“I believe in a playing philosophy that is very emotional, very fast and very strong. My teams must play at full throttle and take it to the limit every single game.”
Liverpool’s season has changed in the blink of an eye. A week is a long time in football and there has been no better illustration of that than in the sea change of emotions and expectations at Anfield. The lethargy and inertia of the latter-day Brendan Rodgers era has been swept away and replaced by the unbridled optimism that the beaming presence of Jurgen Klopp can only inspire.
From a predictable, mentally fragile side that looked to be meandering through footballing purgatory, the mood has changed with ringing endorsements from a who’s who of German football illuminati from Franz Beckenbauer to Jogi Low.
