‘Barcelona Comeback Worth More Than Trophies’- Liverpool Boss Klopp
There they’ll face Premier League rivals Tottenham after Spurs had an impressive second-half comeback of their own to advance past Ajax..
And Klopp thinks such moments are worth a great deal themselves as he hopes to build a club that is entertaining and enjoyable for the supporters.
“A moment like this is worth more than silverware,” Klopp told reporters.
“This season has been a year full of wonderful moments, wonderful moments altogether. Looking forward to games, enjoying games and last Tuesday was like the icing on the cake so far. Wow. That’s exactly the picture we want to draw for the outside world – this is Liverpool.
“It’s possible here. It’s possible in this club and in this city with the people around. That’s the picture. If that leads to silverware, then wonderful. But we cannot do more. If people judge me on not winning something in the past or winning something in the future, I cannot change that.
“We do all this for entertainment. The people that go there want to go there and enjoy the game. They think two days before and three days after about this game.
“Heart surgeries are much more important but I don’t think people want to read as much about heart surgeries as they do about football. That’s clear.”
