Liverpool have now gone four Premier League games without a win after a humiliating defeat to Wolves on Saturday, with Jurgen Klopp unable to find solutions to his team’s difficulties
Despite the club’s winless run in the Premier League, Liverpool’s board has reportedly given ailing manager Jurgen Klopp their complete support.
The Reds have gone four games without a win in the Premier League, leaving them 11 points out of the Champions League places. Their most recent low point was a humiliating defeat at the hands of Wolves on Saturday.
Klopp’s team had fallen down twice in the first 12 minutes and were unable to recover despite dominating the second half. The home fans at Molineux even yelled, “You’re getting sacked in the morning!” at the German.
According to The Athletic, the Liverpool board has “no chance” of giving Klopp his P45. Instead, he is claimed to have the ‘full support’ of the club’s ownership, Fenway Sports Group.
His efforts over the last seven years, which includes a Premier League title win, is reported to have earned him enough credit to lead a rebuilding effort during the summer transfer window.
During Saturday’s defeat, Klopp was visibly upset with his squad, which came after an own-goal from Joel Matip, a strike from Craig Dawson, and Ruben Neves’ late game-winner.
After the devastating defeat, the German stated that he had complete faith in his forces’ ability to rebound. However, he conceded that they were having a rough time, with their top four hopes fading.
“I don’t think they’re [at their] finest right now, and do I like it? No. But I still know how terrific they are and how fantastic they have the potential to be. But football, and life in general, are not like this. Every day, we labor, and it’s not due of him, him, him “He stated.
“So these things occur because we are unable to control ourselves in certain situations. How did you end up in this circumstance… Seven or eight players had nothing to do with the first goal, and the remaining seven [or] eight players had nothing to do with the second goal – yet it has an impact on everyone.
“So these are the circumstances we must face. I’m not losing faith in the boys or anything, but I can see where we need to improve. That’s what we’re working on, but it’s so typical of the scenario.
“The beginning is bad, then it’s normal, then it’s fantastic, but I get that without finishing. We would have liked to see the eventual result if we had played the entire game like the [first] 30 minutes of the second half at 0-0. But, for the time being, it’s always if, if, if. I can’t hear it anymore, yet the condition remains.”
In a week’s time, Liverpool will face a difficult test in the form of a Merseyside Derby against Everton. The Toffees upset league leaders Arsenal on Saturday, with Sean Dyche hoping to keep his team out of relegation trouble.
