The German boss hits the 100 Champions League matches record tonight. Jurgen Klopp is looking forward to 400 Liverpool games goal as a special milestone.
Jurgen Klopp’s journey as the Liverpool manager so far
In his recent Champions League group match against Napoli on Tuesday, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will manage his 400th game overall. However, he has plenty more going on in his mind.
Since moving to Merseyside in 2015, the German has helped Liverpool recapture its former glory. During his seven years with the club, he has helped the team win the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup, Club World Cup, Community Shield, and UEFA Super Cup.
With the exception of the bizarre 2020–21 season, which was marred by injuries and played in front of no spectators, his Liverpool team has improved every year.
He is confronted with a fresh problem this year. The Reds are finding it difficult to maintain any consistency in the Premier League.
A Liverpool Icon
The 55-year-old is only the fourth Reds manager to ever oversee 400 games, joining Bob Paisley, Bill Shankly, and Tom Watson as those who have achieved the milestone.
Speaking before the match against Luciano Spalletti’s club, Klopp underlined his delight at his most recent “very exceptional” accomplishment. However, he acknowledged that it had been somewhat obscured by his team’s recent struggles.
He had earlier this year extended his contract through 2026. And he made it obvious that he wanted to continue managing Liverpool for another 200, 300, or 400 games. This left no one in any question about his dedication to the team, despite their difficult start to the 2022–23 season.
“I’m much more interested in the next 200, 300, I’m not sure, 400 and then we can talk – let me say it like this. But thank you very much, it’s a big number and I’m kind of proud of it”
When it comes to Liverpool signings, Jurgen Klopp is one of the finest choices that the team has ever made. Although the season has been exceedingly challenging thus far, this shouldn’t diminish the outstanding job Klopp has accomplished for the team up to this point. We wish Jurgen many more treasured moments in the years to come.
