Jurgen Klopp has his sights set on a deep run in the Europa League. He intends to field a strong team in order to maximize Liverpool's chances of making it to the final on their return to the competition.
Last season the Reds finished fifth in the Premier League, missing out on Champions League qualification and instead returning to the second tier of European football. Klopp believes that his squad can be successful in the Europa League and has high hopes of reaching the final, as Liverpool did in 2016 when they lost to Sevilla.
The German has stated that his team must respect the competition and opponents in the right manner. He said, “I would love to go to the final, obviously, but I have no clue if we can reach that because there will be a lot of fantastic football teams in between us and that target, so we have to make sure we perform.”
Klopp believes that as long as Liverpool avoid any major injuries, they can field a top team both on Thursdays and Sundays. He said, “We have real talent there, but it is not experimental. I think if we don’t get hit by an injury crisis then we should have enough players to field Thursday and Sunday a top team, and that’s pretty much the idea.”
Liverpool must continue to respect the competition and opponents in order to achieve success in the Europa League. Klopp is confident that with the right attitude and preparation, his team can make a deep run in the tournament.
