"He could walk..." - Concerns Klopp could step down as Liverpool manager
| Last updated
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp could "walk away" from the club rather than being sacked, a journalist has claimed.
Liverpool suffered a humiliating 3-0 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday, which has left the club 11 points adrift of the top four in the Premier League.
German journalist Jan Aage Fjortoft claims Klopp won't be sacked by Liverpool but could choose to step down after eight years in charge.
Posting on social media after the game, he said: "Klopp won't be fired, but he could walk away."
This isn't the news that Liverpool fans will want to hear with many believing that he is the only one who can sort out the mess they currently find themselves in.
Klopp determined to fight
Despite this, the German manager insisted that his only focus is getting Liverpool back on track.
In his press conference after the game, Klopp was asked if he was confident in his ability to get his team back to winning ways and he said: "Yeah, yeah, yeah. Absolutely."
The performance from the Reds was one to forget and even their manager described a period of the game as the worst he's seen for a while.
He continued: "You know my job, I know my job, my job is not to explain here how I can build up my team.
"I will be judged by that from you and that’s fine. Let me say it like this, for today, it was not good enough, what I did."
It may feel like things aren't getting any better for Liverpool but if there's any manager who has the qualities to turn things around and get the best out of their group of players it's Klopp.
The success he's had during his tenure at the club has afforded him time to be able to prove he can do just that.
He also has legendary status amongst the fans so the owners wouldn't want to risk upsetting them even further by sacking him.
