Klopp insists ‘I’m not nervous’ about title race

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insists he is ‘not nervous’ as the club seek to end their 29-year wait for a league title.

Klopp’s side are unbeaten in the Premier League so far this season, and lead the title race by six points as they prepare to face third-placed Manchester City on Thursday.

Despite growing optimism around the club, Klopp says he is unaffected by the pressure of being at the top.

“I’m here for three-and-a-half years, I don’t know and I don’t think we have to think about the size of it,” Klopp told Sky Sports.

“At one point or another, some team will change the fortune. If that’s going to be us, I don’t know.

“All the other people say ‘it slipped through their fingers, they were close there’ and it’s a funny thing for all the other supporters of other clubs.

“The supporters listen to that, but I don’t, so for me, it isn’t important what happened four, five or ten years ago because it’s not my story. You need someone who was not involved in that. I am not nervous about it.

“If I fail, I fail but I don’t fail because someone failed 20 years ago. So if we succeed, we succeed, because we did it right and not because someone did it 20 years ago. We will try everything we can but we cannot try more.”
