Jürgen: Whatever happens on Sunday, we’ve made progress this season

Jurgen Klopp

19th May 2017

As Liverpool prepare for Sunday’s crunch clash with Middlesbrough, Jürgen Klopp spoke of his belief that his side have made clear progress in their development this season – but insisted now is not the time to talk about it.

The Reds play host to Boro at Anfield this weekend knowing victory will guarantee a top-four finish and with it, a place in next season’s Champions League qualifiers at a minimum.

And Klopp was fully focused on the job in hand during his pre-match press conference on Friday morning, preferring to talk about the clash rather than offering any assessment of his team’s evolution over the course of 2016-17.

Here’s a summary of what he had to say…

On the importance of Sunday’s game…

It’s important of course, another game of this so far very successful season and we want to finish it successfully, so it’s all clear. We have to perform, we have to win and if we have enough points after this matchday, then we deserve to go into the Champions League. If not, we don’t deserve it. It’s pretty easy. I’m not sure if I’ve said it before on the importance or whatever, but it only could be more important if we thought before another game this season that it was not that important. But we’ve never thought that, so it’s exactly the same importance. The big difference is it’s the last one and so it’s a big opportunity for us. It’s what we’ve tried to do the whole week and the next two days, to prepare as good as possible.
