Klopp deserves a statue at Anfield - Steven Gerrard

Klopp deserves a statue at Anfield - Steven Gerrard

The 30 years wait for a league title will finally be over in few weeks. Former player Steven Gerrard  knows what this actually meant for the club.

The hard of Jürgen Klopp and his Army will finally pay off once they pick up six points from the remaining nine games of the Premier League season.

There will be joy in Liverpool. Players, former players, coaching crew, fans, and other football lovers will rejoice with Klopp as he has delivered to the club a 30-year missing piece.

Steven Gerrard is aware of this hard work and he is already calling on the club owner to starting thinking of how to appreciate Jürgen Klopp. The Ranger's coach suggested a statue at Anfield which he thinks the German fully deserve.

'Knowing Jurgen, he won't want to be put in that bracket. I know what he's like, he's humble and respectful. Steven Gerrard told Athletic

'When you look at the scale of the job he's done, for sure he deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as those iconic managers.'

'What you need to take into consideration is that when Jurgen took over Liverpool they weren't close to being the best team in the country, they weren't even in the top four.

'To come to Liverpool when he did, get to the amount of finals that he has, deliver the sixth European Cup and then deliver the first league title after 30 years…

'For me, someone like Jurgen should be rewarded now. It seems like in football we often wait until people get older before their achievements are fully recognised.'

'But I know the owners of Liverpool won't let that happen. When Jurgen delivers the league they should already be starting work on a statue of him.'

"relief" he will feel when Liverpool finally hold the trophy aloft: "You don’t want to count your chickens until it's certain but I think we all know that it's inevitable.

'For me, there will be a lot of relief. Being a fan for a lot of those years and being a player and coming ever so close, you know that this is the one that people have craved.'

'This is the bread and butter of the club. I grew up watching all the successful Liverpool teams winning leagues. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to do it myself.

'I'm a fan now and I always will be until the day I go into a grave. When they get it done and they lift that trophy, it will be 100 per cent happiness for me. I can’t wait for it. I’ll be the proudest man on the planet.
