Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp reflected upon a challenging year affected by Covid at different times. Although the last 12 months have not been as disastrous for Liverpool it has been quite a stressful time for most off the pitch. One of the most iconic moments was undoubtedly Alisson’s 95th-minute header as he became the first goalkeeper to score for the club. The winner helped them secure third place and an automatic Champions League qualification spot.
“Qualifying for the Champions League was for us an absolute highlight and the way we did it but the year started off with an awful injury crisis and you don’t want to have that on top of all the corona things around,” Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said. “It was a really tough time. We made it somehow happen and we needed the goal from our goalkeeper and that was a massive highlight, no doubt about it. A very good pre-season, we played an absolutely OK season so far, that’s absolutely true but with all the things around it’s just tricky.”
“You arrive in the morning and you never know who you have available the next morning. It’s not cool. That’s why I said: the year was not a catastrophe but it’s not one I’ll remember for ages.” he added. “The new normal is better than the other normal in Covid but there’s still space for improvement towards the real normal, I can’t wait for that.”
