Speaking after Liverpool’s dramatic League Cup comeback against Leicester City, Jurgen Klopp waxed lyrical about his current club whilst also admitting that he would have wanted to join ‘much earlier’ had he known more about the side.
It’s a statement that’s likely to both delight and tug at heartstrings as fans wonder what might have been had the 54-year-old been a part of Anfield since before 2015.
There’s no questioning that his involvement at the helm of L4 has helped steer us back into the elite of Europe, with us very much lying dormant as a sleeping giant towards the end of Brendan Rodgers’ spell as manager.
