Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp jokes he only has a beer after away wins and almost became an anti-alcoholic last season

Jurgen Klopp has brilliantly joked that Liverpool’s shocking away record last season almost saw him become an anti-alcoholic.

The Reds boss has told talkSPORT that he only allows himself to drink beer should his side emerge victorious away from Anfield.

And thankfully for the German, he can treat himself to a cheeky pint after Liverpool came back from behind to beat Wolves 3-1 at Molineux in Saturday’s early kick-off.

It’s revenge for Klopp and his squad after Wolves smashed them 3-0 in the Midlands last season.

Speaking to talkSPORT’s Sam Matterface after the match, Klopp was asked about his side’s impressive away record this season in comparison to last term.

The Merseyside outfit have picked up seven points from three away trips this campaign, while they failed to win 13 out of 19 on the road in the 2022/23 season.

Klopp said: “Much better, it feels much better, I only have a beer when we win an away game.

“And last year I almost became an anti-alcoholic! So it’s of course better.

“But we all know that everything is new. We cannot always mention last season, as bad as we was and as useful as it might be.

“But obviously we don’t think about out away record anymore, so when we came here today, and when I saw the first half, I didn’t think the same as last year.

“We have to do better, we have to create something new.”

He added: “I saw some bad things today, and a lot of good things in the second half, so I’m really happy.”

After four wins in their opening five games, Liverpool currently sit third in the Premier League table.
