Jurgen Klopp Speaks On Having A Statue At Anfield After
Premier League Title Glory
Jurgen Klopp says he is “not interested in a statue” outside Anfield, despite leading Liverpool to their first title
triumph in 30 years.
The German was appointed by the Reds in October 2015 in the hope that he could be the man to bring good times back to Merseyside.
It took him a while to get going, with final heartache suffered along the way, but a wait for major silverware came to a close when a Champions League crown was wrapped up in 2019.
A larger-than-life character has always remained humble, though, and claims to have no desire to take up a standing alongside the legendary figures that have gone before him at Liverpool.
“I want to live for 30 or 40 years so I am not interested in a statue, for sure not in my lifetime – I don’t want to pass anything like that,” Klopp told reporters.
“I am the manager of this team and we won the league so people see this as positive I can imagine. I am very positive about that as well but you don’t have to compare me with these iconic figures.”
