Stuart Peace feels that Jurgen Klopp’s elevation to a ‘God-like status’ at Liverpool without winning any trophies is ‘quite incredible’.
The former Dortmund coach since arriving at Anfield in 2015 hasn’t won any silverware till now, on the back of having lost finals of the Champions League, Europa League and League Cup.
However, even with those runners-up medals, and incredible performance in the Premier League this campaign which saw them finishing second with 97 points, still, have seen him earning an army of fans on Merseyside.
And former England international Pearce believes this affection with Liverpool supporters without having any trophy is a bizarre situation which has not been seen in today’s modern football.
‘I think there’s a bond between him and the Anfield faithful, which is more important,’ Pearce told talkSPORT.
‘We’re talking about a manager that’s gone four years without winning something, that has created for himself almost God-like status at Anfield, which I find quite incredible.
‘If someone said to me, this manager’s going to come in, not win anything for four years and be revered by the fans and players alike; I’d say it’s not possible in the modern day.’
Meanwhile, Klopp has another chance to get his hands on the prestigious trophy on Saturday night when Liverpool faces Tottenham in the finals of Champions League in Madrid.
Reds are tipped as the favourites to lift the crown having beaten Spurs two times in the Premier League this campaign.
Klopp has revamped the Liverpool squad, and their performance has gone to just another level, and the Red’s have become a reckoning force in the European football.
