In 2018, former Red Jamie Carragher discussed a concern that he originally had about Jurgen Klopp when the German first arrived at the club.

Carragher stated (5:43) that he was unsure if Klopp would sort out Liverpool’s defence.

In Klopp’s first full season (2016-17) at the club, his team conceded 42 goals in 38 Premier League games.

However, come the 2018-19 Premier League season, Liverpool conceded 22 goals in 38 matches.

Liverpool then had another terrific campaign defensively in the 2019-20 Premier League season. The Reds only conceded 33 goals in 38 matches.

The aforementioned numbers highlight that Klopp sorted the back four out.
