With the quadruple in sight, this Liverpool team may become the greatest ever premier league side. It won’t be an easy mountain to climb as they will need the Cityzens to drop point in their last premier league fixture and will also need to triumph over the king of champions league, Real Madrid, in the UEFA Champions League final.
Just seven years ago, when Liverpool appointed Jurgen, many didn’t believe they’ll become one of the most formidable sides in Europe. The rebuilding, a process their rivals, Manchester United, can’t seem to comprehend, took time, and €532,850,000 spent on transfers to date. Their recent success only helps showcase why Jurgen Klopp is the current longest serving manager in England.
It wasn’t always rosy, they have had their own fair share of indespicable loss. The UEFA Champions league final loss to Real Madrid comes to mind. It was a day to forget for the Kopites as their star player, Mo Salah who was having the season of his life, got off injured and their goalie, Karius, committing all sort of blunders to make Real Madrid run riot on them. Salah has been craving a revenge and it looks like the perfect opportunity has arrived when they face Real Madrid in the UCL final on the 28th of this month with Mo Salah posting “we have a score to settle on Instagram”. Before their defeat in 2018 UCL final, they have had an agonizing defeat to Sevilla in the 2015/2016 Europa league final.
Not until 2019 when they won the UCL against a remarkable spurs side they haven’t had anything to show for their rebuilding progress. It was evident that the Liverpool side were more experienced and informed. Some consider the game as the most boring UCL final but to the team and fans, it was one of their most memorable days. Even though they won the UCL, their episodes of setbacks still haunted them as they lost the premier league by 1 point in a season that was their highest point tally ever.
When Jurgen Klopp won the best manager of the year in 2020, a lot of people did not believe as Hansi Flick won every title possible with Bayern Munich. Jurgen’s team had done the impossible, they had won their first premier league title in 30 years, a feat Liverpool’s club legend, Steven Gerrard, couldn’t achieve. They were utterly ruthless and left their rivals, Manchester City, in second place with 18 points gap.
They had suffered mild setback in 2020/2021 season going trophyless owing to a ton of injuries. Like every top team, they’ve bounced back and unlike most teams they’ve done it in style. Now competing for the quadruple, a feat that has never been attained by an English side, this will definitely be one of the most romantic football stories ever if they achieve it, from winning no trophy to winning all the trophies.
Bravo Jurgen, he has turned the average Liverpool side to a beast mode team, a sight opponents do not want to gaze. Chelsea has been a victim of their brilliance and resilience twice already this season losing the FA cup and Carabao cup final to them on penalties.
