Jurgen Klopp has done a wonderful job since taking over at Liverpool in 2015. They have been the most dominant side in Europe recently. Liverpool won the Champions League last season, ending Real Madrid’s run of three straight titles.
Liverpool lost the Premier League to Manchester City last season. The defeat margin was just a mere 1 point. It must have been very heartbreaking for Klopp’s side. But no, they were extra motivated to win the title from the very beginning of this season.
Sadio Mane and his teammates were 25 points clear at the top of the Premier League table. It looked inevitable that Liverpool would win the title. They would have surely won the Premier League title by now but the Coronavirus pandemic has played the spoilsport.
Premier League is suspended right now. Liverpool came so close to lifting the title for the 1st time in 30 years but sadly their wait is still going on.
Liverpool winger Sadio Made was asked if he felt like a champion already. Mane replied to talkSPORT: “I think not yet. I love my job and I love football, I want to win on the pitch. I want to win the games and I want to get the trophy, it’s what I would love. But with this situation, whatever happens, I will understand.”
“It has been difficult for Liverpool, but it has been more difficult for many millions of people around the world. Some people have lost family members and that is the more complicated situation. But for myself, it’s my dream and I want to win it this year.”
“If that’s not the case, I will accept. It’s part of life. Hopefully we will win it next year.”
Jurgen Klopp has given all the players so much positivity and self-belief. Last season they lost the league by just 1 point and even after being ahead by 25 points this season if the season is declared ‘null and void’ they still have the confidence in their team to win it next season. That’s exactly the kind of competitive spirit the Premier League leaders need to display in this time of crisis.
UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said earlier this week that he sees “no way” in which Liverpool could be denied the Premier League title this season. So let’s hope that Mane and co can finally be proud of all their hard work by lifting the Premier League trophy.
