Liverpool owners FSG’s stance on Jurgen Klopp amid poor form and ‘absurd’ claim

Jurgen Klopp still has the backing of Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group amid the crisis at the club, according to reports.

The champions have nosedived this season and are on the worst run in their history having lost six consecutive Premier League matches at Anfield.

Liverpool are now a staggering 22 points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City, and more worryingly, seven points behind Chelsea in fourth with 10 games left this season.

Failure to finish in the top four would see Liverpool miss out on Champions League football next season, which would have a catastrophic impact on the club financially.

Jurgen Klopp reportedly still has the backing of Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group

Klopp’s future has been under the spotlight in recent weeks, but according to The Telegraph, Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group have branded questions over the manager ‘absurd’.

FSG is said to believe Klopp to be the best manager in the world and it is confident the German will turn things around.

Germany boss Joachim Low announced this Tuesday he will step down after this summer’s European Championships.

But Klopp quickly batted away the suggestion he could leave Liverpool for the national job.

“If I’m available for the job of the coach for the German national team in the summer? No,” said Klopp.

“After the summer, no. Joachim Low did an incredible job for so many years – I think he is the longest servant we’ve ever had in Germany, if I am right, and one of the most successful for sure.

“He did an incredible job and I understand he wants to have this highlight for him, a European Championship and tries to squeeze everything out that he can in this tournament, and then somebody else will do the job.

“I am pretty sure with the amount of really good German managers at the moment the German FA will find a good solution.”
