# Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool FC Approaching “Everything” With “Year One” Mentality
October marks eight years since Jurgen Klopp took the helm of Liverpool FC, and the manager has made it clear that the team is approaching “everything” with a “year one” mentality. The evolution of Klopp’s squad has been widely discussed, as questions arise over what comes next and how the team rebuilds itself.
## Four New Midfield Arrivals
The summer saw the arrival of four new midfielders and the departure of a number of senior players, creating a fresh look in the engine room. This was something that was desperately needed, and Klopp knows it is “still early days” as “we have to build a team” once more. He wants to create a “new team,” not a “replica” of what came before, and this has brought on the “year one” mentality.
Klopp told reporters on Friday: “What we did is we changed a few things, we brought in new players. Maybe for me a big difference is, and I said it to the players, obviously, that this is not year eight, I think in October I’m here eight years, [but] this is year one of the new team and that’s exactly how we approach everything.”
## History Is Only The Base
Klopp’s comments are reminiscent of his words from his first press conference, when he said: “History is only the base for us. It’s not allowed that you take the history in your backpack.” This is a new reiteration of the team and Klopp feels it is an “easy” team for supporters to love. He said: “I said before the Aston Villa game when I stand in the dressing room and look at the team I really, really love this team.”
## Building A Team
Klopp knows that building a team takes time and effort. He wants to create a team that supporters can love, and he believes that this is the only way to win something. He said: “It’s early days, and I really think it’s easy for people to love this team as well. It’s all what we need because we cannot, and Liverpool never could, they cannot start loving a team when we won something, we have to do it before, because that’s the only chance we can win something. So, let’s go for it and then we will see.”
