“Thank you to Jurgen, the coaching staff and the club too for what they have created. They have not only created a team that can compete and succeed, they have created a huge cultural understanding of who Liverpool are today. today.
“The stadium and the atmosphere they can create, the support, the level, the way they communicate. It’s long, not just the individuals, or the players they signed and the plan they had to get to that level. It’s quite a plan that I really appreciate, I think.
