'It is destiny' - Klopp inspired by Liverpool's Roman history in pursu


sbobet24 The Reds manager is relishing the club's return to the Stadio Olimpico in pursuit of their sixth European crown
Jurgen Klopp said he will draw on Liverpool's Roman history for inspiration ahead of their Champions League semi-final showdown with Roma.

Liverpool will face Roma for a place in the Champions League final after upstaging Premier League rivals Manchester City in the quarter-finals.

The final-four tie marks a return to the Stadio Olimpico – the scene for two of Liverpool's European triumphs in 1977 and 1984.

And Liverpool manager Klopp is relishing the club's return to the Italian capital in pursuit of their sixth European crown.

"I will watch them for sure because it is destiny," Klopp said. "If any German goes to Bern in Switzerland he cannot avoid thinking about 1954.

"There are not a lot of people around on the planet from that time now but it is just a special place. You think, 'Ok, it happened here, well done, all these guys'.

"Those Liverpool teams were great but they became great in these situations and now people say 'They did it like this'. It is good to have role models but in the end you have to do it your own way. sbobet24

"Thank God Rome is still Rome. It is the place, it is not who did what, it's the place. I love our history but it is not allowed for us to compare it constantly."

While the German is happy to look on the match and its historical ties, he knows his side will have to write their own history to join the legends of the past.

"Like someone said [we have] to write our own history. The legends we all love are around and they are clapping because they like this," he continued.

"Kenny Dalglish is over the moon and completely on fire. Steven Gerrard and all the other guys in between, you can feel it and see it. That's cool.

"Now it's a case of attitude, character stuff like that. That you stay greedy, and want to do the next step. When it's like constantly so fantastic, it's the first step to not be fantastic anymore and we have to stay this kind of angry. There is so much to go for and it will never stop."

Klopp added: "Of course if I find something that helped make this place even more remarkable or special for Liverpool then I will use it."

Liverpool host Roma at Anfield on April 24 in the first leg of their semi-final tie and play the return leg in Roma on May 2. sbobet24

Mohamed Salah's special season makes him a deserving PFA Player of the Year winner


sbobet24 Mohamed Salah has been named PFA Player of the Year after scoring 31 goals in 33 Premier League appearances for Liverpool. Here's how his special season made him a deserving winner. Jurgen Klopp described Mohamed Salah as having the "perfect mix of experience and potential" when he welcomed him to Liverpool back in June. The Egyptian was a "really exciting signing" with "incredible" qualities and an "ambitious" character. Klopp had high expectations, in other words, but even he could not have anticipated the full extent of his impact.

He could not have anticipated that Salah, remembered in England for an unsuccessful stint at Chelsea, would produce one of the best individual seasons the Premier League has ever seen. With his beautifully-taken strike against West Brom on Saturday, he became only the fifth player in the division's history to reach 31 goals in a single campaign. Alan Shearer, Andy Cole, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez are the other men to have achieved that feat but Salah could yet outstrip them all. With three games of the season remaining, he needs four more goals to set a new Premier League record. Having hit seven in his last four, it could be said that the more surprising outcome would be if he didn't. sbobet24

Even in a year in which Manchester City have raced to the Premier League title in such stunning fashion, Salah's relentless form was impossible to ignore in the PFA Player of the Year voting. There is a 16-point gap between Liverpool and City in the table, but Salah's performances are unmatched. He collected the prize on Sunday as a deserving winner. Salah has exceeded everyone's expectations but the clues were there from the start. Liverpool wrapped up his signing early - something for which Klopp would later thank his scouting department - and Salah hit the ground running, scoring four times in pre-season and marking his competitive debut with a goal against Watford on the opening day.

With his scintillating speed, bewitching movement and tireless work ethic, Salah slotted in seamlessly. He scored once and set up another in the 4-0 win over Arsenal on only his second start, and there were further goals against Burnley and Leicester - as well Champions League strikes against Hoffenheim and Sevilla - before the start of October. Salah had scored six times in 11 appearances for Liverpool at that point - an impressive return by almost anyone's standards - but it wasn't until after he returned from international duty - where his 95th-minute penalty against Congo sent Egypt to their first World Cup finals for almost 30 years - that his goalscoring hit truly outrageous levels. sbobet24
