Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp hopes that the Women’s team can make the most of their chance as they return to the Women’s Super League next season. They confirmed promotion with two games to spare in front of a record crowd of 5,752. Liverpool won two consecutive titles in 2013 and 2014 before suffering a horrendous period that ended in relegation.
“Congratulations – I sent messages yesterday, I was really happy. I was following it all the time,” Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said. “After the result last week it was clear they needed a draw against Bristol to make it and they won. I’m really happy for the girls and for Matt – it is a big, big thing. Obviously, Liverpool was in the last years not famous for treating or dealing with women’s football outstandingly well. They didn’t go down to the Championship for no reason.”
“I met a lot of the girls in the last two or three months for different reasons, we did wonderful things together with Mikayla (Moore) for LGBT, which was really great and then I spoke to others, and it’s really nice,” he added. “Now they are back and we have to make sure that we use the situation. It is a wonderful team, great coach and I’m really happy for them to get promoted.”
“Liverpool is a massive football club, so to have Liverpool in the WSL – it’s huge, that’s what we want. I’m really excited for them, I think they’ve been brilliant this season,” Karen Carney said.
