Jürgen Klopp: ‘I will not and I cannot go’

Liverpool have had a very rocky season with the Merseyside club currently sitting 10th in the Premier League, 22 points behind league-leaders Arsenal.

However, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp remains committed to the club.

When asked if people sometimes forget the difficult spells he had previously, Klopp replied: “I don’t think people forget it. If I was to look at it, the difficult spells always came at the end of the time. At Mainz, we had difficult times the whole time, if you like. At Dortmund, it was at the beginning and end.

“I will not and I cannot go. I have too much responsibility and I want that.

“These are the difficult times and I don’t enjoy it, but if you can show in this time that especially this club is so special because we believe in anything. If people believe in me, then we can go through this together because when we come out, we will have great times again.

“Maybe the difficult times are a bit too long already for me as well, so that makes it really difficult, but I don’t think about these kinds of things. I’m here, 100 per cent committed.

“I’ve said before, if we win, I feel like I’m a part of it, but if we lose, I feel 100 per cent responsible. I’ve always been like this so you can imagine how big the responsibility is I feel at the moment. We will do absolutely everything to get through this and prepare for a positive future again.”

Liverpool host their Merseyside rivals Everton at Anfield tonight before making the trip to the North East at the weekend as they face Newcastle United.

Klopp’s side are yet to win a Premier League game in 2023 with their last win coming in December versus Leicester City.

Despite an underwhelming season so far in the league, their campaign in the Champions League has been near faultless after winning five out of their six group stage games.

They face Real Madrid in the round of 16 at Anfield later this month.
