Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has admitted he is not concerned about his side’s recent fights, instead saying everything has been disproportionate in the media.
A four-game winless and three-game scoreless streak saw Liverpool drop to fourth in the Premier League, but they hope to get things back on track against a stubborn Burnley side on Thursday.
Liverpool’s poor form led to scrutiny of the squad’s present and future, but Klopp insisted he wasn’t humouring the drama at all because he could actually see the progress of his team,
“We all know it’s all about results, but sometimes you can see small steps in the right direction or not,” he said. (via Sky Sports News). “But it’s nothing for you (the media) because you can’t handle the little details. You do great things with it. You are not ready for this information.
“We wanted to play better but there were a lot of good signs and I can’t ignore them and I won’t.
“You can’t change your approach because everyone who has no real idea of the job is now expecting massive changes, from the wake-up call to nutrition, because we don’t have the results. . Sometimes we need to be really, not stubborn, maybe resilient, and do it.
“I understand that right now, at the press conference, people are thinking ‘Oh, he’s so entertaining’ and now they’re thinking ‘What kind of mood is he in? “,” Does he see reality? “.
It (review) is just getting earlier and earlier, but everything is fine. We are there, believe me. “
Klopp was also quoted by The Mirror as saying, “It’s not a disaster, it’s not perfect, but it’s not important. Be as good as possible. “
The boss previously revealed that center-back Joel Matip was available for selection after getting rid of his injury, but forward Diogo Jota will stay on the sidelines for a few more weeks as he accelerates his recovery from a knee injury.
Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk has also made impressive progress in his attempt to come back from a serious injury at the ACL. He is currently in Dubai and working with specialists to start kicking the ball again.
