​Klopp doesn’t fear for Liverpool job after Tuchel sacking: But who knows?
​Klopp doesn’t fear for Liverpool job after Tuchel sacking: But who knows?

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says he is not worried about his future at the club.

The German coach was speaking on the same day his countryman was sacked by Chelsea for underperformance.

While Klopp has a lot of credit in the bank at Liverpool, their performances this season have fallen off a cliff from the previous campaign.

The Reds were battered 4-1 away from home by Napoli in the Champions League group stages on Wednesday.

Speaking post-game, he stated on his own job after Tuchel’s firing: “Not really, but who knows?

“The difference is, obviously, there are different kinds of owners. Our owners are rather calm and expect from me to sort the situation and not thinking that somebody else should sort it.

“That’s how they always saw it, on the day that they change their thoughts they might tell me.”

On the game, he added: “I think the problems we had tonight were obvious. Number one, Napoli played a really good game and we played a really bad game. Why did we play a bad game? We cannot ignore the start and how it happened, how it started with the penalty and then shortly after that another penalty.

“In this atmosphere, that’s not easy, but our problems obviously were that we just didn’t play good enough. That means in our specific case we were never compact. I can’t remember a situation where we were compact. We had for 60 minutes not one counter-pressing situation in a game where we lost a lot of balls, just because we were far away.

“That means we were too wide in possession, we were not pushing up with the last line, the midfield was not connected, so these are the football things and they are obvious. The questions now, because I know the boys want – they want to win football games – and the questions why they don’t do, that’s obviously my job to figure that out.

“It is not the first time that we don’t play completely well, I know that, and there are some reasons which we know, but I really think with all the things that happened we should have played a much better game tonight – and we didn’t.

“Again, it is my responsibility – it’s just the problem is since the game finished I spoke to media and I didn’t have time to think or whatever. I really think it makes sense to think a second longer, watch the game back, try to understand and then have the right message for the boys because that’s the most important thing.”
