Klopp wants title for 'phenomenal' fans

7th April 2019, 13:54 by Simon Barlow

Jurgen Klopp says it would be "an absolutely huge thing" for him to win the Premier League title for Liverpool's "phenomenal" support.

The Anfield boss has once more reiterated his admiration for the Reds' support and acknowledges the fervency some have for the current title tilt.

"To exaggerate: some (Liverpool fans) would be ready to jump off the 16th floor of a building if it meant winning the title," Klopp told Die Welt am Sonntag.

"If we can use that to make the fans happy with the title, it would be an absolutely huge thing for me. But, it means even more to the fans."

Klopp knows that Liverpool's fanbase has been waiting for almost 30 years for the Premier League trophy to be lifted by the club's captain and admits the title would mean more to them than it would to himself.

He added: "Of course I know that winning the Premier League would mean a lot to our fans. I feel it clearly by their reactions at games. What they put on for our home against Tottenham last weekend was phenomenal.

"When we conceded the equaliser, they were immediately there and signalled to us that something will still happen. That was extraordinary. I'm used to a lot of good atmospheres from Dortmund but I hadn't quite experienced that in this form here.

"I would certainly not die unhappy if I don't become champion again as a coach. But, I'm here to try everything to do it. The club has given me and my coaching team the means to put together a good team."
