‘It’s a great day’: Klopp reveals why he is so happy as Liverpool manager

first_imgJurgen Klopp hailed Liverpool’s 6-0 thrashing of Aston Villa at Villa Park as a rarity when everything went right for his team.The Reds embarrassed Remi Garde’s relegation-threatened Villans, with six different players getting on the scoresheet in a one-sided Premier League affair.“It’s a great day,” Liverpool’s German manager told talkSPORT, following our exclusive UK radio commentary of the match. “It’s not very often in a manager’s career that you have days like this, that you score the goals always in the right moment and control the game the whole time. “There were a few situations, not really dangerous, but a few situations for Aston Villa [threatening the Liverpool goal], but we defended them well.”With Liverpool 2-0 up at half-time, and perhaps mindful of the way in which they let a two-goal lead slip at home to Sunderland with 10 minutes remaining last weekend, Klopp stressed that he was aware his team needed to push on after the break at Villa.“We went in at half time, it could have been 3-0, so we had to carry on,” he explained. “[We knew] Villa will come out, they will fight back, you can hear the crowd, then we scored the goals in the right moments, and nearly everybody scored a goal.”last_img read more

Conte on whether John Terry will start his last Chelsea match at Stamford Bridge

first_img John Terry will leave Chelsea after 22 years at the end of this season Antonio Conte refused to be drawn on whether John Terry will make his anticipated final Chelsea appearance at Stamford Bridge as a starter.Terry will lift the 15th major trophy of his career after Sunday’s match against Sunderland, the Blues’ last game of their Premier League title-winning season.The defender, who will leave Chelsea after 22 years this summer, started in the league for the first time since September in Monday’s 4-3 win over Watford.The 36-year-old scored his 67th Chelsea goal on what was his 716th appearance.Assessing his options for Sunday, Conte said: “John is a champion and he deserves the best.“It will be a surprise. It’s important to make the best decision and to find the best solution for him, for his career.“He’s a legend for this club and in this season he has been very important to win this title.“For this reason I think I have to take my time and to make the best decision for him.”Terry said following the Watford win that retirement was one of the options he is considering, but Conte believes he can play on.Conte added: “John has all the possibilities to continue his career.“We all know that he is preferring to play regularly and for this reason he has decided to leave. He wants to play regularly, every week.“I think he has the possibility to do this, because he’s still strong. I think in the moment I called him to play he showed this.“When you arrive at this point of your career it’s very important to feel yourself, to feel your body, to feel your mind, to feel if you have still desire, still will to fight to arrive every day and work very hard.“If you feel this, it’s right to continue to play, to continue your career. John has all these characteristics.” 1last_img read more
