Robbie Savage trolls Liverpool over Jurgen Klopp appointment

Robbie Savage reacts to Liverpool's 3-0 loss to Watford on Sunday afternoon

Robbie Savage couldn’t resist a cheeky dig aimed at Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp after their 3-0 loss at Watford on Sunday.

The Reds remain five points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur after Nathan Ake’s second-minute opener and Odion Ighalo’s brace sealed three points for the hosts.

Klopp has won just three of his first nine Premier League games in charge of Liverpool after he replaced Northern Irishman Brendan Rodgers following October’s Merseyside derby.

Former Birmingham City and Leicester City midfielder Savage suggested that Liverpool should have stuck with Rodgers following their third defeat under the German coach.

Liverpool have beaten Chelsea and Manchester City on the road since Klopp took over the reins at the 18-time English champions.

The 48-year-old secured his first home win in the Premier League last month after a 1-0 victory over Swansea City.

The Reds are in ninth place and 14 points behind leaders Leicester City.
