Liverpool manger, Jurgen Klopp has sent an emotional Christmas message of thanks to Liverpool supporters for their great support over the course of a memorable 2018.
He also promised the Reds fans that he will do everything possible in his power to make sure that the Anfield club have a wonderful 2019 in the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup.
“This is my fourth Christmas as the manager of this incredible football club and although I am not the kind of guy to allow myself to look backwards, I think it is fair to say we have had an incredible ride in 2018 with some real highs and a couple of disappointments,” Klopp was quoted by Metro UK as saying.
“That’s what gives me the confidence and belief there is more to come from these boys in 2019, that there is more to come from this journey we are all involved in.
“We can – and should – all be proud of what the team have done so far this season, but this is only the beginning and there is still such a long way to go, both this season and in terms of what this group of players can achieve.
“The best thing about these boys, and what has helped us have such a good start to the season, is they do not listen to the noise; they are 100 per cent every single day in training and every single matchday. We know when we say ‘one game at a time’ some people might consider it football talk, but that really is the way for us. It is the philosophy that has got us to where we are currently.
“We cannot promise anything for 2019 except we – the players, my staff, the people who work at the club and me – will do everything we can to try to make it a special year.”
Liverpool are currently on top of the Premier League table with 48 points from 17 games, four points ahead of second-placed Manchester City.
Klopp’s men will tackle Newcastle United on Boxing Day at home in the Premier League fixture.
