Jurgen Klopp says stability has been implemented at Liverpool, as he looks forward to the new Main Stand opening and more great Anfield nights to restore success.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference to preview Wednesday night’s final home game of the season against Chelsea, the German spoke of his positive outlook on the club’s immediate future.

Liverpool will open their new Main Stand this summer to increase Anfield’s capacity to around 54,000 and after some memorable European nights this season, Klopp is looking forward to more of the same.

“When I came here obviously we had a few problems at home,” Klopp told reporters. “I don’t really remember in detail why we had problems, but we didn’t score enough and opponents didn’t need many chances to score. And that was not cool.

“We created some stability – that’s the truth. So we’re working longer together and that’s good! It always helps, it helps in life, it helps in football, so that’s what we did.

“And of course, if you can create atmospheres at Anfield like we did then it should be a real force, a real strength to use the stadium.”

He added, “And next year I’m really looking forward to the new stand and we’ll have more people in the stadium. That’ll be great.

“To be successful it’s important that you win games and to use the advantage of a home game is the first step in the right direction.”

Liverpool vs. Chelsea gets underway at 8pm on Wednesday night and is live on Sky Sports 2 in the UK.
