While the Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp. is not considering the prospect of failing to qualify for Europe’s elite competition this term, he also insists that Liverpool will not return to the wilderness years of the early part of the last decade.
After spending eight of 10 seasons in the Champions League from the 2001-02 season, they spent six campaigns from 2010-11 either in the Europa League or out of Europe completely.
Having won the tournament for a sixth time in 2019, Liverpool’s current run of four successive seasons is under threat after they slipped off the pace in the race for the top four. Liverpool do, however, hold a 2-0 lead heading into their last-16 second-leg tie against RB Leipzig next week.
