Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp’s latest comments suggest that he may have been rattled by his critics, the German has been blasted for failing to win a trophy with the Reds.
Looking ahead to Liverpool’s Premier League clash against Fulham tomorrow, Klopp spoke about how ‘little he was interested’ in the opinions of critics that have slammed him for failing to win a trophy during his time in Merseyside.
The pressure is certainly on for Klopp to deliver a piece of silverware with the Red, since the German’s appointment in October 2015 – Liverpool have lost three finals; the League Cup and Europa League in 2015/16 and most recently the Champions League final last season.
Here’s what Klopp had to say at his press conference:
“You can’t imagine how (little) I’m interested in that. I never thought about myself in that (way),”
“My job is to do everything I can to help the team that we can be as successful as possible. I’m not searching to be remembered in 50 years or whatever people speak about me.
“I am not interested in who judges me. God judges me one day and that is the only thing I am interested in. What other people say about me I couldn’t be less interested.”
While his ‘only God can judge me’ stance is quite noble – it may not be what Liverpool fans want to hear from their manager.
Liverpool face-off against relegation candidates Fulham tomorrow afternoon, even following their match in midweek – the Reds will be expected to blow away the Cottagers with ease.
A win for Liverpool tomorrow would put the pressure on their title rivals Manchester City – they’re in action in the FA Cup Quarter-Finals today meaning Liverpool will go top with a win against Fulham and City will have all eyes on them in their game in had against Manchester United.
