Klopp satisfied with Liverpool’s work against Watford

Jurgen Klopp was pretty satisfied with his team’s work in the Premiership this weekend as they stream-rolled over Watford to further strengthen their position at no. 2 in the standings. The Reds are just a couple of points behind the table leaders Manchester City who have got 35 points in 13 matches.

According to Klopp, what stood out for him in his team’s performance against Watford was how clinical a performance that was. In the past, there have been many occasions where the Reds have started brilliantly, have a brilliant 30-40 minutes, take a lead and then get a bit complacent and let the guard down and allow the other team to make a comeback through a leveler or a couple of goals. That’s something which was very frustrating from a manager’s perspective.

Brendan Rodgers Reveals the Tough Nature of the Liverpool Job

Manager Brendan Rodgers has claimed that he was delighted to take a break after being sacked by Liverpool midway through 2015.

He was able to lead the club to within two points of the Premier league title only in the 2014 season. However, he was out of the job just 17 months later. Brendan Rodgers left Liverpool and then spent time off the game before returning with Celtic in the summer of 2016. Since his return, he has been able to reveal his stock within the game after managing to achieve some incredible success with Celtic.

The northern Irishman decided to take the break as it was too draining to be in charge of Liverpool. As one of the top clubs in England, there is a huge amount of attention on Liverpool and it appears to have been one of the primary reasons behind Rodgers drained by the job. At Celtic, Rodgers has had a much easier time after he won the title in relative comfort. The biggest challenge for the manager would be to go further in the Champions League than the group stages of the competition. Celtic are no longer considered as one of the top dogs in European football but Rodgers has done a stellar job to revive the club’s form in Europe. (more…)

Southampton has ruled out any plans or interests of other clubs in purchasing any of their key players, and is affirming that none of their players would leave the club.

Liverpool and Chelsea were formerly interested in acquiring Virgil van Dijk but Southampton has ruled out his departure from the club and is confident that he would stay with them into the new season.

Executive director of the south coast club, Les Reed made this revelation recently especially concerning van Dijk who since the turn of the year, has been consistently linked with a move away from the club.

Earlier this month, van Dijk was in the centre of a controversial pursuit by Liverpool. He had met with the manager of the Anfield club side, Jürgen Klopp to hold discussions in lieu a prospective transfer.

This was done without any official approach to Southampton by Liverpool for the services of the player.

Southampton felt aggrieved and consequently took it up filing a complaint to the Premier League. Thus Liverpool was forced to apologize for “any misunderstanding” before withdrawing their interest from the player. (more…)

Jurgen Klopp comments on Surface of game against the Saints

Jurgen Klopp reckons that the nature of the surface on which yesterday’s game against the Saints was played was not ideal for his team and it’s because of its dryness that his boys failed to make the impact that they could have.

Klopp, however, didn’t point his finger on anyone for that condition of the ground. He revealed that there was as much water put on the ground as required, but, all the moisture was taken away by the breeze blowing across and just a few minutes into the match, the surface turned absolutely dry.

Stressing on the importance of home matches, Klopp said that for any team to have a great season, they have to make sure that they don’t give away too many points to the opposition on their home turf and that was the case with Liverpool in the past. They were quite a force whenever they used to play at Anfield, but, of late, some of the matches have ended with undesirable results. (more…)

Erstwhile Premier League bad boy, Joey Barton who made a surprise return to the league last week announced his second coming at Burnley with a match-winning goal that sparked pandemonium.

Being introduced into the game in the 73rd minute after both sides could not settle the fight. His first touch prevented Shane Long from opening the scoring for Southampton, an inconsequential second touch followed and then came a 25- yard free-kick with his third touch, this became the defining moment of game.

Burnley may sit 10th place yet their travails away from home allow for reservations over their continuity in the league to linger. This therefore stressed the significance of Joey Barton’s addition to a wage bill of around £40 million, as comparable as a snowball in the Alps in top flight terms. (more…)
