Jurgen Klopp adds more silverware to Liverpool’s trophy cabinet

SINCE the inception of the Premier League in 1992 only a handful of teams have reached heights that were so glorious that they have yet to be repeated.

The most famous two that come to mind are Arsenal’s 2004 Invincibles and Manchester United’s treble-winners in 1999.

However, with League Cup and FA Cup victories over Chelsea, Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side are on the cusp of a historic quadruple should they go on to also win their Champions League final against Real Madrid and snatch the Premier League from Manchester City.

That achievement will certainly commence a debate of where this current Liverpool team ranks amongst the Invincibles and United’s treble-winners.

When Klopp was asked if his team was ready to join the legendary list, he told the New Journal: “I don’t have to think about that, other people have to do that.

“I couldn’t care less to be honest, I enjoy the moment with these boys. I really enjoy it, we are so incredibly close with each other and our fans. There’s still a lot to come and a lot to play for but tonight I just want to enjoy this moment.

“We don’t have to decide where this team ranks and I know a few players of these teams, I cannot say how they played but I’m pretty sure in the time they played they were the best teams.”

Reflecting on how the game has advanced, Klopp added: “Now we know so much more about training and sports science, that’s why the boys now are so much fitter than the former generations were. It’s nothing to do with football or talent.

“Imagine if players from the past like Rushy (Ian Rush) or Kenny (Kenny Dalglish) would have been trained like the boys are trained today, that would have been crazy.”
