Liverpool Jurgen Klopp on ESPN Luck Index: Well deserve our luck more

Liverpool Jurgen Klopp on ESPN Luck Index: Well deserve our luck more

"That's all part of the business, but it doesn't decide anything", Klopp said about his club's blockbuster summer transfer window, which has drawn widespread praise.

Klopp is yet to win any silverware at Liverpool despite reaching the finals of the 2016 League Cup and Europa League and last season's Champions League, believes Liverpool need some good fortune.

"We are still Rocky Balboa, not Ivan Drago", said Klopp. 'We know that. More clinical.

"I was surprised about the numbers, of course".

'We have to be in a championship mode.

"Nobody gives you anything back in that life for that".




"Their Achilles heel for me will be against the lesser teams and if they can break them down but I'm all over Liverpool, I think they're the team who will come second".

The ESPN Luck Index is a comprehensive research project commissioned by ESPN in partnership with Intel, carried out by the University of Bath, to examine how the Premier League would look if luck were not a factor. That's the plan. A lot of people think because of the transfer window we will [challenge more] - but that's not how it is. We need to want more and fight more.

Liverpool spent a reported £176million ($225million, 196million euros) bringing in, among others, Brazilians goalkeeper Alisson and midfielder Fabinho and Klopp hopes to deliver Liverpool's first league title in the Premier League era, with the last of their 18 champions crowns coming in 1990.

"The champions Manchester City did not lose any player and brought in (Riyad) Mahrez, so it doesn't make them weaker".

"But you all ask me about the gap to City and what we have to do. The champions are Manchester City", Jurgen Klopp continued. We saw the game against Chelsea, they are top quality. We are still Rocky Balboa and not Ivan Drago. We didn't reach anything so far. We were in finals, yes, but if we got to the final we should win it this time. "We have to be like Rocky".
