Klopp speaks on Liverpool winning Premier League, Champions League this season

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has said he is not “good enough” to decide, whether he will prioritise winning the Premier League over retaining Liverpool’s Champions League title this season.

Klopp won his first European title last term, with victory against Tottenham in Madrid.

But the Reds had finished one point behind Manchester City in the league.

Liverpool have not won the league title since 1989/1990, but Klopp is refusing to set any specific targets at this stage of the campaign.

“Unfortunately I am not good enough to decide that! I have to take what I can get. That is how it is.

“We didn’t decide last year that we would go for the Champions League and ignore the Premier League obviously so we just try to win the next football game.

“That is [Wednesday] night and that is difficult enough. I am not a genius so I have to take what I can get.

“Last year thankfully we won something, celebrated it, so now let’s carry on,” Klopp told the media ahead of the Super Cup match against Europa League winners Chelsea in Istanbul on Wednesday.
