FSG have told Jurgen Klopp that they want him to be the man to sort the current predicament at the club, the Reds boss has revealed in his latest pre-match press conference.
Liverpool are obviously struggling for form in the league table and earned an unwanted record of five straight home league defeats earlier in the week against Chelsea.
Up next on Sunday, another home game against a west London club as Fulham make the trip to L4 and ahead of the game Klopp confirmed that FSG still have full belief in him to be the man to turn things around once more.
“We all expect more from us – to be honest. We’re pretty realistic about the things we do and I don’t feel that the team are standing alone in the fire – I’m not sure whether that’s the right saying or not! It’s just how it is in England – yes the players have interviews of course but the situation is that nobody else above me in the club speaks.”
“In Germany, typically the CEO, president or the sporting director gives an interview and faces questions such as ‘Is he the right coach still?’ and all of these kind of things – and then the manager is already half way out of the door.”
“The situation within the club, it is pretty clear. The owners want me to sort the situation and I want to sort this situation together with all of the players – that’s the plan.”
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
You’ll obviously see some calling for drastic change at the club at the moment but many are still behind Klopp and he surely deserves more credit in the bank than most managers given the work he has done for the Reds in recent years.
He’s delivered everything asked of him and more under FSG and they’re surely wise to let him try and turn things around, especially with the club’s injury record this season.
