Tomorrow night Liverpool will be rewarded for winning the Premier League, obtained well in advance. At the end of the match against the Chelsea captain Jordan Henderson will lift the trophy, an expected 30 years. In the press conference, Jurgen Klopp has tried to imagine that moment: “of course, I don’t know yet, but I prepared for it a bit. For me it is really hard, is a real challenge. There is a football game to prepare, a very important game, but I can not and I do not want to ignore the fact that after that game, whatever happens, solleveremo a trophy. All the Liverpool has worked so hard to get to this and I don’t want to spoil the party. Then I’ll be in a good mood, definitely. It will be one of the greatest days of my life, it will be great to finally put their hands on this trophy you have been waiting for a long time. I think, two or three years ago, nobody would have thought that would have been possible in so short a time, especially for the challenges and the opponents that we faced. I am proud, this victory is a milestone and as such we should see it. It is an important day, a very important day, but not the last very important day for us.”
Still on the feelings that will try: “it Will be a bit like Christmas: you already know that you will receive a specific gift before you, but there is still the excitement! We are very excited about. I never touched the Premier League for obvious reasons, it will be special. I am absolutely happy that the children may live this time because they deserve it more than anyone else. They deserve it because they work hard and they have suffered many disappointments in recent years”.
On Robertson: “I don’t like to talk about the prices of the players. Pay Andrew Robertson 30 million would have been convenient, but, if he had been at the height, of the 8 million would have been a lot. Robertson has proved to be even better than what we expected. Turned out to be a great person, a great footballer and great personality.”
“The best things are achieved together. This is a collective achievement and one we should all cherish and enjoy. Thank you all for everything.” ✊
