Gomez Feels ‘Blessed’ With Klopp Influence

Liverpool defender Joe Gomez claims the players are “lucky” to have Jurgen Klopp as their manager. The 22-year-old England international is highly rated by the German and formed his first-choice centre-back partnership with Virgil van Dijk at the start of the season before a broken leg which took three months to fix completely curtailed his appearances.

It was clearly apparent the feeling the squad have for their manager when they hunted him down on the pitch at the Wanda Metropolitano after their 2-0 Champions League win over Tottenham and carried him to the Liverpool end before proceeding to toss him into the air several times.

“It’s only right. All of us have so much gratitude to have a manager like him,” said the defender. “For me personally he has done so much for me and all the lads think the same. “He is an unbelievable manager and someone we owe a lot to. “I think it is just his energy. Not just the tactical side of things but him as a person, that’s why there is such a connection.

“That is why we want to play for him, why we want to celebrate with him when we win because he is one of the reasons we do it. “It is special. He brings so much value to us and he shows us what it means to play for this club. “I am quite young but I know I am blessed to have a manager like him. I don’t think there are many out there who do what he does. We are lucky.”
