Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists he will not judge his time at Anfield on how many trophies they win.
Klopp has overseen dramatic change at Liverpool having joined the club in 2015.
The German manager has turned a sleeping giant into a consistent force both at home and abroad, winning the Champions league in 2019 and the Premier League in 2020.
But Klopp insists “the position the club is in is much more important” than the gongs.
He said: “I would love to say we were (league) champions in 2019 as well and that we won the Champions League final in 2018 (they finished runner-up in both), so that all would have been great. But I don’t judge my time here about the trophies too much.
“I know everybody else is doing that, but for me it is the way we play and develop and the way the club is, the position the club is in is much more important. It is a healthy club in a good situation.
“I know the stories on us are very positive in the moment and rightly so, the boys deserve it, but we all know one failure, one little wrong step and at least one competition could be gone so we have to make sure.
“We just feel ready for the next challenge and that’s all I need.
“There is no big celebration about the development of the club in the last few years, it’s just really serious work and I am very, very happy about that.”
Liverpool could end the season with an historic quadruple, and when asked about the challenges of fighting all fronts, Klopp did not complain about the situation they find themselves in.
He added: “It is nice, we enjoy it. Training sessions are very short. The meeting we had this morning was shorter than the training session.
“It is the situation we would have dreamed of.
“[Liverpool’s maturity] is massive but it is not the only thing we need. We need desire, mentality and excitement. You can’t buy that – you have to mature as a player, as a coach and as a team. You judge things calmer in the future. That is experience.
“We have played games before when we were 1-0 up and we were still running like mad. I want my players thinking in the right way and that is what I saw on Saturday.”
