Jurgen Klopp is currently having the worst season in three years. For the first time since he became the football manager of Liverpool in 2015, he has never been defeated in three successive Premier League games.
Unfortunately for Klopp, his ordeal started on February 3, 2021, when Brighton visited Liverpool and slammed the club with a 1-0 defeat at Anfield Stadium. After the league game, Liverpool met with Manchester City at the Anfield Stadium and were beaten 4-1 at home on February 7.
When the fans of Liverpool thought the club had seen the worst, Jurgen Klopp and his boys were defeated for the third time in a row. This time around, the defeat came in the hands of Leicester City on February 13. The 3-1 defeat in the hands of Leicester came days after the death of Jurgen Klopp’s mother, Elisabeth, was announced.
Recall that Jurgen Klopp could not attend his mother’s funeral due to the coronavirus restriction in his home country, Germany.
Due to all the calamities confronting Jurgen Klopp, a banner was placed at Liverpool’s Anfield Stadium showing support to the German tactician. However, Klopp insisted that he does not need any form of support outside his team.
Jurgen Klopp also insisted that he has not thought of resigning as the manager of Liverpool, saying he does not need a break.
“The banner is nice but not necessary. I don’t feel I need special support at the moment,” Klopp said.
“The last thing I want to do is talk about private things in a news conference but, privately, we had a tough time. We always deal with it as a family, 100%…
“Nobody has to worry about me. I might not look like this because the weather is not cool, the beard gets more and more grey and I don’t sleep a lot but I’m full of energy. The situation is a challenge.
“I don’t want to have the situation but I see it as an interesting challenge. We will sort it.
“It could be tricky but we are sorting it by playing football, by sticking even more together, fighting with all you have, and learning more than you can in each season you have played before. That is the plan we have.
“It’s a massive challenge, I’m ready and boys are ready and we give our absolutely everything to sort it.
“Thanks for all the support. I’m very grateful but they can think about other things because nobody has to worry about me.”
Jurgen Klopp is expected to lead Liverpool to face RB Leipzig in the first league of the UEFA Champions League round of 16. The match is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, February 16, at 21:00.
