Liverpool winning Premier League would be Klopp’s finest achievement – Langerak

The former Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper spoke to Stats Perform about his old boss, providing an insight into the Reds manager

Jurgen Klopp guiding Liverpool to a drought-ending Premier League title has the potential to be his finest achievement, according to former Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Mitch Langerak.

Liverpool were on the cusp of claiming their first league crown since 1990 before the coronavirus pandemic suspended the Premier League in March, with Klopp’s side 25 points clear on top of the table.

Klopp has already delivered a Champions League trophy to Anfield following last season’s triumph as well as UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup silverware, having won back-to-back Bundesliga titles during his time at Dortmund.

However, asked if leading Liverpool back to the top of English football would be Klopp’s finest achievement, Langerak told Stats Perform: “Potentially, because the Premier League is hard to win.

“It’s not just Dortmund/Bayern Munich or Dortmund/Bayer Leverkusen battling it out. The Premier League you probably have three to four or five teams that could win it. So maybe it would be his finest achievement.

“However, obviously winning the first Bundesliga that we won in Dortmund was huge. Then to go back-to-back, win the cup that year doing the double. That was a huge, huge thing, with such a young and relatively unknown squad.

“There were a lot of players many people didn’t know, they brought [Shinji] Kagawa from Japan‘s second league and came in straight away first game and killed it.

“He did some amazing things with a lot of players who had just come in. I think he has a lot of achievements, so potentially you could say the Liverpool one would be his finest.”
