Qualifying for UCL would satisfy Jurgen Klopp

Mon 17 May 2021 | 19:46

Liverpool boss thinks that it would be a big achievement for the Reds to qualify for UCL.

The

Reds

, who won the Premier League last season, have been struggling with bad form and a lot of injuries this season, and now they are fighting to at least be able to play in the Champions League next season.

Jurgen Klopp

says that it would be a massive achievement if they manage to qualify for the Champions League and insists that it is always a big achievement.

When asked how big that would be, Klopp said:

"Massive, absolutely massive. It will be one of the biggest achievements, ever.

"I know how that sounds but it's the truth. Everybody here sees it like that.

"If you are going to write a book about a season and you want to be depressed afterwards, you would probably take this season.

"You read it and then think, 'that happened, and then that happened.' Most of the things you would never get in public, it's just that we had a lot of things to deal with.

"But, here we are. Whatever happened this year, it gave us the chance to hold our destiny in our hands with two games [to go.]"

The Reds will face Burnley in their next Premier League clash, and it will be a really important match for them, and Klopp thinks that it will be an interesting but tough match.

Klopp added:

"I am looking forward to the game at Burnley, it's a different game, a different mindset, a different mood.

"But we know how tough it will be. For the first time in ages, there will be supporters in the stadium at Turf Moor.

"Sean Dyche, a proper competitive guy, the team lost against Leeds pretty clearly, so they will want to strike back, all these kinds of things.

"It will be a tough one but qualifying for the Champions League should be tough, so I have no problem with that.

"We just need to make sure we are ready. We need to bring all we need on the pitch again."
