Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has said that he has been urging his players to retain their focus and perspective ahead of Wednesday clash with Chelsea at the Merseyside Stadium.
Liverpool will be handed the Premier League trophy after Wednesday’s game with Chelsea at Anfield, after winning it with a record seven games to spare, and their first top-flight crown in 30 years.
Such a moment according to Klopp in an interview with Skye Sports, will be the most special moment of the staff and players’ lives.
Klopp, who insisted that it is vital his players enjoy the moment, said winning the title for Liverpool is the most “special thing you can imagine.”
“I told the boys already that we have to prepare two things this week. “Prepare for the game against Chelsea, which we will do in training, and we have to make sure that we really feel the right thing in the moment when it happens.
“On Wednesday, we will cherish it. In this moment, we have to stop for a second, look at it, be really happy about it, enjoy it together with our fans all over the world, in heart and mind, and make it the most special moments of our life so far.
“Being here champion is the most special thing you can imagine. We all have to make it a special moment inside and keep it forever inside.”
Jurgen Klopp to cherish moment without fans
Klopp, who was also a Bundesliga winner with Dortmund in 2011 and 2012, said he will cherish the moment despite no fans in the stands.
Only one member of his squad has won the Premier League – James Milner, while he was with Manchester City.
“It is so big and so incredible what the boys did, and how they did it, and for different reasons, it was very challenging. We have to feel it in an appropriate way, and we will.
“We are since five matchdays or so ago a champion, which is completely special. We’ve had guard of honours, all the things we’re not used to, then we win a game: great. We lose a game: not so great. I will never underestimate a defeat, but we cannot forget that we won the league in a pretty exceptional manner.”
