Franz Beckenbauer praise is great but I'm focused on winning trophies with Liverpool

Next up is their trip to Fulham on Sunday afternoon, needing a victory to take them back above City heading into the international break, and with only seven matches to go in the title race.

“Liverpool is a really good fit for me,” Klopp said. “I love it. There are a lot of opportunities to develop an already really good football team. So let’s work and try to make the most of it.

“I have enough confidence to say I am the right manager for this club at the moment, but we will see how it is in the future.

“We are at the right place, but we all constantly have to prove ourselves. So far, it has worked out, and hopefully it will last a lot longer. That would be cool. We are very happy about the situation and very positive about the future. We are fine with what we’ve done so far, but now we have to finish the season the best way possible.

“It is a big opportunity. We have improved a lot, but people judge it only on winning titles. We know that, but we can change it in the future.”

Any thoughts that Sunday’s match against Fulham would be easy were swiftly dismissed by midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum.

“They are struggling, fighting to survive, and that is always difficult to play against, those teams,” said Wijnaldum. “Fulham will make it as difficult as possible, and we have to be focused.”
