I am very excited about today and the future of the club in my heart, Liverpool FC. Jürgen Klopp is the new manager and today he is in charge for the first time away to Spurs. Not the easiest game he could start with, but to be honest I don´t care to much about the result today. Of course I really want him to get the best start and the club 3 points, but I know the club is in good hands and that he needs time to get things his way.
I have been so impressed by him since he joined. First the interview for LFCTV, that just gave me goosebumps all over. The way he spoke about football and what he wants was very impressive. Then the press conference the day after, in front of the whole world. He was so calm. He smiled, he laughed and he shows so much confidence in his own ability as coach that I wish he called me to be a part of it! I´m telling you, one day I will return to this great club, one way or another. Coach, ambassador, water carrier, Kit man or something. I will be there!
Klopp needs to bring the fighting spirit back. The team needs to run and fight. I am sure they have always tried to do that, but it has not worked out the right way. They need to make Anfield a fortress again. A place the opponents fear coming to. During my time there we did not necessary have the best team in the world player by player, but we had a team spirit. We were fighting, running and pressing the opponents. From the first to the last minute. We got The Kop and the rest of Anfield behind us and we kept pushing. We were fighting for each other. I know Anfield was a place the opponents did not like coming to because of the pressure we put on them. That needs to come back. There is no better place to be then at Anfield when The Kop is on fire and the team likewise.
Klopp will make this happen. His personality is all about fighting. He wants his team to go 100% from the start to finish. Run for 90 minutes plus. His players will grow and become even better. Liverpool have some great players, good leaders and young players coming up. It is all there to make Liverpool a title contender again. Maybe not this year, but as Klopp said: » Hopefully in the next years we have at least one title».
It all starts today. I am a big fan of the club, as you all know, and I am a big fan of Klopp. All LFC supporters: Let us get behind the team and Klopp, let us support them the best way we can and we will see the results we all want.
