Jurgen Klopp has refused to brand Liverpool as the best team in the world despite admitting that they have been exceptional.

Liverpool are en route to lifting the Premier League title and end the 30-year long league drought.

As good as it sounds, that may not even be their most significant achievement of this season.

With a game in hand, the Reds have managed to create a staggering 21-point lead over champions Manchester City. After 26 matches, they are also yet te be beaten in the league and on the longest unbeaten streak.

Jurgen Klopp‘s management helped Liverpool soar to new heights and re-establish them as a dominating force in Europe.

But Klopp, who won the Champions League with Liverpool last year, believes he has not yet done enough to help his side wear the crown of the world’s best team.

“Usually if people mention ‘the best team in the world,’ you think of Real Madrid from a few years ago, Barcelona from a few years ago, Man City of the last two years and stuff like this,” Klopp said as per Liverpool Echo.

“The team we have is about attitude. Go and go and go, mixed with really good football players. We are for sure more critical of our performances because they (people) only see the results, which are exceptional, no doubt about that.

“But we don’t see ourselves as the best in the world.”
