Gary Neville calls Liverpool ‘zombies’ after string of poor performances

Gary Neville calls Liverpool ‘zombies’ after string of poor performances

Zombie-like Liverpool

Gary Neville has levelled a serious criticism at Liverpool after describing the side as acting like a bunch of zombies. Claiming that they are simply walking around the pitch and not trying.

“It’s starting to get a little bit worrying in the sense we know they have got injuries, we know they have not got fans in the stadium, we know about COVID and there a lot of games, but it’s the same for everybody.”

“But it’s the lack of change. A different idea. They just look beaten, almost like zombies on the pitch. Walking around thinking the same thing.”

“Maybe it needs something different from Klopp? He has been quite simply unchallengeable and still is at Liverpool but even he might be thinking now: ‘do I have to do something different?”

Gary Neville has taken to social media on a number of occasions to mock Liverpool, which is likely just an excuse to poke fun at his colleague Jamie Carragher whom he shares an amusing rivalry with.

In support of Klopp

Despite a gradually growing number of people arguing that Jurgen Klopp could even be in danger of losing his job, many still believe he is the best thing to happen to Liverpool and that the environment and competitive nature of the club which now exists is all down to the German.

The chief football writer at The Times Henry Winter described Liverpool’s situation more positively. A statement which saw plenty of support.

‘Klopp’s the best thing to happen to #lfc in years. Rebuilt team, rebuilt belief, transformed club behind the scenes, sports science, nutrition etc. Won European Cup and the title, playing fabulous football. Klopp’s absolutely the right man to lead them through this current storm,’ he wrote.

Gary Lineker replied to the tweet by simply saying, ‘If anyone doubts that, then they don’t have a clue.’

Liverpool now travel to Sheffield United before facing Chelsea in a top 4 6-pointer.
