Former Liverpool coach sends message to Klopp amid title race

Former Liverpool coach Brendan Rodgers says Reds should remember their past experiences in order to be careful in title race this season.

After several failed season, Merseyside club are now closer than ever to win the title for the first time in almost 30 years.

Liverpool have lost only once this season, and they had a massive chance to increase the gap of points against Manchester City, but failed to win Leicester City at Anfield.

Rodgers was the last Liverpool coach who almost won the title in 2013/14 season, when he took phenomenal 61 points in 24 games during the season.

The famous matches against Chelsea and Crystal Palace broke hopes of Reds, while Manchester City took the title.

He told TalkSport: “The last fourteen games, we actually won twelve of them and drew one, and obviously the big loss for us was the Chelsea game, and we still ended up losing the title.

“It’s one where it’s very difficult. It’s an incredible club, the support base is amazing, but because it’s so long [since winning a title], the emotion can have an effect.

“It’s trying to manage that, keep that calmness. Use that emotional connection but also try to ensure that you don’t over-think it and just play the game rather than the whole process, which is trying to win the league.”
