Jurgen klopp speaks on his 1000th game against Chelsea



Jurgen Klopp deals with 1,000th game as manager looking to fuel Liverpool’s faltering season and avoid equaling their 70-year-old record, but the German manager has horror stats against Chelsea, with even Manchester City an easier rival.


Jurgen Klopp will take charge of his 1,000th game as Liverpool take on Chelsea this weekend in one of the toughest seasons of his career.

Klopp was one of the most successful managers in modern history, with three league titles and a Champions League title.

He said: “Crazy, I have never thought about numbers like this and I never thought I would be allowed to do it for so long. You have to work 22 years and somehow get there.

“I am truly blessed. Three fantastic clubs gave me the opportunity to do my job. When you get somewhere you never know how it’s going to be and I’m really lucky to know how things turned out, 1000 is a crazy number.
“I’ve done the job I love for the clubs I love. I’m really blessed with that. I still, absolutely appreciate it. Maybe people should get an honor for 1,000 good plays, but I’m not sure anyone would live long enough for that!”

Klopp made a name for himself in his home country after his playing days with second division side Mainz ended.
In 2004, for the first time in the history of the club, the German managed his promotion to the Bundesliga.

He moved to Borussia Dortmund, where he edged out defending champions Bayern Munich in winning two Bundesliga titles.

The 55-year-old’s achievements since joining Anfield are well documented, with Liverpool winning all four major domestic trophies under his tutelage.

Not only did he end the Reds’ long wait for a Premier League title, but in all his seasons in charge he never finished outside the top four.
