Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he is optimistic about his team’s chances this season following their 4-0 thrashing of Arsenal last weekend.
The Reds went on to complete a comprehensive thrashing of the Gunners through goals from Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Daniel Sturridge which also consigned Arsenal to their second straight League defeat.
After under-achieving for many years, many fans of Liverpool believe that Klopp is the right man who can help lead the club to its former glory days. The club have failed to win the League in the modern era and they will also be hoping that that can end under the stewardship of the German.
Whilst talking about his team, Klopp insisted that he is positive about the future, saying, “I’m really optimistic about the future… [but] we know we have to be ready now.
“But yes, like I’ve said a few times, we want to build a squad and actually keep the squad and work together. A few things were that good because most of the players have worked together already for a year.
“That doesn’t mean it always works, but I saw these situations – passing here, passing there, the crosses from the half-space [from] Hendo, Emre [arriving at the] second post area in the box, things like this.
“That’s football, but if you have to tell a player ‘look, if we have the ball there, cross it, and if you see him with the ball there, run’, that’s what we did 500 times.”
