With the success of winning the European Champions League, European Super Cup and Club World Cup, it is feasible if Liverpool is called the best club in the world today. But, coach Jurgen Klopp actually rejected the title because the weakness of the Marseyside team is still apparent.
After a four-year development period, Jurgen’s klopp effort at Liverpool finally paid off. In 2019 yesterday, his direction Liverpool won three titles on the International stage.
The first was the European Champions League title which was won after defeating Tottenham Hotspur in the final round with a landslide score of 2-0. Next, Liverpool won the European Super Cup after the win over Chelsea.
And before closing the trip in 2019, Liverpool won the Club World Cup title after a narrow win over Flamengo in the final round. With a series of these achievements, let alone reflect on the performance of this season, it is natural that Liverpool is called as one of the world’s best clubs.
Yes, Liverpool this season looks amazing, especially in the Premier League. They won 25, and were held to a draw from 26 English Premier League matches. The title is getting closer, because of the 19-point advantage over nearest rivals, Manchester City.
But with this series of facts, Jurgen Klopp chose to be modest. He felt his team was not worthy of bearing the title of the world’s best club.
“We are, of course, more critical of our performance because they only see extraordinary results – no doubt – but we don’t see ourselves as the best in the world,” Klopp was quoted as saying by Goal International.
Furthermore, Jurgen Klopp exemplified the match against Atletico Madrid in the first leg of the last 16 of the European Champions League last week. In the match, Liverpool lost 0-1. Apart from the bus parking tactics adopted by the host, but Liverpool’s performance did look bad.
“What I like about my team at Atletico is that we don’t play like the best team in the world, we fight like crazy to get through it. Our attitude in this match was extraordinary” he added.
