We can write history under Klopp, says Georginio Wijnaldum

Ever since his arrival at Anfield, Jürgen Klopp has overseen a revival in many important things at Liverpool.

He has brought back the passion amongst the fans and the players. He has brought exciting football back to the team and has been the catalyst for some incredible comebacks in his short time at the club.

Now, Georginio Wijnaldum, believes that the "one of a kind" Reds boss can lead the team to a season where they will "make history".

No other like Klopp

Summer signing Wijnaldum has hailed Klopp's methods and spoke highly of the passion that the German has for the club.

"You experience it in a meeting," he declared. "The way he coaches from the sidelines with a lot of passion."

The Netherlands international also appreciated the desire of his manager for the team to "get to a higher level." He says he is confident that Klopp is "the right man" to achieve the objectives that they've set for themselves with the current set of players.

Gini says that Klopp gives the players "belief and confidence" with the way he talks to them, and that Klopp "forces" the squad to use their quality, which is "good."

It is clear that Klopp shares a bond with almost every player in his squad, shown in the team celebrations against Arsenal on the opening day after Sadio Mane scored the fourth.

The German has set an example for other managers with the way he communicates with his players, with his passion being replicated in almost equal amount by the players themselves.

Confidence is vital

Klopp encourages his players to improve with every session and Wijnaldum says that the Liverpool boss gives them "the confidence to not be afraid to make mistakes." 

This gives the players a "good feeling" says Wijnaldum, with players such as Alberto Moreno having been heavily criticised on social media for recent errors.

The former PSV captain has hailed the way Klopp looks at the game and his way of approaching fixtures, and while he has seen many different coaches, he acknowledges that there is none like the German.

Achieving targets

Wijnaldum made the move from Newcastle United to Liverpool to win trophies and enjoy success, as he said himself.

The Reds' No.5 believes that Klopp has a squad which is very much capable of delivering silverware this season.

He said that  Liverpool is a club with a "beautiful history " and says that now the team has to make "new history" with the club by winning titles.

He believes that a club like Liverpool "deserve it" and that they can achieve their targets when they work as a team. Wijnaldum acknowledges that the task won't be "easy"  but says that it is not impossible with their talent.

The club must stick with the vision of Klopp - as they have done so far- as though he may seem inconsistent with results, progress will come with more time and experience.

Of course, Klopp needs to show that he is not all passion and that he can deliver the results that the fans demand on a more regular basis.

Having won just two trophies in the last decade, the League Cup and FA Cup, the club needs to start winning trophies again. That starts by attempting to be one of the top teams in the league again and then after that, asserting themselves in Europe once more.

For so long, we have seen some incredible things from Liverpool in the Champions League and also recently the Europa League, such as last season's unforgettable late win over Borussia Dortmund - but Klopp must make sure his side can repeat as such. 

This year, they must take advantage of playing without European football as they look to land a spot in the top-four and qualify for next year's Champions League, something that will be one of Klopp's main priorities.

Only time will tell if Wijnaldum is right to back this squad and only he and his teammates can help Klopp to bring back special times to the red half of Merseyside.
