Leeds [UK], Apr 21 (ANI): Jurgen Klopp, the manager of Liverpool on Saturday (local time) said that he prefers to stay indoors as the club closes in on a potential Premier League title win.
Klopp-managed-Liverpool are currently placed on the second position and they are a point behind the defending champions Manchester City.
"I don't go out — apart from football. Why should I? I have enough pairs of jeans to last me for the next 20 years, so I'm alright. I don't go to the shops. I don't do any of that. I can imagine the mood in the city is pretty good but I don't need to hear it, I don't need to see it," quoted Klopp as saying.
"But it's football, and for most of my life I have been a pure football supporter, so if my team was doing this I know what I would have been like. My favourite thing would have been a situation like we have now, where it is buzzing. I can imagine people want to go out and celebrate, talk about it, but we are not part of that. We have to make sure it stays like this – and that's no problem," he added.
Liverpool are currently going through a tremendous run, recording a 17-game unbeaten streak, including eight consecutive victories after their 4-1 second leg win over Fc Porto in the Champions League quarter-finals.
"I love the situation we are in, it's really good, but of course we have to prove it every day and every game. It's all good, but it's not perfect, so we have to carry on working like we have been doing," Klopp said.
Liverpool are also preparing for a blockbuster semi-final match in Champions League against Lionel Messi's Barcelona.
