KLOPP: I WANT TO SEE FUN IN LIVERPOOL PLAYERS' EYES
The new Anfield boss says he is not interested in
expectations from outside the club and puts
enough pressure on himself to be successful
Jurgen Klopp wants Liverpool to play with "more
fun in their eyes" when they take on Tottenham at
White Hart Lane on Saturday.
The former Borussia Dortmund boss will take
charge of his first Premier League game against
Mauricio Pochettino's side, with the visitors looking
to secure only a fourth top-flight win of the season.
Klopp says he understands the pressure of the top
job at Anfield but has called on his players to enjoy
their football again in order to recapture their best
"The most important thing is to train as often and
as long as it's possible to do, and not think about
expectations from outside. I'm not interested in
them," he said on Thursday.
"The pressure I make for myself is big enough - I
don't need anyone else to tell me I have to be
successful. I know that.
"If I say we have to make a restart, we have to
start new. So I'm not interested in the faults of a
few weeks ago, I'm only thinking about making
things stable...that's what I expect, that we can see
that we have worked together. I want to see more
bravery, more fun in their eyes, I want to see that
they like what they do."
