Klopp is going nowhere

Rumours that Jurgen Klopp had walked out of the club after Liverpool’s defeat at Leicester are fictional and should be ignored by anyone with common sense.

Three consecutive defeats have virtually put paid to any hopes of retaining the Premier League title as the Reds struggle with poor form, lack of confidence and an injury list as long as your arm.

The manager lost his mother to coronavirus last month and was unable to attend her funeral in Germany.

However, suggesting he is leaving Liverpool is ridiculous and insensitive at an emotional time in his personal life.

Rather than dwell on the last few results, focus on the amazing journey Klopp has led us on in the last few seasons and all the silverware we have won along the way.

It was only eight months ago we were all singing his praises as Jordan Henderson lifted the Premier League trophy on an empty Kop. A 30-year wait for the league was over, but expectations that we would go on to win it every season after that are ludicrous.

Back the manager or seek your immediate glory elsewhere. That is not the Liverpool Way.
