Ed, I think that Liverpool team Klopp inherited was a shadow of the one that went close to the league title, and there was still quite an overhaul needed.
Cups are always a difficult barometer of success Mikus. League position is a much more reliable barometer. Cups can be so hit and miss
I think good cup runs or successes tell you a lot about the spirit and dynamic in the dressing room. Trophies are what players want. They breed a winning mentality. And they highlight the effect a manager is having on the players. In any case, I’m talking here about the first season or so a manager is in charge – and the signs of whether they’ve got it and can deliver on the big stage. I think a top manager has to show these signs relatively early on. Or else I don’t think they’ll make it in the longer term.
