Jurgen Klopp comments on West Ham United

Jurgen Klopp says that Liverpool with its annihilation of West Ham United has shown to everyone that they can soak the pressure as well as any other team playing in the top flight.


Because of the waste of a penalty by Liverpool in the previous match, the critics were starting to doubt if the Reds had got the temperament to play under intense pressure situations.

But, Klopp reckons whatever doubts that were there would have gone out of the window now after an absolutely clinical performance by the Merseyside club at the Olympic Stadium.

As per Klopp, he himself never had any doubts over the temperament of his players because his players have earned more than 70 points this season and they couldn’t have earned so many points without playing some fantastic Football.

Klopp opines that pressure is something one can’t get away from. It will always be there in life, but, what one must do is to overlook the negative aspects of pressure and just exploit the positive aspects of it which his players did in the West Ham game. (more…)

LIVERPOOL TO FACE SUMMER TRANSFER TEST

Premier League side Liverpool are set to face a test in their summer transfer plans with Mamadou Sakho and Daniel Sturridge.


The club of recent seems like one that buys players but rarely use them in games before selling them off.

Liverpool were ranked the most commercial success in terms of transfers from 2010 mainly from selling their places for premium prices. With business not as good of recent, there is a test of how the club would handle its biggest assets in Sakho and Sturridge as they fall off the pecking order.

Coach Jurgen Klopp could take a leave from his counterpart at Old Trafford who negotiated for players to leave at the best prices. Klopp’s negotiating skills would come to bear when he decides to sell off Sturridge. The Three Lions star was the starting forward late last year, and he netted 21 league goals in his full Premier League season. (more…)

AGGER: LIVERPOOL CAN ACHIEVE BIG THINGS

Former Liverpool defender Daniel Agger is confident that his former club can continue with their impressive form this season that has already made them a title contender.


Unlike last season, the Reds have made a head start to the Premier League campaign this year, sitting comfortably in fourth place after just eight matches so far. The Reds who reached two cup finals last campaign are much of a better squad this season and are currently challenging for every silver.

The 0-0 draw with Manchester United was the second time this campaign that Jürgen Klopp’s men have failed to score in all competition. It is this startling performance that has drawn the attention of their former defender Agger who says he has high hopes for this Liverpool team this season.

Here is what the former Liverpool told Liverpool.com:

“It’s going well so far. To be honest, I have some expectations this year, especially after last year. Jürgen is looking good for the club; I think he’s doing well. He has some great ideas and the way he talks to the media, everything, I like.”s (more…)

Agger admires Klopp

Daniel Agger has revealed that he is a great admirer of Jurgen Klopp and said that he is the right man for the Anfield side.


He stated that he is happy with the way Liverpool is progressing and believes that the manager is already having a real impact on the team.

Daniel Agger said that Klopp has made an excellent start to his Liverpool career and believes that there is still a lot more to come.

He said that he has always been an admirer of the German manager during his time at Borussia Dortmund and believes that he will bring the same kind of professionalism to Liverpool. Agger said that Liverpool is a big club in England and has been for a long time in the shadows of other competitors.

He believes that Jurgen Klopp has the necessary experience to manage a club of this side and believes that he also has the charisma to lead the club. (more…)

LIVERPOOL REMAIN A WORK IN PROGRESS

The signing of Coach Jurgen Klopp was met with so much joy by Liverpool fans, and well wishers.


Klopp has given the Reds squad a winning mentality, hope and the ability to dare to dream. Playing in two finals in his first tenure resuscitated a dying side under Brendan Rodgers. However, they remain a work in progress.

Liverpool is set to meet with Premier League defending champions Leicester City after the international break, and the encounter promises to be as exciting as their last show against Tottenham Hotspur. The Reds would need to bring their A game, as their opponents would not be easy to get past, and dropping so much points early in the season doesn’t end well. After former coach Rodgers allowed veteran Daniel Agger to leave, Klopp allowed Martin Skrtel and Kolo Toure leave as well. His signing Ragnar Klavan was beaten twice in action against Burnley, but the hope is that he would improve. Leicester under 21 Ben Chilwell was linked with a move to Liverpool but they couldn’t meet the fee of the Foxes. (more…)

Liverpool seemed to have secured a transfer for the long term

Liverpool seemed to have secured a transfer for the long term when they brought in Danny Ings from Burnley on a free transfer.


The club were later made to pay a hefty fee as training compensation to the newly promoted Premier League outfit. However, this seemed like money well spent by Brendan Rodgers sinceIngs had proved himself in different levels of English football. The last 12 months, though, has been a turbulent period at Anfield and it was also the same personally for the player. The departure of Rodgers coupled with the arrival of Jurgen Klopp has completely altered his position within the squad.

It has been quite clear from the first day that the likes of Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi would be the first choice strikers under Klopp.Ings was realistically fighting for a place as the reserve striker, but even that has been put into doubt by the failure of the club to sell Christian Benteke. Klopp certainly does not seem to fancy the player who came from Aston Villa only recently. However, Liverpool are unable to find a buyer at their asking price of more than £ 20 million. Hence, it looks likeIngs may stay at the club unable to get any game time whatsoever in the summer.
