Gary McAllister Backs Jurgen Klopp to Turn around Liverpool’s Poor Form
Liverpool ambassador Gary McAllister says that manager Jurgen Klopp will find a way to turn around the results at the club.
He also says that the club have no doubts about the manager, as he is proven at the top level. Klopp replaced Brendan Rodgers midway through last season and immediately lead the club to 2 finals. Even though they lost in the EFL Cup and Europa League finals to Manchester City and Sevilla respectively, it was seen as a positive into the season. They picked up where they left off in the 2016-17 campaign after remaining in contention for the title with Chelsea up until January.
Since the turn of the year, though, results have dropped drastically with the club still waiting for their first league win in 2017. More importantly, a string of losses including defeats against relegation threatened Hull City and Swansea have left the club an incredible 14 points behind Chelsea.
Only a few weeks ago, Jurgen Klopp was delighted with the team remaining only six points behind Chelsea, who were on a 13 game winning run back then. Now, Liverpool will be fighting for a top four finish more than anything else. Despite the recent setbacks, McAllister remains confident that Klopp will be able to turn around the situation.
After 56 games, Klopp has the same record as Brendan Rodgers. “He is proven. A lot of managers come on and say they are winners. He is a winner, he is a proven winner.He has worked at a big club, he has taken the title away from Bayern Munich when he was at Dortmund, so he knows his way around.I can’t tell Jurgen Klopp what to do. It will be hard work and it will be loads of running and loads of biting and scratching to get points,” said the Liverpool ambassador.
