If Jurgen Klopp can finally win the EPL title for Liverpool, he will never have to ask for anything again at the club, according to Chris Kirkland.
It has been 30 years since Liverpool last won the league, and despite winning the UCL last season, everyone at the club still see the EPL title as the trophy needed the most at Anfield.
Speaking recently, ex-Red, Chris believes Klopp will be a hero if he finally achieves it for the club.
His words, “Amazing. I’ve always been a Liverpool fan and my first game was when I was seven years old standing in the Kop. As a Liverpool fan, it’s brilliant. It’s exciting times.
“I think Jurgen deserves a lot of credit. Three or four years ago, there was a bit of negativity around the club, but he’s brought the whole club back together.
“I go down to Melwood quite a bit and am lucky enough to watch the training. No matter who’s down there, whether it’s the person taking the bins out, someone cooking the food or washing the kit, he treats everyone exactly the same way.
“He’s got so much time for everybody and has brought that feel-good factor back. The fans know that – they adore him and they won the Champions League last year.
“If he can get us the league title for the first time in 30 years, he’ll never have to do anything again in Liverpool because he’ll be a hero. There’s a long way to go. Sunday (the win against Man City) was a huge game and nine points is a big gap.
“But it’s Man City you’re talking about – they pulled it back last year. But I’m hoping this is the year.”
On if they can win the league, “It’s been bubbling for a couple of years, we won the Champions League last year for the first time since 2005. It’s been bubbling since he [Klopp] came to the club and he’s transformed it completely.
“They have some world-class players. If we can keep the big players fit… I think in the next two months they play Saturday-Tuesday-Sunday-Wednesday every week after the international break until Christmas, so that’s going to be a challenging period for them to keep everyone fit.
“But if they do that, I’m definitely backing them to win it.”
