Jurgen Klopp, the current manager of Liverpool, said that he is still in charge mostly because of the success the team had in the past rather than their performance this season. This comes on the same day when Brendan Rodgers and Graham Potter left their teams. Liverpool might have their worst league standings under Klopp now, but he has not been questioned about his position yet. He added that it would be a different story if it was his first season with them now.
Jurgen Klopp, who is 55-years-old, has been the coach of Liverpool for over 7 and a half years. During that time he has helped his team win many important awards. Unfortunately, in the last few games they have lost and are currently in 8th place in their league, which is where they were when Klopp became coach after Brendan Rodgers left. He commented that his presence here was because of what happened in the past rather than this season’s results.
The owners of Liverpool know what is happening and I’m not worried about it. My job is to make sure the team does well, not just for show or good luck. I realize that my place here is due in part to what has happened recently and that isn’t something I’m overly pleased with. We don’t know if this will turn out well or not, but time shall tell.
Liverpool have been trying to take the Premier League title away from Manchester City for the last four seasons, and they eventually won it after 30 years in 2020.
But sadly, a big 4-1 loss against Manchester City means that Liverpool are now down by 30 points behind the leaders Arsenal. With 11 more games left, Liverpool need 8 points to qualify for Champions League.
“Yes, I agree completely, but we need to get this sorted out,” he said. “We can’t keep making the same mistakes over and over again. That’s not okay.
I’m really frustrated with us that we let this happen, but now we have to find a way to solve it, and that’s what my team and I have been focusing on.”
From Klopp Jokes to 12 Managers Fired
Klopp joked at a news conference prior to Liverpool’s game against Chelsea on Monday, where he asked why was he still managing in the Premier League while other coaches have been replaced. In Germany, Bayern Munich fired Julian Nagelsmann and replaced him with former Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel.
Within a week, managers Antonio Conte (Tottenham), Rodgers (Leicester) and Potter had all been let go. When Klopp heard the news he said that it was a strange week because those three men probably didn’t reach their targets but he still thought their football managing future was bright – meaning this isn’t a bad thing for them. It’s just part of the business!
12 Premier League managers being fired this season is really bad, according to Klopp. He continued that some teams are not doing well and if they don’t meet the expectations of a team, then results like these happen. This also includes choosing who should replace Potter as Chelsea’s next manager such as Nagelsmann, Pochettino, or Zidane.
