During his first pre-match press conference as the Liverpool FC manager, Jurgen Klopp has said that he wants to see bravery and fun in the eyes of his players as they travel to White Hart Lane.
Liverpool FC take on Spurs in the first game under new manager Jurgen Klopp, hoping to get the German off to a good start.
Klopp wants more bravery and fun in the eyes of the players
Speaking ahead of the game, the former Borussia Dortmund manager was quoted as saying by the Guardian:
“Wea ve had three excellent training sessions. The boys are willing to listen. But ita s not the time to change too much a Everything would be better if we had worked together for six weeks, but ita s not a perfect world.
a I only think about what we have to do to be stable in a game. To close all the doors. We need to very active. Wea re playing a very good Premier League team on Saturday who have been together a long time. We have to run and fight together. I want to see more bravery, more fun in their eyes. I want to see that they like what they do. I saw it this week.”
Klopp wants players to respond better
Liverpool FC have not had the best of records under manager Brendan Rodgers when it comes to coming back to win a game.
Urging the players to play with confidence, more so in face of adversity, Klopp said:
a But to get tuned as a team takes time a We need to get confidence back in our skills and qualities. Against Aston Villa when this team conceded everything changed a We have to learn again that ita s not important what faults we make in a game. We have to be compact and close.a
Liverpool FC have to be on top of their game if they are to get anything from the game at White Hart Lane, with the Spurs in great form at the moment.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men are just a point ahead of Liverpool FC, but they have won three of their last four games and have not lost since their opening day defeat to Manchester United.
Liverpool FC fans will be hoping that the instalment of the German Klopp following the sacking of the Northern Irish manager Brendan Rodgers, will bring about some change in their form, and in their fortune too.
