After winning against Aston Villa Klopp was asked about the local footage after Curtis Jones’ goal. The German coach spoke about his dreams.
Jurgen Klopp says his dream is to make Liverpool full of Scousers, or players raised in the Liverpool region.
A young midfielder, Curtis Jones, who was born in Liverpool and raised by the club, was awarded a new 5-year contract by Klopp on Saturday.
On the second day after signing the contract, 19-year-old Jones was able to appear in the match against Aston Villa. That’s where he scored his first goal in the Premier League.
“The dream is for the whole team to be staffed with Scousers and players with Scousers’ fighting spirit.” – Klopp said after winning with Aston Villa.
With this, the German made a reference to the fact that he does not evaluate the players only by his place of birth. For example, like Jones, Klopp gave a chance to England’s Under-17 striker Harvey Elliott, who was born in Surrey County, South England.
Liverpool defeated Aston Villa.
As you may know, after winning the gold medals, the Merseyside team visited Manchester City in the last round and lost 0: 4. The coach of the host team Pep Guardiola joked about the opponent – ‘they drank so much beer in four days, this result is not surprising.’
But, in the 33rd round of the Premier League, the champion Liverpool defeated Aston Villa 2: 0. In that match Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah has scored his 100th goals in 116 appearances for England in the Premier League. Only Alan Shearer is ahead of him, who scored 100 goals in only 100 matches.
Also noteworthy that Reds’ forward Sadio Mane scored 20+ goals in the third season in a row.
