“Criticism of Klopp grows on me
Jürgen Klopp is getting more and more headwind at Liverpool FC.After the League Cup, press and experts alike will find clear words for the Reds’ performance.
After leaving Liverpool FC in the English League Cup, Jürgen Klopp was completely satisfied:”It makes me sick how we score our goals.I feel really bad right now.”
0:2 was the final score in the third round against former English champion Leicester City.The Reds are now four straight games without a win, with Liverpool conceding ten goals in that time.
The headwind for Klopp is growing in the northwest of England.Liverpool Echo etched:”Welcome to the club, Jürgen.The recurring defensive blunders are “depressingly familiar” for the fans, Liverpool has to grasp his own nose.
Instead of investing in an outstanding defensive man this summer, Klopp brought in expensive offensive players such as Mohamed Salah and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.The latter disappointed completely at his debut in Leicester and had to listen to mockery in the social media.
Klopp had opted for Virgil van Dijk early in the summer break, but Southampton did not release the centre-back.Klopp remained stubborn and relied on the proven forces in the defence – a misjudgement.
Former international Alan Shearer put his finger in the wound after the cup-off.
“Jürgen Klopp is really brilliant when it comes to public relations.If you listen to him, you think that Liverpool has developed quite positively since his arrival,”he first praised and then said of the facts:”The truth is that Liverpool is no different under Klopp than under Brendan Rodgers”.
In fact, Klopp’s predecessor came up with an almost identical point intersection (1.77 vs. 1.80) like Klopp.
Shearer, who gives the Reds “no chance” in the championship fight, especially criticized the training of the former BVB coach,”I wonder what they do in the training sessions when they produce the same mistakes week after week.What I did against Burnley at the weekend (1:1, Noted.Red.) was ridiculous.”
The Premier League will return to Leicester on Saturday, followed by two tough away games with Spartak Moscow (Champions League) and Newcastle United (Premier League).If Klopp doesn’t bring his defensive side up to operating temperature by then, a stormy autumn threatens him.
