Nobody targets one of Liverpool’s players as a supposed weak link in the side. Not on Jurgen Klopp’s watch.
We have to say, though. We do love Klopp looking forward to a chance for his side to get some revenge.
It is fair to say that the German hasn’t taken too well to Bournemouth defender Steve Cook explaining how his side turned a focus towards goalkeeper Loris Karius as one of our weaknesses.
Klopp told the Liverpool Echo: “I heard about (what Cook said). Actually, that’s one of the worst things I ever heard in life.”
“That the guy who won the game – I don’t know who it was – thinks he needs to say something like this after the game.”
“I am really looking forward to playing Bournemouth again because of this. Win the game, have respect for the player of the other team. I thought ‘really, what did he say?’ I don’t care what he thought, I don’t care what anyone said before the game. If they thought before the game that Loris Karius is a weakness then I don’t know which game they were looking at.”
Well said. The return fixture against Bournemouth promises to be a good one.
Karius has, albeit, endured a challenging start to life at Liverpool but he has by no means been unconvincing, regardless of what pundits have been saying.
Klopp obviously saw something good in the 23-year-old and there is a reason why he brought him to the club. Nerves appear to have been the issue but we are confident that the former Mainz man will eventually settle down and showcase the talent Klopp clearly knows he possesses.
Let’s show him out support, Reds.
