Jurgen Klopp’s arrival at Anfield was met with great optimism on Merseyside. Four years on he has turned a team he famously said no one likes into champions of Europe.
Klopp has been discussing how he has instilled a champions mindset into the Liverpool dressing room since day one.
Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, he said. “We have to feel the value they have, that they are in the right place and the right club.
“We tried to implement a mood inside Melwood and the dressing room that we can really go for something.”
Liverpool before Klopp used to step onto the pitch with a level of trepidation. Overwhelmed by the vast history of the club, the players often failed to deliver.
Klopp changed that mindset by drilling a positive mentality into the Liverpool players each and every day. This team now looks capable of achieving anything under his guidance.
The Anfield support that was, for a time, a source of fear has once again become the 12th man Liverpool call on in their times of need.
Klopp has created a team that offers world-class performances on the pitch but also has the mental toughness to quickly rebound from disappointments.
The job he has done at Liverpool is unrivalled in world football. Liverpool fans need to cherish his time on Merseyside as he is bringing the glory days back to Anfield.
