Klopp the moment he heard that Liverpool was interested
Jürgen Klopp opens up that his most important moment with Liverpool remains his first interaction with the club.
It’s been five years since Klopp became coach of the Reds, and although he has led Liverpool since then to winning four major titles, including the sixth European Cup and the first league title in three decades, this is his first phone call with the club. Long vivid in memory.
“He made everything that remains happen. I can’t forget the moment I got a call from my agent that Liverpool was interested. And the feeling I had at that moment.
“I said that several times, I was in a completely vacation mood; we were in Portugal, in Lisbon, with the family, and the boys were with us. First and I were sitting in an outdoor cafe.
“I didn’t actually get a lot of phone calls at the time, it was like, ‘Come on, don’t bother me. “But then I saw it and I had a feeling it could be an interesting thing. So I took the phone and it told me, and I got excited inside.
“But because of all the things I said to my family before, I couldn’t say right away,“ Yes! Let’s do it! ‘ I had to ask, “What do you think?” I still remember both boys being like, “Yes!” We looked at Ulla and looked at us all: “Oh, it looks like the vacation is over!”
“It was a really wonderful moment to be together. Nothing was set at that moment, and I didn’t talk to anyone else. We got back home, Mike Gordon called me two days later, after a day, whatever. Then I flew to New York and all those.” The things.
“But this first moment when I realized Liverpool’s interest was really special. From that moment it got better and better.”
