"Senior FSG figures..." - Journalist drops major update on Klopp's Liverpool future after 'crisis talks' held

"Senior FSG figures..." - Journalist drops major update on Klopp's Liverpool future after 'crisis talks' held

Will Klopp remain Liverpool manager?

A journalist has dropped a major update on the future of Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

On Sunday Chelsea’s Graham Potter and Leicester City’s Brendan Rodgers became the latest managerial casualties of the 2022/23 Premier League season.

The division has now seen a record 12 sackings this term, and given Liverpool's topsy-turvy form reports have suggested Jurgen Klopp could be the next person to be relieved of his duties.

After the Reds were dismantled 4-1 by Manchester City the Daily Mail claimed Klopp had held “crisis talks” with his Liverpool players.

The squad reportedly got together to discuss their current woes in a meeting on Sunday, knowing that a defeat to Chelsea on Tuesday night will all but end their hopes of a top-four finish.

Will Liverpool look to sack Klopp?

Despite Liverpool’s dismal form, The Athletic claim there is “no chance” of Liverpool’s owners, Fenway Sports Group, sacking Klopp irrespective of what happens between now and the end of May.

This is reportedly because of the credit he still boasts in the boardroom and the stands, with the German having largely overseen an immensely successful seven-and-a-half year tenure on Merseyside.

Klopp even admitted as much in Monday’s press conference. The 55-year-old said: “I’m still here because of what happened in the last few years rather than this season. I don’t like the fact that I have to pretty much rely on that.”


Senior FSG figures are said to remain fully behind Klopp and have sympathy for the problems he’s been wrestling with.

Indeed, the squad are likely still recovering physically and mentally from the impact of last season’s 63 games, while there has been an unprecedented series of injuries to contend with.

The Athletic claim that though the American owners knew some kind of drop off was inevitable as the team evolved, no one foresaw such a drastic slump in standards, with several key first team members having seen their form nose dive.
