That is what we need – to stay angry, greedy and in the job – Jurgen Klopp

That is what we need – to stay angry, greedy and in the job – Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool will face Newcastle in their next Premier League fixture, looking to continue their dominance at the top of the table.

Jurgen Klopp’s side will host Rafa Benitez’s Newcastle on Boxing Day and will be hoping for another smooth victory. The Reds are four points ahead of second-placed Manchester City. Liverpool need to continue their good work in the upcoming matches to win the trophy.

Ahead of the match, Jurgen Klopp praised Liverpool’s players’ attitude against Wolverhampton Wanderers. He said, “The most important thing for us is [the reaction] after you win the last game – that is why the Wolves game was such a big challenge. Because we played against United a few days, and before that against Napoli, you are on the big stage.”

“Then going to Wolverhampton, not only on players’ minds but in people’s mind, you could drop focus a little bit. So I was really happy with our attitude. That is what we need – to stay angry, greedy and in the job. That is what we have to do against Newcastle.” he added.

Rafa Benitez will make a return to Anfield, albeit as an opposition coach. Klopp believes that the fans won’t forget people like Benitez. He said, “I think the supporters of this club are famous not to forget people who did an outstanding job here. It is not only Rafa, but it is Rafa because he is still in the Premier League and living in the area, he became a proper scouser which is quite rare for a Spanish guy.”

“I like him, he is a fantastic manager and a really good person. I’m happy for him that he always gets this kind of reception. It is nice, it shows that Liverpool fans don’t forget that easy,” he added.
