Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is looking for a strong mini-season now, and give his team the best chance of ending a tough season on a high note.
Klopp is looking for a strong mini-season, just coming up, with the aim of being as competitive as possible.
Klopp has thus encouraged his team to “squeeze everything out of this season”, in order to finish high in 2020-21.
“There’s a lot to go for,” he told Sky Sports. “We’re not in the best position to fight for the Champions League spots but it’s clear we’ll fight for it and if not then for the other European spots.”
“It’s our job and that’s what we want. We want to be as successful as possible,” he continued.
“At the beginning of the season, we had different targets which is normal but we’re now here in our reality,” he said, “and the position is not as bad as it could’ve been so we’re going to try everything to squeeze something out of this season.”
“There are other teams in better positions, so we have to make sure that we can chase them,” he added.
And then he said: “But whether that’s possible or not will be decided in the specific games, like on Saturday against Arsenal. We don’t have many points to waste anymore and a tough programme coming up. When you’re in the situation we’re in, you’ve not got a lot to lose as well so let’s go for it.”
