While coaches are being sacked one after another due to poor performance in the English Premier League (EPL), Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp (55) is also sitting on a ‘thorny cushion’.
In the midst of all this, he said he was still Liverpool manager “because of the past” and not the team’s current form.
According to BBC Sport, as Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers and Chelsea manager Graham Porter were sacked on the 2nd (local time), 12 EPL managers have packed their bags this season.
Leicester City is 19th with 25 points from 7 wins, 4 draws and 17 losses this season, while Chelsea are 11th with 38 points from 10 wins, 8 draws and 10 losses. 토토사이트
Liverpool are in 8th place in the league with 12 wins, 6 draws and 9 losses and 42 points, and are in danger of making their worst performance under Klopp’s management.
“It will be a little different in the first season,” Klopp said. He knows the fact that I’m sitting here because of my past. It’s not because of what we’ve done this season.”
During his seven-and-a-half-year stint at Anfield, he helped the team win major club football honors, becoming the Premier League’s longest-serving manager.
However, Liverpool have been struggling lately, with three defeats in the EPL and other matches. Like the last 2015-2016 season, it is 8th in the league.
“We have smart owners and they know the situation,” Klopp said. (I) don’t have to be afraid I know I’m still here because of what happened over the past few years.”
Coach Klopp put the team to the top of the EPL after 30 years in the 2019-2020 season. This season, they are behind 1st place Arsenal (23 wins, 3 draws, 3 losses, 72 points) by 30 points. You never know when the manager will be fired.
