“It makes you aware how special it is to win”: Jurgen Klopp insists that Liverpool’s recent defeats have taught his players to cherish inevitable Premier League title wins and their sublime season
- Jurgen Klopp said the recent Liverpool defeats have made them appreciate that they are winning
- The Reds lost three of their last four before defeating Bournemouth on Saturday
- Kopp insisted that the results helped them appreciate how good this season has been
Jurgen Klopp insisted that losing three of the last football games has taught his team to cherish their title win and their extraordinary season.
In 30 years Liverpool came a step closer to a historic first title by winning back their winning ways with a 2-1 win over Bournemouth.
And Kopp insisted that although last week’s defeat to Watford, which was followed by the FA Cup defeat to Chelsea, meant that they were no longer invincible, it at least helped to appreciate how good this season has been.
Jurgen Klopp said the recent Liverpool defeats have made them win even more
“There is nothing good about losing games, but it makes you aware of how special it is to win,” Klopp said. “We had that for the past two weeks when we lost the games; you appreciate much more.
“IF the title will happen, it will feel very special. IF it will happen. Today it was important to make it happen. That’s how it is, nothing else. Now we have three or four days to prepare for Atletico Madrid in a beautiful stadium with a sensational performance. I think that was the best performance at a 12.30 hour competition from our audience since I came here. I loved it. “

Klopp was unhappy when VAR Michael Oliver did not refuse Bournemouth’s goal after Callum Wilson seemed to be pushing Joe Gomez, but the manager of Liverpool was happy with the reaction of his team.
“I’m excited,” he said.
‘I was absolutely satisfied with the result, the three points and the performance. I knew it would be difficult. The referee’s decision on the [Bournemouth] goal made it harder.
“We wanted to fight back and then we had to fight back. And it was exceptional. The moment you have to fight back for momentum and you get a decision [like that], there are teams in the history of football that are slipping. But I loved the boys’ reaction. “
