FSG have refused to be drawn on publically issuing targets for Jurgen Klopp this season.
“I don’t think it’s helpful to set any targets publicly,” said Tom Werner, the club’s Chairman.
“We are all in agreement, it’s about development and improvement. We all want to win as much as we can and believe we are in a good place. We are confident that there’s no ceiling on what we can hope to achieve. We’re all very ambitious.” (Echo).
Klopp got to two cup finals in his debut season at Anfield – losing to Man City in the League Cup final and Sevilla in the Europa League final.
Despite that, Werner said they were so impressed with the German that the biggest achievement of last season was simply bringing him to the club.
“It was a season in which in retrospect the most important decision we made was recruiting Jurgen to come to Liverpool. We are absolutely convinced that decision will pay dividends and we will win a lot of trophies going forward,” he continued.
“Last season was probably a bit of a transition for Jurgen but the overall impression I had was we enjoyed some wonderful moments. The match against Dortmund at home was thrilling. We are very confident that Jurgen and his staff will lead us to many successes going forward.”
What do you think about Werner and FSG’s attitude? Is it wise not to place targets on a season, or does it show a lack of ambition? Is it safe to assume there are private targets in place? Let us know in the comments…
