Jurgen Klopp admits he ‘feels really bad’ about Liverpool FC slump
Jurgen Klopp admits that he is not happy about his Liverpool FC side's poor defensive performances this season
Jurgen Klopp has admitted that he is concerned about Liverpool’s slump in form in recent weeks after they were dumped out of the League Cup by Leicester City on Tuesday night.
The Reds slumped to a disappointing defeat against the Foxes as their poor run of recent form continued.
Liverpool have not won a game since their 4-0 thrashing of Arsenal before the international break and have dropped points in their last two Premier League outings.
And the Liverpool manager has admitted that his side’s poor form in defence is a big cause for concern to him and his coaching staff.
Klopp told his post-match news conference after Tuesday night’s game: “I feel really bad in the moment about this [conceding so many goals], of course it’s not about not knowing, it’s about doing it in that moment – that’s hard in the moment, it feels really hard in this moment to go out because of this [and] after that performance in the first half.
“But we have, we have to play like this, we are able – we made seven or eight chances and we still can play football, that’s cool, good, good, good, but as long as you concede goals like this it makes life really difficult.”
The Reds will aiming to get back to winning ways when they take on Leicester City once again, this time in the Premier League, at the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
And Klopp added: “Will I still feel sick when I come back here on Saturday?
“I lost more games in my life unfortunately and believe me or not, tomorrow morning I am fine. Yes, we will come back and I will be before the game for sure in a better shape than right now.”
Liverpool are aiming to improve on their fourth placed finish in the Premier League in what was Klopp’s first full campaign in charge at Anfield last term.
The Merseyside outfit kicked off their Champions League group stage campaign last week with a 2-2 draw against Sevilla in their opener at Anfield.
