Sitting top of the Premier League and with a sixth European crown under their arms, things are undoubtedly rosy at Liverpool these days.
The Reds have re-emerged as one of the dominant forces in European football courtesy of strong transfer business in recent years.
The current squad is one of the best Liverpool have ever had, with world-class players such as Alisson, Virgil van Dijk, Fabinho, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané to name just a handful.
Despite that, the Reds dressing room is a harmonious one, with their recent success built on the team spirit and unity that has been built in recent years.
That’s something that shines out for Liverpool coach Vitor Matos, who did not hesitate to praise Liverpool’s stars in an interview with O Jogo.
“They’re all very approachable,” he told the newspaper.
“The group is fantastic. They never complain or have moments of de-concentration.
“It’s a group that, by their relationship and the collective identity that’s been built, is strong and respectful of the individual of each member. They have a tremendous mindset.”
The designer of the unity and positivity flowing through Liverpool at present is undeniably manager Jürgen Klopp.
The German took charge of a Liverpool dressing room that was fractured and low on confidence when he arrived four years ago.
Since then he has worked hard to build the idea of the collective, something he achieved with great success at Borussia Dortmund and has now managed at Anfield.
“He’s a fantastic person, an incredible human being,” Matos added.
“His character is in all the little things, whether in training, in the game, in the lecture or in a conversation.
“He has the gift of reaching in each one’s heart and demanding the most. It is almost as if, in each training session, I receive a masterclass.
“The consistency and fluidity of the idea of the game he has, the way he seeks to be competent in defence, to move, to look for verticality or spaces, the variability in terms of finishing, this taste for attacking, attacking and counter attacking…
“This is a lot of work, and he managed to build it. He welcomed me with open arms and with great joy.”
