Jurgen Klopp enjoying management as he prepares for 1,000th game

Jurgen Klopp enjoying management as he prepares for 1,000th game

Jurgen Klopp is enjoying the "best job in the world" as he prepares for a milestone match.

The Liverpool boss will notch up 1,000 games in management when his team play Chelsea in the Premier League today (21.01.23) and feels fortunate to be involved in the game.

Klopp said: "It is a massive thing. I did the job for the clubs I loved. It is a crazy number but the beard is now really grey. That was not the case when I arrived here. I am not sure if that is because of the age and Liverpool.

"It is for me the best job in the world. It is not a relaxing job, not a job where you have a lot of holiday but I love it. I feel blessed I can do it because it is pretty much the only job I can do. I am fine with the excitement, the pressure, the outstanding moments and the less good moments. It is part of the deal. Nobody wins all the time."

Klopp believes that he was under less pressure when his career as a manager started as there was less outside noise surrounding football.

He said: "Twenty-two years ago when I became a manager did we have smartphones? No. Great times, it means much less information. I analysed games with a video recorder and a DVD; that is how I started. When you wanted to know what the outside world thought, you had to ask somebody or open a newspaper."
