Klopp urges Liverpool to use the ‘wonderful base’ they’ve created

Jurgen Klopp has urged Liverpool to use the ‘wonderful base’ they have created as the season draws to a close.

Klopp’s side currently sit top of the Premier League with seven games remaining, two points clear of Manchester City who have a game in hand.

The club are also through to the Champions League quarter-finals where they will face Portuguese side Porto in the last eight, and Klopp has urged his side to build on their success so far.

“It is [exciting], absolutely,” Klopp told liverpoolfc.com.

“That’s what we were always talking about – a season is like that, you constantly prepare a basis for the final weeks. We are now in the final weeks and there will be no interruption anymore, there will only be game after game after game and they all are very, very important.

“On the one side, opponents fight for the Champions League spots, and on the other they will fight [to stay in] the league.

“I think only Wolves in the last match, they are not fighting for Champions League and not fighting for staying in the league, but we all see what shape they are in – and they can go to the FA Cup final, so that’s exciting for them. But these are our opponents.

“Champions League, we don’t have to talk about that because they are all finals, each game is a final. Hopefully we can stay in that competition for a while.

“We created a wonderful base, now let’s use it.”
