Jurgen Klopp expects Liverpool trophies in coming years of reign

Jurgen Klopp lost yet another final as a manager

Jurgen Klopp admits he has no idea when he will win silverware but does not want to be remembered as the "fun" Liverpool manager who failed to secure a trophy.

The German celebrated his three-year anniversary at Anfield on Monday but despite taking the club to three finals he has yet to win one.

Klopp has, in fact, lost his last six finals since winning his first with Borussia Dortmund in 2012.

Sky Bet offer 20/1 that Liverpool win the FA Cup and Premier League double this season but bet 8/13 that they again go without a trophy.

At his presentation as Reds boss in October 2015 he pledged to win a title within four years. But after three near-misses, the last in May's Champions League defeat to Real Madrid, he admits he does not know when that claim will come to fruition.

"I have said it a few times: I have no idea when we will win something, but I'm sure this club will win something," he said in an interview with Premier League Productions.

"I don't know when so let's have the best times of our lives until then.

"Let's enjoy the world, let's enjoy the football, let's enjoy the journey and it's what we did so far - it was a good time.

"Nobody wants to look back in 10 or 20 years and say 'So the best time we had without winning anything was when Klopp was here. It was so funny and all that stuff'.

"That's not really something you want to achieve, we still have time to do something special and we know that to underline the development and progress, we have to do it."

Liverpool have been touted as Manchester City's nearest challengers for the Premier League this season and are currently level with Pep Guardiola's side and Chelsea on 18 points after eight matches, having yet to be defeated in the league.

"If you think about it, we are maybe in the best moment for ages, but a few other clubs are the same and they made the same steps so that makes it really hard," Klopp added.

"It looks like we are really on a good way and the only thing I can guarantee is that we constantly develop.

"Our little problem is many other clubs develop as well so it's never that you improve 20 per cent and the others get 20 per cent weaker.

"They try to do the same, to reach the next level, and that's the challenge we all face. It is interesting, but tough as well.

"As I said in my first press conference here, if anybody thinks that I can perform wonders then it could become really difficult in the future, because I can't."
