Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said that he’d never celebrate a trophy win like Manchester City forward Jack Grealish did this week.
Speaking to BBC 5 Live Sport, Klopp shared how he felt when winning something with Liverpool.
“I really like this, you win and it’s an absolute high. It doesn’t stay for long, it still feels good, but it’s not like I have this feeling then the whole week,” said Jurgen.
Klopp then referenced what he’d seen from Grealish during City’s title celebrations.
“I’m obviously different then to Jack Grealish for example!” laughed the boss. “I just saw a few pictures Jack! Celebrate it, it’s fine you’re young! It’s all good, we’re are all different in these moments.”
Hopefully The Reds will be able to get stuck into some celebrations of their own on Saturday night.
All set for the parade
As confirmed last week, Liverpool will parade through the city on Sunday afternoon regardless of tomorrow’s result.
It’s the right decision after what has been a stunning campaign by Klopp and his team. Even if they don’t add the Champions League trophy to their collection, they’ll still have two hard-earned cups to show off.
But without question the mood would be lifted tenfold if The Reds return from Paris with Ol’ Big Ears.
Without it, their may be a sense of what could have been amongst the fans and in particular, amongst the players.
It will be difficult to celebrate too heartily having just missed out on the biggest trophy in club football.
Hopefully, that isn’t something we’ll have to contemplate. Last time around, in 2019, the parade that followed Liverpool’s win over Tottenham Hotspur was absolutely remarkable.
These are the kind of moments that tie players to the club and make them understand the sheer enormity of the support.
With one or two key men still perhaps undecided about their futures, maybe it could help them decide to commit to the club in the long-term.
Before all that though, there’s a final to be won. Liverpool head to Paris today in search of a seventh European Cup tomorrow. Go well Reds, and let’s put Jurgen’s claims to the test!
