Pepijn Lijnders described Jurgen Klopp as authentic – “he changed my view on football”

Liverpool assistant manager Pepijn Lijnders has reflected on 6 years of Jurgen Klopp in charge of the football club. In 2015 Jurgen Klopp joined the Reds and the 38-year-old, who is assisting at the Reds since 2014, has worked for 6 years under the German until now. He helped Liverpool for their 19th Premier League title win in the 2019-20 season.

The Dutchman explained what it is to work with Klopp in Liverpool, “Everyone saw what he’s done with the team and the fans over these years. All the prizes were a result of this continuity and stability. He gave Liverpool an identity again. He knows what he wants. That’s always the most important thing. He gives trust and confidence to the ones he works with, gives everyone the feeling they are a part of something bigger and everyone inside has this importance in the same common goal – both the players and the staff.”

“If you want to describe Jurgen, I would say authentic is the right word. He didn’t change my passion and beliefs, he changed my personality and my view on life and football. The club has so much potential; and, to fulfil it, you need to go back to the holy trinity of the past. Manager, fans and squad with just one belief.”

“When this happens, the football world conspires in favor of Liverpool Football Club. When a club is fighting for 30 years to win the Premier League, when a club never won the FIFA Club World Cup before, when a club gets 97 points and wins the Champions League that season, it’s clear it exceeded our expectations.”

“For me, Jurgen is like what Cruyff was for Barcelona, he’s creating something that goes beyond years. Long may it continue”, – he concluded, as reported by the club’s press office.
