Jurgen Klopp wants Liverpool to be Angry ahead of the 2022/23 season
In an effort to instil a siege mentality in his Liverpool team that will help them fight their way to victory this season, Jurgen Klopp instructed them to be angry while speaking in a recent interview as quoted by Football.London.
In the Community Shield on Saturday, Liverpool face off against Manchester City, where Klopp is urging a siege mentality to find that extra bit of motivation to take on Pep Guardiola’s team.
Klopp stated that he wants Liverpool to harness their team spirit to progress once more despite the fact that they won the FA and Carabao Cups last season and finished runners-up in the Premier League and Champions League.
“Being angry is important to fight against the outside world, all these things we can do. We don’t know where it will lead us but we know it will improve us. We don’t have to reinvent ourselves, that is not necessary, but we can include new things here and there. That is what we are really working on.”
Darwin Nunez was a big summer addition for Klopp, who claimed he feels like the lonely moaner in the room when he complains about the workload of top players. However, Klopp believes there is still room for improvement within his current squad by leveraging their sense of camaraderie.
In the Premier League, Klopp’s Liverpool team only lost two games, yet City won the league title despite beating them by one point. Any other era and you would have probably seen this LFC team sweep the floor in domestic competitions.
Liverpool cannot anticipate lower standards against City after they signed England star Kalvin Phillips and Norwegian sensation Erling Haaland this summer.
The Reds would be hoping to start the season with a bang by winning the Community Shield against City. It is one of the two titles the German manager hasn’t won in his Liverpool term and he would be looking to add the silverware to his name.

Having been on the receiving end of so many losses yet managing to win nearly every trophy in sight in England, it is fair to say we have one of the best managers in modern football in charge of our team.
