Following the Premier League draw at Stamford Bridge, Jurgen Klopp made a claim about his future at Anfield
Following Liverpool’s 0-0 draw with Chelsea, Jurgen Klopp made a statement about his future as manager.
On Tuesday night, the Reds were held to a goalless draw in the Premier League. With a game in hand, Liverpool is now in eighth place in the table, seven points behind the top four.
Klopp made six changes to his Liverpool team, which was defeated by Manchester City over the weekend. Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk, and Trent Alexander-Arnold all left the squad.
Liverpool now has ten Premier League games left this season to try to qualify for Europe. The Reds have only 43 points after 28 games, which is 23 points less than they had after the same number of games last season.
Following the draw with Chelsea, Klopp was asked if he had ever had a campaign like this before in his career. “No, thank God,” Klopp told the BBC, according to The Mirror. I wouldn’t be Liverpool manager if I had a couple of these seasons.
“We’ve got to get through it. That’s just how life is. To change your fortunes, you must fight.”
“Both teams played last year in two finals, two of the best 0-0s I’ve ever seen,” Klopp added. Today’s match featured two teams that were low on confidence but fiercely competitive. We’re fine with a point, and there’s a lot of good stuff. We put up a good fight. We must persevere.
“At first, we struggled with the last line, but we changed it three times.” The balls in the back were tricky, but we recovered well. We progressed in the game.
“The midfield was extremely well-connected.” We had our chances right away. It was not the work of a speculator. It was a first step. That is what we must do: take steps. Smaller steps are sometimes required.
“I didn’t expect a team with six different players to play the best game of the season.” The boys who came in took advantage of their opportunity and demonstrated that they were prepared.
“We can’t talk about our goals if we don’t get points.” We will not give up; instead, we will fight. We can talk all we want, but we must also demonstrate. Tonight, we saw a step in the right direction. Some people needed a break.”
