Report: Liverpool insiders think they know why Klopp is failing so far this season
Liverpool haven’t had the start they wanted and there’s even been some bizarre discussion in the media about if the club would even sack Jurgen Klopp.
The German boss insisted in midweek he didn’t fear for his job, despite seeing his side hammered by Napoli and compounding a miserable opening few weeks to the Premier League season too. Of course, the notion that Liverpool would consider giving Klopp the sack is obscene. If any manager has some credit in the bank at a club, it’s Klopp.
Instead of suggesting Mane’s sale represents an issue, The Times says how some inside Anfield simply feel this is a Liverpool team who are ‘knackered’. A total of 63 games last season in addition to a quick turnaround in the summer, as well as the Euros before last season started, has got some believing that Klopp’s troops are simply tired.
That, coupled with the expectations from Jurgen Klopp are believed to be contributing factors in the club’s issues.
TBR’s View: Liverpool Always Going To Have A Blip
It’s so easy to jump on and criticise teams like Liverpool but when you take a step back, there was always going to be a dip of some sorts at some point.
The Reds – like Man City – have been relentless over a three to four year period. Title challenges, Champions League finals, cup runs, the lot. Liverpool have dipped their toes in everything and with that, there was always going to be a slow down.
Mane’s loss is also not helping but at the end of the day, teams often run in cycles and maybe, just maybe, Liverpool are having a bit of a blip.
