Each trophy has a special appeal but the FA Cup is the only one many of Klopp’s Liverpool side have not won – The Athletic

Twenty years ago this month, Gerard Houllier infamously described Liverpool as “10 games of greatness”.

It was an attempt to inspire his players in their quest for glory, but those words would always haunt him. Eliminated by Bayer Leverkusen in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, they failed to catch Arsenal in the Premier League title race and ended the 2001/02 season empty-handed.

There will be no similarly bold statements from Jurgen Klopp as he looks to reinforce February’s Carabao Cup triumph.

The current harvest is a dozen matches of immortality, but her manager has been working overtime to keep things under control. He knows that with so much effort, the pressure increases with every competition and doesn’t want to increase it any further. He knows how quickly the landscape can change.

“A situation full of opportunities,” said Klopp recently, which is new territory even for a club of Liverpool’s caliber.

It’s mid-April and a clean break is still possible. This is the first time in their history that they have reached the semi-finals of the League Cup, FA Cup and Champions League in the same season.

Klopp has pointed out that no English club have ever managed the quadruple because maintaining a challenge on all fronts is brutally difficult. The packed schedule is mentally and physically demanding. He believes that TV companies hinder rather than help the most successful teams in their planning. You also need luck to shine in key moments for you.
