Klopp aims to inspire Reds to cup victory

Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp hopes to find the right words of inspiration to spur his team to lift the Capital One Cup on Sunday.

After five months in charge of the Reds, Klopp has a chance to capture his first silverware against Manchester City at Wembley.

“I never write it down, that’s for sure. We will have a few words together and hopefully the right ones, but they won’t decide the game. It is only one part of all things of preparation,” Klopp told the club’s website.

“It’s always spontaneous, it’s always like this and I never plan things like this. My whole life is preparation for all the things I say, and that’s how it is.”

The German-born tactician also admits that the return to fitness of some players has made it more of a challenge to select a starting team.

“I’m pretty cool in this. I always make the line-up only to win the game and not to give presents for some players.

“When we make the decision on which is the best line-up, I don’t like to upset players, to say ‘sorry you are not involved’ or things like this.

“That’s not how it works. You have to make decisions like this, that’s how it always is but it is not that I want to do this, it’s only part of the deal.”
