(Reuters) – Liverpool may have a historic quadruple in sight, but manager Juergen Klopp has insisted pressure is not a factor as his side prepare to face Wolverhampton Wanderers on the final day of the season of the Premier League.
Liverpool, who have already won the domestic cup double, must beat Wolves at home on Sunday and will hope leaders Manchester City falter against Aston Villa to secure the league title.
“I can’t speak of pressure for the other team, but for us there is no pressure,” said Klopp, whose team will also play in the Champions League final against Real Madrid in one week.
“We know we have to win the football game, but we’ve had it for a while. It’s not about ‘what if’. We don’t have that… For us, it’s quite positive , it’s so special . And if you have something to lose, it’s different, but we don’t have that.”
Liverpool were beaten to the title by City on the final day of the 2018-19 season. Klopp said they will continue to make life difficult for Pep Guardiola’s side even if there is a repeat on Sunday.
“The greatest defeats of my life have led to the greatest successes of my life, wherever I have been,” added the German.
“No matter what happens on Sunday, we won’t stop. We won’t stop trying. Yes, we have the best opponent in world football, which is a bit of a shame, but they have us in the neck, this which isn’t too cool like well. So let’s see.
City are targeting a fourth league title in five years, while Liverpool are seeking their second since the 2019-20 season.
