“Try to be as annoying as possible” – Jurgen Klopp wants Liverpool to be ready to Attack if Manchester City slip up
The Red’s boss Jurgen Klopp has spoken on Liverpool’s need to capitalise on Manchester City’s slip-ups.
Liverpool Fc are currently sitting six points behind Manchester City in the league table, with a game In hand and They could go within three points on the table if they beat Leeds United on Wednesday. Both teams still have to face each other in the premier league in April.
Klopp has said that his team needs to be ‘as annoying as possible to remain in the title race. Speaking ahead of the Leeds game, the German tactician said:
“We try to be as annoying as possible, somehow, until we have a chance to overtake. I don’t know when they will be; IF that will be the case. I think what Pep said, and maybe told me…we are a pain in the lower back, or can be (to them) that’s a good description, and that’s how it should be.”
He added:”I think we are pushing each other; I think that is how it is a little bit; it just keeps you going. There is no chance to get a bit soft because the other one will be there immediately to catch you.”
Klopp was all praise for Manchester City and other teams that have ‘pushed’ each other in the league. He also mentioned that the crucial time of the season is yet to come, in March and April, saying:
“It’s been going a while that both teams are able to do some special stuff, I have to say. And that’s with all respect because City are doing something incredible,” he suggested.
“I don’t forget the other teams who are pushing too. I don’t forget Chelsea, United, Arsenal, Tottenham, whoever is there. But we are pushing each other.”
The Reds manager added: “What I always said is, you have decisive moments of the season, but it is not now; it is not February; it is March, April, rather.
“So you have to be close enough to make a decision in your direction, and I don’t know if that will be the case because what we do is pretty special, and I don’t expect that to happen every week.”
