Jürgen Klopp today reflected on reaching the 100-point milestone with Liverpool last weekend and insisted: ‘We’re really ready for the all the challenges still to come.’
The boss achieved his league century with the 3-1 win over Arsenal on Saturday, doing so in just 57 matches at the helm.
Klopp is the third quickest manager to hit the 100 mark in top-flight matches in the Reds history, with only Kenny Dalglish (48) and David Ashworth (56) doing it in fewer.
And asked what he’s learned over the course of wracking up those points, Klopp said in his pre-Burnley press conference:
“I understand the language better, that’s the main improvement for me!
“I’ve learned a lot about the league, I’ve learned a lot about the club and I’ve learned a lot about my players.
“Yes, we have improved and we are able to play good football. We have struggled in a few moments, you know about the reasons – a few injuries, too many, that’s how it is and it’s not let us develop as much as would have been possible I would think. But everything is on a good way.
“The atmosphere within the club is fantastic and we are really close together, really ready for all of what is coming up, in this season, the next season and the season after that. That is all good.
“100 points sounds a lot, but a minute ago we spoke about the matches where we didn’t get the points, so obviously it could have been even quicker and that would have been nice! It is like it is and it’s all in a good way.
“We are still all full of power, full of joy for the job and challenge.”
