The Liverpool coach doesn’t care to be remembered as the Reds manager in 50 years, he only wants to get the team a new title.
Liverpool is currently in second place of the English Premier League standings with 73 points, one behind leaders Manchester City.
The Reds managed to be leading the table for months, but have been recently overpassed by the Citizens.
This is why coach Jurgen Klopp believes is more important for the club to win a title, than for him to be remembered in 50 years.
“I don’t need that. You can’t imagine how less interested I am in that. I’ve never thought about that.”
“My job is to do everything I can to help the team be as successful as possible,” Klopp said in an interview with Sky Sports.
“I’m not searching for being remembered in 50 years or whatever.”
“For me, it is no pressure, it is the only opportunity. I love what I do, I think I have a fantastic team,” he continued.
“That’s all I need to be a happy person. I respect a lot the desire, the people and players. I can be a part of that dream but it’s not for me, it’s for the people.”
“God will judge me one day and that’s the only thing I’m interested in. What other people say about me I couldn’t be less interested in,” he concluded.
Liverpool is alive in two tournaments in the 2018-2019 season: the UEFA Champions League, where they will play against Portugal’s Porto in the Quarterfinals, and in the English Premier League.
