Liverpool drew 0-0 with a managerless Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday evening.
The Merseysiders are now winless in three and face off with top of the table Arsenal later this week.
And now, speaking post-Chelsea, Jurgen Klopp has made a shock admission.
Asked by the BBC if he’d ever had such a perplexing campaign, the German said: “No of course not, thank God. I wouldn’t be manager of Liverpool if I’d had a couple of these seasons, it’s clear.
“We have it now and we have to get through. I know that nobody wants to listen to that, nobody wants to hear that. But again, that’s how life is and that’s how football is if things don’t go your way. You have to fight as long as you change the fortunes again.”
Given Klopp has himself admitted he is now performing well bellow the standards of Liverpool FC, it will be interesting to see how his future is handled at the end of the season.
Liverpool are currently 8th in the Premier League and seven points off 4th. They have a game in hand on Tottenham, but with a tough clash vs Arsenal coming up this weekend, the Reds’ Champions League hopes for the campaign are seemingly all but over.
Granted, Liverpool can still qualify for the Europa League or Europa Conference League, but the gulf in revenue between the Champions League and those competitions is massive, and something Liverpool’s owners will likely not be too happy at missing out on.
