‘Klopp is clueless’ ‘Unexpected’ – Liverpool fans react to first-XI set to face Porto in Champions League

Posted by

Jurgen Klopp kept his pre-match promise by naming a strong but changed first-XI to face Porto in the Champions League.

The Reds have little to lose with qualification through to the knockout stages though given the German’s insistence on the importance of rhythm, one can entirely understand why the manager has opted for perhaps a stronger side than some expected.

That being said, not all are pleased by the side set to host the Primeira Liga outfit this evening, with a number of fans jumping onto the Twittersphere to express their disappointment at the lack of minutes handed to Nathaniel Phillips.

The English centre-half was overlooked once more, with Ibrahima Konate favoured alongside Joel Matip in the heart of our backline.

The 24-year-old has made the bench, however, though that fact is unlikely to appease those who have questioned Klopp’s decision-making.

Whilst we can certainly sympathise with the Bolton-born defender’s plight, the reality of the situation is that, on current form, our summer signing is likewise deserving of minutes having not featured for the first-team since the 2-2 draw with Brighton.

  1. hate to say it but some of our so called fans here do not understand a bit about our squad eh and absolute clueless on the way klopp’s thinking and ethos after 6 f***ing years! (though I am far away from being know it all, at least I got a bit of gist of understanding about it)

  2. There will always be “fans” that are not pleased with what Klopp does. He is damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t. I was once told that the key to failure is to try and please everyone. Just ask OGS. YNWA Mr. Klopp!!!!
