Jürgen Klopp on Liverpool’s Premier League Title Celebrations: We Had to Earn That

New, comments

You certainly earned it, Jürgen.

Liverpool won the league, but that was basically done ages ago.

Tonight was when they finally, finally, finally lifted the trophy.

It will go down as a bit of a strange day. A mad 5-3 win over Chelsea followed by a trophy lift without any fans that’s unlikely to be forgotten. Jürgen Klopp was, quite obviously, enjoying himself.

“It’s a great moment. It’s all about consistency. We had to earn that, it’s all about staying greedy”, Klopp told Sky Sports, as reported by BBC Sport.

“I can say in a pre-match meeting whatever I want - ‘you want to win you have to work hard, Chelsea are too good’. I’m surprised myself, how can you put in a shift like that when you’re thinking ‘I want to be fine afterwards’.

“I was angry during the game and it was my plan not to be angry. I had a fight with Frank Lampard and stuff like this. You don’t plan for this.

“We are champions - it’s the truth. We won four trophies, big ones. I couldn’t be more proud. Usually I don’t need pictures with something but I will have a picture with all four trophies, it doesn’t happen too often.”

Speaking directly to Liverpool supporters, the manager added that “If you don’t see that we do it for you I can’t help you. You made us happy, we all should celebrate at home. Prepare for a party and when this bulls**t virus has gone we will have a party.”

You can bet on that, Jürgen. We’ve all been there in spirit tonight. As soon as there’s a date, you can expect as many as humanly possible to be there in body as well.
