KLOPP BACKS HIS PLAYERS IN RECENT PRESS-CONFERENCE

“I don’t think they are [at their] best in the moment and do I like that? No. But I still know how good they are and how good they can be,
“But football, and life, is not like this. We work every day and it’s not because of him, him, him.
“So, these things happen because we cannot help ourselves in these moments. How can you get in a situation… seven or eight players had nothing to do with the first goal, the other seven [or] eight players had nothing to do with the second goal – but everybody is influenced by it.
“So, these are the situations we have to go through. I don’t lose confidence in the boys or whatever, but I see where we have to improve. That’s what we are working on but again it makes this so typical to the situation.”
Liverpool’s next game is against Merseyside Rivals Everton, who won their last game against Table Topper Arsenal on February 13th.
Klopp needs to wind up his mess quickly but another defeat at Anfield against Everton can make the board rethink about their decision.
