Dear any future signings, don’t break Jurgen Klopp’s glasses.
There have been a number of unforgettable moments under the German since he arrived as manager, but Liverpool’s incredible 5-4 win over Norwich earlier this year poses as one of the best.
Adam Lallana’s 95th minute winner at Carrow Road in January and the wild celebrations that followed seemed to kick start an exciting period under the guidance of Klopp.
In an excellent interview with the Liverpool Echo’s James Pearce, the former Borussia Dortmund boss reflected on that memorable afternoon and losing his glasses in the process.
He said: “They were absolutely broken! In the picture I have them in my hands. It was Christian Benteke who did it. So don’t kill my glasses or otherwise you will be sold!”
“I actually don’t wish we have games like this a lot of times because it’s quite nervy and intense. It was a very different end to the game than what happened to us at Bournemouth earlier this month!”
“In that moment, when we drove home from Norwich, I knew there would be a day when we would be on the other end of a result like that. We are a team that’s involved in a lot of dramatic endings.”
“It was a wonderful experience, that game at Norwich. It showed a lot about the boys and a lot about the spirit in the team we had after four months working together. That was a nice highlight.”
From the man himself- don’t break his glasses if you don’t want to be sold.
Our win over Norwich in January summed up everything that the manager has brought to this club in terms of our attacking power and the team’s desire to fight until the end.
It was the beginning of an already memorable experience with Klopp at the helm.
