Gary Neville makes blunt admission about Liverpool FC under Jurgen Klopp
The Man United legend believes Liverpool FC's style of play will always result in the Reds conceding soft goals
Gary Neville believes Liverpool FC will continue to leak goals due to Jurgen Klopp’s brand of football.
The Reds produced an encouraging first-half performance at Anfield last weekend after Mohamed Salah’s third-minute opener put Liverpool FC in charge against Tottenham Hotspur.
The Merseyside outfit failed to add to their lead before half-time and the Reds ran out of steam in the second half as Tottenham took control of the Premier League clash.
Liverpool FC eventually settled for a 2-2 draw with Spurs in a dramatic final six minutes at Anfield, with Harry Kane scored an equaliser from the penalty spot in the fourth minute of added time.
The Reds have conceded 31 times in 26 outings in the Premier League this season, while Liverpool FC have shipped 10 goals in their last six games despite the addition of record signing Virgil van Dijk.
Liverpool FC are still waiting to win their first trophy under Klopp, although the former Borussia Dortmund coach is on course to lead the Reds to successive top-four finishes.
Former Manchester United defender Neville believes Liverpool FC will always look vulnerable under Klopp given the manager’s adventurous style of football.
“It does get crazy at both ends with this Liverpool team. It’s the heavy metal football,” Neville told his Sky Sports podcast.
“You get full throttle at both ends. Non stop, end-to-end football.
“It’s great to watch for the neutral but frustrating for the fans that they give goals away.”
Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last term to secure a return to Champions League football after a two-season absence.
The Reds will take on Portuguese giants FC Porto in their next Champions League game later this month in the round of 16.
