What Klopp Actually Said

“I’ll take a year off and ask myself if I miss football,” he said in an interview with Sportbuzzer. “If I say no, then that will be the end of coach Jürgen Klopp.

“If one day I am no longer a coach, there is one thing I will not miss: the brutal tension immediately before the game.”

“The whole club is hot for the new season, we want to be even better,” he said.

“We want to chase the opponents and the ball over the entire field, continue to be a super unpleasant team that is not fun to play. We’re not defending any titles. We want to get new ones. We’ve only just started winning.”

Liverpool have added Greece left-back Kostas Tsimikas to their title winning squad following an £11.75million deal with Olympiacos.
