Emile Heskey believes that Jurgen Klopp’s job at Liverpool FC is safe even if the Reds fail to win a trophy once again this season.

The Merseyside outfit have been earning lots of praise for their entertaining attacking performances under the German boss in recent campaigns, but they are yet to lift a major trophy since his appointment back in 2015.

Liverpool FC came close to winning some silverware last season as they reached the Champions League final but ended up losing to Real Madrid back in May.

The Reds have made a fine start to the new season, winning all five of their opening Premier League games this term, while also kicking off their Champions League campaign with a 3-2 win over PSG at Anfield on Tuesday night.

And former Liverpool FC striker Heskey feels that Klopp will be safe at Anfield even if he doesn’t win any silverware again this term.

Speaking in an interview with the Daily Star, Heskey said: “I think he will be under a little bit of pressure if he doesn’t win anything.

“At the end of the day, as a manager that’s what it boils down to, winning trophies.

“I think he’s got the backing of the club and I think the players feed into his philosophy and the way that he wants to play.

“I don’t think it necessarily means that he will be sacked or anything like that but I’m guessing that he’ll be desperate to win something.”

Liverpool FC are now preparing to switch their focus back towards Premier League affairs and their home clash against Southampton on Saturday afternoon.

The Reds are currently joint top of the Premier League table along with Chelsea FC after having won all of their games so far this term.
