Jurgen Klopp has dismissed any talk of his side ending up being the dominant force in English football, stating the Premier League is merely too competitive for one side to take over.

Liverpool declared their 19th league title last season and search course for a 20th this time around – although it is far from the inevitable conclusion it was this time a year earlier. Roberto Firmino’s bullet header put them three points clear of Spurs at the head of the division but there are a variety of sides who can stake a real claim to the throne this season.

Klopp was speaking after winning FIFA’s Best Male’s Coach award. At the ceremony (carried out essentially since that’s the method of things now) he saw four of his gamers; Alisson Becker, Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Thiago Alcantara; called in the FIFPro World XI for 2020.

But he says another era of domination, like those delighted in by Liverpool and Manchester United in the remote past, is merely off the cards.

” I don’t believe any person will dominate English football – it’s too challenging, 100 per cent,” he informed reporters ahead of Saturday’s trip to Crystal Palace. “The league is too challenging, the calendar is too difficult.

” We all have to ensure we make it through these insane times at the moment and all the other times as well. We had 4 gamers in the finest team of the world in the last year – one we needed to sign from Bayern [Munich], which was wise organization, I would say. We obviously have a good team.

” All the other gamers could have remained in that group, too, since of their capability, so you see we have a really excellent team here. What you constantly need in life is a bit of luck, so you can win football video games.

” The more football video games you win, the closer you concern winning trophies. If you remain in the last or whatever, then you need to make the final touch, that’s it.

” However we do not prepare world dominance for the next years. We just prepare for the next game, which is in 40-something hours at Crystal Palace.”
