Gary Lineker backs Jurgen Klopp to improve Liverpool after 2-0 West Ham loss
Gary Lineker runs the rule over Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp
Gary Lineker has backed Jurgen Klopp to turnaround Liverpool despite their 2-0 loss at West Ham United on Saturday afternoon.
The Reds suffered their first defeat in three Premier League games after goals from Michail Antonio and former Liverpool striker Andy Carroll sealed a comfortable win for the hosts at Upton Park.
Liverpool have lost four of their 12 Premier League games since Klopp took over the reins from Brendan Rodgers in October, leaving the Reds in ninth place.
Former Tottenham striker Lineker was initially critical of Klopp following Saturday afternoon’s dismal performance, prompting Robbie Savage to question whether the Match Of The Day host wasn’t a fan of Klopp.
However, the England legend clarified his views on the former Borussia Dortmund manager, backing Klopp to prove a success at Anfield despite an underwhelming start on Merseyside.
Nah. He'll turn it around. Not HIS team yet. https://t.co/3OzqIBLfHO
