Jürgen Klopp reveals his innovative approach to Liverpool's problem
Liverpool's manager, Jürgen Klopp, has revealed his new innovative approach to resolving the club's current poor run
Jürgen Klopp's Liverpool are experiencing their worst start to a season for the first time since the German's maiden season in charge at Anfield.
The Reds, who won the UEFA Champions League trophy, Premier League, FA Cup, and EFL Cup under the German manager, have failed to replicate their success story this season, winning only two of their last seven games.
Following an embarrassing 4-1 defeat in their last outing against Italian side Napoli in the UEFA Champions League group stage, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed that they have devised a new approach to solve their current problem.
The 55-year-old stated that he did not place individual blame on any of his players, insisting that they must address the issue as a team.
"We had four or five days now of absolute truth," Klopp said in a press conference. "Not to knock the players down, just to make sure where we are now." This is the starting point for us to sort the problems together on the pitch. There was no pointing at each other. "
Jürgen Klopp had been dealt with many injury setbacks this season, which has kept most of his first-team players out for extended periods, including key midfielder Thiago Alcantara.
The manager, who was adamant about bringing in a new midfielder last month after having most of his first team midfield players sidelined, signed Juventus midfielder Arthur Melo on transfer deadline day, boosting the slew of talented players he had added to his team.
Despite the number of players in Klopp's locker, Liverpool have failed to replicate their past success, prompting a talkSPORT pundit to suggest that Liverpool have lost their best player in Sadio Mané, who left Anfield for Bayern Munich this summer.
The Premier League side have struggled to find the attacking transitions they had during Sadio Mané's six-year spell at the club, which may have contributed to their poor start this season.
Despite signing an excellent replacement in Colombian winger Luis Díaz, the Reds seem to miss the connection they had with Sadio Mané and Mohamed Salah, which led them to many glory days.
After revealing long talks with his team, Klopp will hope to get his team back on track when they face Ajax on Tuesday night in the second game of their Champions League group stage.
