The dream chasing Klopp


/ by Biyi Akangbe
Of all the numerous praises Jurgen Klopp has received for rebranding Liverpool, not a lot has been made about his excellent achievement of guiding Borrussia Dortmund to back to back Bundesliga titles. In a League dominated by the German dynasty in Munich, Klopp even surpassed his own predictions of both Sportsbetting Lines  and pundits when he won the title in 2012 for the second time in a row. ‎

Such a magnificent triumph was apparently followed with an inspiring run into the Champions League final, only to be thwarted in the last huddle by you guessed it, Bayern Munich.

Nonetheless, as much as Klopp enjoyed threading uncharted territory, his team took every bit of those moments in, breaking teams down with a deceitful, consummate ease, with inch perfect passing in-between the lines and literary working the ball into the net, on numerous occasions.

Roll on four years and Klopp is once again at the heart of everything beautiful football stands for, having steadied the Anfield ship since his arrival last year, and carefully strengthened what he met on ground.

It is easy to see why Liverpool favoured Jurgen Klopp to succeed Brendan Rodgers, with the N. Irish man having already purchased Klopp-esque players like Roberto Firmino, Adam Lallana, as well as Philippe Coutinho, while also sharing the philosophy of pressing from the front, keeping a high tempo and producing combination play at every given opportunity.

This season already, Klopp has pitched tents against the likes of Arsène Wenger, Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho and preserved an unbeaten status against these reputable peers.

Much like the other managers to be discussed in this part, Klopp and Liverpool non-European commitments this season has handed them a massive chance to mount their best title challenge in years, and ultimately return to the top four and Champions League places on a permanent basis.

Apparently Liverpool have played the best football this season, topping the fresh air of tactics Pep has served us with, and the sheer cohesion we've seen in patches from Arsenal. That's by no means a mean feat.

The Red Merseyside have produced 20 goals in the League so far, and are currently joint top with Manchester City with regard to "Goals Scored". One of the reasons why we've seen this level of productivity from Jurgen' men. In a season where the likes of Manchester City Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea, and even Tottenham are considered favourites to make the top four, Liverpool have found themselves occupying the third spot already heading for the matchday 10.

Level on points with League leaders City, the Reds have course to dream of winning the English Premier League this season. however, they have a huge mountain to climb, and that they have proven to be equal to the task with the win against the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea this season.

It is happy times for the Liverpool faithful, and we can only but imagine what this current team would achieve with all their stars fully over the full course of the season.
