Klopp wants to ‘attack again’ – ‘My heart is here at Liverpool’

Jurgen Klopp has reiterated his commitment to Liverpool, with words that will ring like music to fans’ ears.

In an interview with German television channel RTL, Klopp gave a clear answer to questions about possibly taking over as coach of the German national team.

“We are building Liverpool 2.0 here, we want to attack again and not just see how long we can continue,” Klopp said via Sport Witness.

“I am loyal to Liverpool. My heart is here in Liverpool.

The manager arrived at Liverpool eight years ago next month and signed a new contract in April 2022 which will tie him to the club until the summer of 2026, giving him 11 years at Anfield. This will be by far the longest tenure of his managerial career.

“You can’t leave out the eight years,” he said. “I signed a contract here and as far as I remember I wasn’t drugged or tied up and I had to sign with my mouth! »

After last season’s disappointment, Klopp looks particularly energized and invigorated after a summer of upheaval within his new team.

Incredibly, only nine players remain from the 23 players who reached the Champions League final in 2019. Klopp told his team it was the first year, not the eighth.

The coach appears determined to make ‘Liverpool 2.0’ a success – and if he succeeds, it would be the first time he has rebuilt his own team for success, having left Mainz and Dortmund after seven years each.

On the new German national team coach, Klopp said Julian Nagelsmann – who is expected to take the job – would be a great fit:

“I think Julian is a great fit because he’s a great coach. I would be very happy – if it happens like that.

But it’s his words about working at Liverpool and how happy he is on Merseyside that will please Reds fans.

Could we even imagine Klopp extending his stay beyond 2026?
He is already the longest-serving Liverpool manager since Bill Shankly.

He is also the fourth longest-serving manager in Premier League history.
