Having ended Liverpool’s 30-year wait for an English top-flight league title back in 2020, 12 months after guiding the club to a sixth European crown, the German’s perspective appears to have been somewhat altered. The FA Cup remains the one main honour which has evaded him so far, but Saturday will provide the perfect opportunity to complete the set and achieve redemption.
As Keane pointed out, Klopp has a far greater depth to his current squad, which has been proven in the club’s trophy charge on all four fronts. There will be an added pressure on the Liverpool boss to break his FA Cup hoodoo on Saturday given such a wealth of riches at his disposal.
And should he do so, not only will he be silencing the doubters, but according to Keane, he will be giving his people the object of their desires.
