Jurgen Klopp still very much believes, as we do, that he’s the best man for the job.
For perhaps the first time in his two years at the club, the German is coming under genuine criticism from fans, a very small number of which are actively discussing replacing him.
Liverpool are out of the League Cup and sit ninth in the table following a very, very frustrating start to the campaign.
Klopp though has claimed he doesn’t read criticism or listen to it from pundits and has assured everybody that his job is 100% safe.
“I will be here, 100 per cent. I’m convinced I’ll be here when they come through,” Klopp told his pre-match press conference.
“I got so many messages this week saying ‘don’t listen to the pundits’. I had no idea what was said, but I can imagine.
“People think maybe I’m not the right one any more and stuff like this. Inside [the club] nobody thinks it. Not from the owners and not from me. OK, we can try again like two years ago and get a new manager, but the problems are always the same.
“I know I am 100 per cent responsible for all this. People think that one day you lost a half a brain or whatever. I don’t think I am the problem.
“We’ve got a lot of games to come and if we can do what we’re able to then it can be a wonderful season, which nobody thinks about in this moment.”
Even if Liverpool lost our next three games, Klopp wouldn’t get the boot – and we like this.
Liverpool need stability, and as one of our guest writers claimed yesterday, Klopp is our only ‘world-class’ signing since Fernando Torres.
Luis Suarez and Coutinho elevated themselves to that standard while at the club, but Klopp was winning titles and reaching Champions League Finals before he took over.
He is, undoubtably, the right man for the job.
