So, Jurgen Klopp has been in charge of Liverpool for one whole year now.

On his first anniversary at Anfield, everyone is celebrating his greatest moments since he was appointed as Brendan Rodgers’ successor last year.

Their dramatic 4-3 victory over Borussia Dortmund, their 4-0 demolition of Everton in the Merseyside derby and knocking out rivals Manchester United in the Europa League are all highs during the German’s 365 days in charge.

But there’s certainly been some lows for Klopp and Liverpool over the past year.

The club lost in the Capital One Cup final to Manchester City on penalties before being beaten by Sevilla in the Europa League final in May. Also, he could only guide his side to an eighth-placed finish last season after disappointing losses to the likes of Crystal Palace, Watford and Newcastle.

However, this season - after Klopp had his first pre-season with the club - Liverpool look a real force. After an impressive start, many people genuinely believe that they’re good enough to win the title.

However, Klopp has admitted that his worst moment as a Liverpool has actually come from this campaign. In fact, he thinks it was even worse than losing both cup finals last season.

“Burnley,” he said simply when asked of his worst moment during his time as Liverpool manager.

Of course, Klopp is talking about his side’s 2-0 loss at Turf Moor on the second weekend of the season.

After beating Arsenal 4-3 on the opening weekend, Liverpool were looking for a repeat performance against the Premier League new boys. But they were comfortably beaten thanks to goals from Sam Vokes and Andre Gray.

Liverpool have since made up for that loss with 13 points from the five Premier League matches that have followed but you can tell Klopp and his players are still smarting from that defeat.
