Klopp desperate for FA Cup success

Jurgen Klopp has been a sensation since arriving in England to take charge of Liverpool, but the FA Cup remains a trophy that has evaded the German’s grasp.

Incredibly, the Anfield club had not made it beyond the fifth round under his management until this season.

However, the Reds boss is hoping to put that record right this afternoon, and is well aware of the competition’s history and tradition.

To avoid any doubt, I absolutely love this competition. I recognise its importance in our club’s own history and how much it means to our supporters.

I was blessed to have great experiences back in Germany with our own version, but I am fully aware of the tradition, sentiment and regard English football holds for the FA Cup.

To be honest, it does have a special place in the hearts of supporters even beyond these shores. Up until this season, Liverpool’s record in the tournament since my arrival has not been a reason for big parties I would admit.
