a group. Get get the ball and start a new fresh attack.
Favourite Klopp moment
There have been so many great Klopp moments.
To be honest there are quite a few. Including orchestrating the cheers around Anfield after some important cheers. His ability to get the fans on the teams side is so natural and so important as the club moves onwards.
But my favourite moment has to be the celebration with the after Lallana’s goal against Norwich. The pure raw emotion is priceless.
Amazing celebrations with the team. There were also the successful games in Europe last season, especially against Borussia Dortmund and Villarreal.
My favourite game
My favourite game last season has to be the return leg of the quarter final against Borussia Dortmund.
At Anfield Dortmund took an early 2-0. Making it 3-1 on aggregate.
Divock Origi, Marco Reus made it 3-1, 4-2 on aggregate. This meant in 30 minutes Liverpool had to score 3 goals with no reply from Dortmund.
Coutinho made it 3-2 with 25 minutes remaining. Sakho headed in from a corner with 13 minutes left. Then Lovren scored an injury-time winner to take Liverpool to the Semi-final to meet Villarreal.
The rest is history!
When Klopp was asked about his favourite moment he said, ” Yeah, Dortmund, the last half an hour – it was not too bad.”
What do you think? What’s been your favourite Klopp moment?
