Dejan Lovren can’t believe how much Liverpool’s improved under Klopp

Since taking over for Brendan Rodgers in October 2015, Jürgen Klopp has taken Liverpool from eighth place to a pair of fourth-placed finishes to a remarkable 97 point second-placed season.

Dejan Lovren has seen the entire project unfold since joining in 2014 and commended the gaffer on his remarkable achievement of taking Liverpool to back-to-back Champions League finals.

“When you look back on the last three years, it was every season improvement,” Lovren told Liverpool’s official club website.

“When Klopp came, every year we did better and better. Last season we did quite well, we had quite a lot of injuries and reached the final of the Champions League.”

“This year, with the new players, we reached second place with 97 points, it’s incredible, and again the final of the Champions League so definitely we are again one of the contenders for next year to do something great.

“With this team, we can only improve.”

Liverpool will face Tottenham in Madrid on 1 June.
