Jurgen Klopp 'thankful' for Liverpool's front 3
When Jurgen Klopp arrived back in 2015, nobody would've foreseen what has happened since. We'd hoped, sure, but not even he could've predicted the journey we've been on.
Fast forward to today and the current European Champions and Premier League runners-up are in a privileged position of having perhaps the best front three in Europe, who have been absolutely crucial to the last 3 seasons.
To hear Jurgen Klopp talk about it, you'd think they just landed in his lap. But the German took three good players and made them into world class players.
Speaking to Liverpoolfc.com, he said: "A lot of times in my life I had sensational players always [but] not world-class players.
"Now, thank God I have them and they make the difference. We don't have to talk about that.
"Sadio Mane, Bobby Firmino, Mo Salah – these guys in the last situation are really outstanding.
"They were a constant threat, however tired they are. That's brilliant and, of course, made the difference. We don't have to talk about that."
Since they all arrived at the club, the trio have scored or assisted 303 goals between then , with the majority of those coming in the past 3 seasons.
