Former Premier League star throws his weight in behind Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp
Kieran Gibbs retains belief in Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp
Jurgen Klopp is undoubtedly one of the greatest managers in the history of Liverpool Football Club. The German tactician has won every major trophy with the Reds, including the Premier League, Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup.
However, this season has been a challenging one for Klopp and his team. The 2020 Premier League champions have struggled to replicate their form from the previous few campaigns and currently find themselves outside of the top four in the league table.
Despite the difficulties faced by Liverpool this season, it’s important to remember that Klopp has done a remarkable job since taking over as manager in 2015. He inherited a team that was struggling and transformed them into one of the most feared sides in Europe. Former Arsenal left-back Kieran Gibbs talked about the same and backed the German.
Klopp’s style of play is based on high-intensity pressing and quick transitions, which require a lot of physical and mental energy from his players. This style has worked wonders for Liverpool in recent years, but it’s also incredibly demanding and can lead to fatigue and injuries.
Speaking of that, here is Gibbs told The 2 Robbies podcast via Liverpool Echo on Klopp’s current situation at the Reds:
“I always find it funny when people ask for Klopp’s head. It baffles me a little bit,”
“But that’s kind of the world we live in now so it’s come to be expected.
“But they’ve competed heavily for every competition for the last five years. Three Champions League finals I think it is, a Prem, title challenge every year for that, there’s been a World Cup in the mix, a lot of players went to that. Klopp’s style of play is so intense that it’s not surprising that they’re having a down year.”
Jurgen is a Red
Despite these challenges, Klopp has remained positive and focused on finding solutions to the team’s problems. He has continued to back his players and has shown faith in the squad’s depth, even when results have not gone their way.
It’s clear that Klopp is the right man for the job at Liverpool, and the club’s owners recognize his importance to the team. He has brought a winning mentality to the club and has instilled a sense of unity and purpose among the players.
While this season may not be going as well as previous ones, it’s important to remember that Klopp has already achieved so much with Liverpool. He has brought the club back to the pinnacle of European football and has given fans memories that will last a lifetime.
