Jurgen Klopp and his team will try to secure the Champions League in the last 3 rounds. Much will depend on the results of Manchester United as well as Newcastle United. The German will have a tough match against Aston Villa today, in which Liverpool must win if they want to still be in the fight for the Champions League.
Jurgen Klopp put special emphasis on the footballers who will leave the club at the end of this season. "This game will be super difficult for different reasons. We spoke already with the boys; it is super important but also super emotional,” -he said, as quoted by eurosport.com
“We are saying goodbye to, from my point of view, four Liverpool legends.
Two of them were here when I arrived, Milly and Bobby, and all the good things that have happened wouldn't have without them.
Ox came in, then Naby. Ox was unlucky in moments, bad injuries at bad moments, but he's a fantastic guy.
When people think about Naby, [he's had] a few too many injuries, but he played and performed well in some important games. We love them but it is professional football; nothing is forever."
Jurgen Klopp on the Champions League
After the match between Brighton and Newcastle, Klopp spoke about the chances for the Champions League.
The German emphasized that he is ready to play the season without elite competition. However, he is aware that most things depend on them, and that his team must win the remaining matches. "I never had hope for that. It is no problem,” he said.
“I know we have to win our games and maybe then we have a chance, maybe.
I watched [Newcastle beat Brighton] but didn't think when they scored that I was disappointed. That happened once in my life, when Vincent Kompany fired a ball in the goal [for Manchester City against Leicester in 2019]. It is not in our hands; whatever they get, they deserve."
