Jurgen Klopp opens up on topsy-turvy season ahead of Real Madrid clash



Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp opens up on inconsistent season ahead of Real Madrid clash

Liverpool Football Club have had an inconsistent season so far, with performances that have left many fans and even Jurgen Klopp scratching their heads. The team has stood plagued by injuries, and this has undoubtedly affected their ability to perform at their best.

The manager has been vocal about the team’s struggles, and he has acknowledged that this may not be the season where Liverpool has the best chance of winning. Following a 2-5 loss to Real Madrid in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 fixture, the Reds certainly have a huge issue.

Furthermore, the Reds won 7-0 against Manchester United in the league only to go on and lose their next league game against Bournemouth 1-0. This is extremely frustrating for the team and fans alike and there needs to be some chopping and changing at the club.

Speaking ahead of the second leg of the UCL tie vs Madrid, here is what Klopp had to say via the club’s official website on the inconsistencies on show from Liverpool this season:

“I am not sure it is the season where we have the best chance, but let me say if we can surprise ourselves in a negative way then we should be able to surprise ourselves in a positive way as well. If it is going up and down then tomorrow will be up again, but we will see. It is clear, we are not here and telling Madrid, ‘Be careful, we are coming…’ That’s not the situation we are in. We are here to try to win the game – and to win it, we have to play extremely good because there is no other chance.”

“If we play a normal game or an OK game or a good game it will not be enough. Only to win it, I am not talking about going through to the next round. We have to be really on top of our game tomorrow, that is what we will try.”

Is Form a worry for the Reds?

These comments reflect the team’s current state of uncertainty, with ups and downs that have left them struggling to find their footing. Towards the end, he spoke about his determination to turn things around for his team, and his unwavering belief that they can do so.

Despite the setbacks they have faced this season, Liverpool remains a formidable team, with a wealth of talent at their disposal. However, they will need to be at their absolute best if they hope to win against Real Madrid in the Champions League.
