Klopp has yet to win any silverware in the three-and-a-half seasons he has been at the Anfield club
Jurgen Klopp says he will be ‘judged by God’ and not the amount of trophies he wins at Liverpool.
The Reds remain in pursuit of the Premier League title – sitting just one point off Manchester City – and have a Champions League quarter-final against Porto coming up.
Jurgen Klopp can still win two trophies this season With Liverpool still fighting on two fronts, Klopp’s critics who say he has to win something after losing three finals during his reign will only get louder. But Klopp is not concerned.
“You can’t imagine how (little) I’m interested in that. I never thought about myself in that (way),” he said at a press conference on Friday.
“My job is to do everything I can to help the team that we can be as successful as possible. I’m not searching to be remembered in 50 years or whatever people speak about me.
“I am not interested in who judges me. God judges me one day and that is the only thing I am interested in. What other people say about me I couldn’t be less interested.”
Klopp has yet to win a trophy with Liverpool Klopp insisted his players have not struggled with the pressure of a title race so he does not expect rivals Manchester City to suffer either.
The Reds can return to the top with a two-point lead if they beat Fulham on Sunday, leaving Pep Guardiola’s reigning champions to play catch-up as they are involved in the FA Cup against Swansea.
Klopp has been at Liverpool since 2015 But even with just eight Premier League matches left Klopp does not believe a win at Craven Cottage will exert that much pressure as he has seen first hand how his players have coped.
“Psychologically we didn’t struggle because we are not ahead of them any more and it doesn’t change,” he said.
“Being ahead of City is not that important but we have a game at the weekend and we want to win that game.

“Obviously we are then ahead but it doesn’t mean a lot. The game in hand for City is (Manchester) United, for sure not an easy one, but it is not decided at the weekend because of that.
“All the stories will be written but we will accept these stories because it would mean we would have won the game, which is difficult enough and the only thing we think about.”
