Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool’s problems are an exaggeration

November 9, 2017

Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp has insisted that the club’s problems are being exaggerated following their recent string of poor results.


The Reds have had a poor September which started with a 5-0 thumping at the hands of Manchester City. The Reds followed to draw their next two games against Sevilla (Champions League) and Burnley before suffering a surprise exit in the League Cup to Leicester City.

Speaking at his news conference, Klopp admitted that the club’s concerns are not as bad as they are being interpreted, he said: “It sounds like we have no points and are completely the worst team in the league. Yes we have problems that is why we ‘only’ have eight points and not 15. We can make it more serious than it is or we can take it like it is. I understand 100 per cent (why) we sit here and talk about the things that have happened.We have work to do but that would be the same if we had 15 points, only it would feel different but it would be the same.” Read More

Injury-plagued striker determined to prove his worth to Liverpool

October 22, 2017

England international Danny Ings has effectively ruled out a winter exit from Liverpool by suggesting that he still has a ‘bit part to play’ for the club.


The 25-year-old is currently looking to regain his match fitness after enduring a succession of long-term knee injuries.

Ings made his first Liverpool appearance in nearly a year in the 2-0 League Cup defeat to Leicester City in September, but he has yet to make a Premier League comeback under Jurgen Klopp. Speaking to The Times, the marksman believes he still has the mind-set to play for the Reds, thereby ruling out a potential move elsewhere.

He said: “Everywhere I have been, I have always found a way to make it happen. I have been in a lot of tough situations at previous clubs where it has been hard to break in. People from the outside looking in will probably have the assumption, ‘Oh, he’s the forgotten man’ but it has not crossed my mind at all. I still believe in myself. I still believe I can play in this team. I still feel like I have a big part to play in this football club.” Read More

Molby: Liverpool wrong to focus on van Dijk

September 20, 2017

Liverpool legend Jan Molby has insisted that the Reds should have looked at other options after they failed to negotiate a deal for Southampton’s Virgil van Dijk. The Netherlands international had been Liverpool’s prime target for the summer transfer window with Jurgen Klopp having seen him as the perfect fit for his backline.

However, the Reds backed off from lodging an offer for his services after the Saints complained to the Premier League over an illegal approach from the Merseyside outfit. As a result, the Reds failed to recruit a new centre-back to their ranks, and Molby feels the club were wrong to focus on signing the Dutch footballer. Read More

Target Should be Top Four, not the Title

August 11, 2017

Liverpool enjoyed a successful 2016-17 Premier League campaign. The Reds were in the title race for around half the season and eventually finished fourth. With Arsenal and Manchester United ending up below them in the standings, the Anfield faithful must have been satisfied with how last season eventually panned out. Jurgen Klopp’s side played good attacking football, and there were a lot of positives.

With the 2017-18 Premier League campaign getting underway this week, Liverpool fans will be hoping for yet another exciting and successful season. The Reds have been quite active in the summer transfer window and have signed three players so far, while they have not lost anyone they could not live without. Andre Wisdom was away on loan at RB Salzburg last season, while Kevin Stewart failed to make an impact at Anfield and Lucas Leiva was able to make only 12 starts in the Premier League in 2016-17.

Klopp: Philippe Coutinho won’t be sold

August 4, 2017

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has iterated that Philippe Coutinho will not be sold to Barcelona during this summer’s transfer window.


The Brazil international has been repeatedly linked with a move to the Camp Nou with compatriot Neymar also publicly stating that he would welcome the attacker to Catalunya.

Despite this, Klopp has continuously suggested that the Reds are not keen on selling Coutinho whilst insisting that it is a decision which is accepted between him and the board, he declared: “If I say he is not for selling, he is not for selling. There is nothing else to say. It’s a club decision, it’s my decision. That’s how it is. I can say 20 times, he is not for sale. If you ask the other question the other way and I say, there has been no assurance, you make the story the other way. There is no story for me. Whatever happens from their side, I say he is not for sale. The answer is — not for sale.” Read More

Philippe Coutinho describes speculation linking him to Barcelona as ‘complicated’

June 23, 2017

Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho has refused to rule out a summer move from Anfield by describing that the speculation linking him with Barcelona as complicated.


The Brazil international contributed 13 goals and seven assists during the previous campaign as the Reds secured a top-four finish in the Premier League. As a result, Jurgen Klopp’s side will be plying their trade in next season’s Champions League which would allow them to attract some of the best talents from across the world.

Coutinho inked a fresh five-year contract with the Reds in January in order to quell any speculation over his future, and the questions still linger over where his commitment would lie at the start of next season. Former Reds striker Luis Suarez had a hidden release clause which was triggered to lure him to Barcelona, but the club are now in a stronger position with Coutinho after they eliminated the buy-out clause option.

LIVERPOOL TO BATTLE BARCA AND ARSENAL FOR REUS

June 2, 2017

Liverpool would have to battle fellow Premier League club Arsenal and Spanish giant Barcelona for the signature of Marco Reus.


The 27-year old has suffered a spate of injuries over recent seasons. His employers Borussia Dortmund are willing to listen to offers from £67 million, according to reports.

Spanish source MundoDeportivo claims Barca want the talented playmaker to join them this summer. They would have to fend off interests from three English clubs for him though. Transfer Market Web says Manchester City are also in the mix for the German.

Borussia Dortmund have reportedly removed the previous £21 million release clause in the player’s contract in 2015 so they would earn big if clubs want to sign him now.

Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp worked with the player while he was at Borussia. Read More

May 25, 2017

Liverpool are not worried about the possibility of Barcelona coming in with an offer for Philippe Coutinho in the summer.

Reports in Spain have claimed that informal talks between Liverpool and Barcelona have taken place with a view of completing the £ 76 million transfer in the summer. Not too long ago, Barcelona signed Luis Suarez from Liverpool for a similar fee; the Uruguayan has now turned into one of the biggest success stories of recent years.

The transfer rumours surroundingCoutinho comes at a worst possible time for Liverpool, who have been trying to qualify for the Champions League next season. Jurgen Klopp says that the club are not worried about any transfer rumours since the players signed a new contract only in January. Importantly, this new contract does not figure any release clause that would enable Barcelona to do away with any negotiations. Read More

Liverpool Must Use a Top-Four Finish as a Springboard to Success

May 8, 2017

The Reds’ victory at Watford gives them a significant advantage over the stuttering Manchester duo in the quest for a place in the Premier League top four.

Emre Can’s superb finish is quite rightly being touted as one of the goals of the season but the German’s acrobatics shouldn’t deflect the attention away from a hugely important three points for his side.

Liverpool have been far from consistent this campaign and have regularly slipped up against sides in the bottom half of table, much to the chagrin of Reds fans. Read More

Liverpool Have Not Thrown Away Top Four Place, says Jurgen Klopp

May 4, 2017

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says that the club have not thrown away a top four place after the loss against Crystal Palace.


The club came into the game on the back of a good run of form in recent weeks. However, Crystal Palace managed to secure a 2-1 win at Anfield. Even though Philippe Coutinho opened the scoring after just 24 minutes, Crystal Palace managed to pull back level in the 42nd minute through former Red Christian Benteke. The Belgian once again haunted the club with a second goal in the 74th minute, and Liverpool were unable to recover from these two setbacks.

This was the first defeat for the club since the end of February when they lost to Leicester City. They have been able to go on a run of five wins and two draws in the last seven games. Yet, this defeat is much more damaging to the club’s hopes of finishing in the top four, as it has allowed Manchester United with a real opportunity to plug the gap with their two games in hand. United are only three points behind. Read More
