Good mentality of players is the key of Liverpool’s huge success

Liverpool’s success this season is not only about the arrival of new players or coach Jurgen Klopp, but also the mentality of the players who develop for the better.

It is undeniable the fact that Liverpool have performed brilliantly since the arrival of Jurgen Klopp at the end of 2015. Although not having an instant impact, slowly the Marseyside Team’s performance looked much better under the direction of the German coach.

The results are beginning to be seen in the 2017/18 season. At that time, Jurgen Klopp managed to deliver Liverpool to the final round of the European Champions League. Unfortunately, they were beaten by Real Madrid in the top game with a landslide score of 1-3.

However, the peak just appeared in the 2018/19 season yesterday. This time Liverpool won the European Champions League thanks to a 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in the final round.

In this 2019/20 campaign season, the slick performance of Jurgen Klopp’s troops is underway again. They look impressed at the Premier League. In fact, of the 29 matches that have taken place, the Marseyside team only lost once and won 27 times.

With these notes, the Reds now lead the standings with a 25-point advantage over its closest rival, Manchester City. That is, only two wins to lock the Premier League title.

Talking about the success of his team, Captain Jordan Henderson admitted that Jurgen Klopp’s role was indeed very large. Especially in galvanizing the mentality of Liverpool players.

The German coach taught the players to maintain the same mentality throughout the match.

“That kind of mentality and resilience in us, especially this season, is huge in terms of the matches we have won. I felt as if it was something that the manager in the team really started to implant when he first came.”

“When he first came, I can remember he talked about never stopping and finishing or changing your mentality in the match,” Henderson said on Sky Sports News.

Liverpool this season has the opportunity to win the first Premier League title 30 years ago. But threatened with failure, following the Corona Virus pandemic which made the competition suspended.
