Liverpool will be playing in the Champions League for the first time since the 2014-15 season, and truly deserved this on the basis of the effort.

The 36-year-old was recently installed as Liverpool's under-18s coach and believes the man in charge of Liverpool's first team as the appeal to bring the best available talent to Anfield.

Thursday and Sunday matches can often be hard to navigate, but even though Liverpool may not be amongst the strong favourites with Bookmaker Ratings to win the competition, being back in the Champions League for the first time since 2015 is mission accomplished as far as Klopp and the players are concerned.

"We had to stay in the Champions League and we had to make at least 54,000 people [happy]".

"We're in the qualifying stage but you've got to realise that to get to the latter stages of the competition you are talking about top, top class opposition".

"I want to play for him and I am 37 next week!"

But fees have certainly evolved since then and Jurgen Klopp will be telling his board that they must start to pay the asking prices of players if they want to progress and become real contenders in both the Premier League and Champions League.

"There's no doubt about it, if he had been here three or four years I believe I would have been part of him delivering big trophies for this club".

"It's exciting times for the football club and that is something I wanted to be part of when I came here".
