Jurgen Klopp hopes focusing on defence will bring them success

first_imgLiverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says the club is still searching to strike the right balance between defensive strength and attacking speed.Speaking before their Merseyside derby against Everton, the Liverpool coach when questioned to comment on the disconnection between the club’s conservative approach in midfield, as well as their previously unstoppable frontline, said, according to FourFourTwo.“Yes, in specific games we can say that,”“But to be honest for me it is quite strange.”“When everything is brilliant and we score goals you always ask about defending and how can we fix that?”“We fixed that, kind of, and it always happens that the first step is it costs you a bit of fluency and creativity. That is a completely normal thing.”“If someone would think about it for one second they would see it is clear, it is logical.”The coach dismissed suggestions of buying more players in January transfer as a solution to their plight.“Bringing one player in would change everything? That is bulls*** and you all know that,” he said.“One player doesn’t change everything.”divock origi, liverpoolReport: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“We have the players for it. We have to win football games. Really, with all the things I saw in this country football-wise, if people cannot enjoy our football then I really can’t help them.”“But I get constantly confronted with the question – something is missing. What’s that?”“Of course it could be better but it is not because of one player. We are creative. I don’t know how many goals we’ve scored but we’ve had many more chances.”“Creating is not a problem. You could say finishing [is] the problem, whatever you want.”“I get that you have to write about things, no problem, but write it and don’t ask me about it because I’m not interested about it, I don’t think about it and I can’t answer it.”“I don’t tell my boys to do one thing and then tell them publicly to do another thing.”“It is a special game, I have to say.” 🙌Klopp on Sunday’s Anfield encounter.👇— Liverpool FC (@LFC) November 30, 2018last_img read more

Danny Ayala was shot to death by deputies who answered a call Monday afternoon at the Summit at Alpine apartment homes. Someone at the apartment complex called 911 just before 3 p.m. to report a man who was yelling death threats. When deputies arrived, they said Ayala who was holding a knife began to advance towards them. According to homicide investigators, the deputies who feared for their lives, fired multiple shots at Ayala outside his apartment. The deputies administered first aid and CPR but Ayala died at the scene.However, Ayala’s family said it had heard a different version of the events from witnesses who claimed he was shot multiple times inside the apartment, after deputies broke through the door. Juan Ruiz, the victim’s uncle also questioned the treatment of Ayala’s four year old son, who may have witnessed the shooting and was taken into the the custody of the Sheriff’s Department after the shooting. Family members also said they were not informed about the child’s whereabouts for hours.“They should have called somebody as protocol, called somebody to “come pick up your child.’ You don’t just take a child and don’t tell nobody. You know, everybody was looking for the kid and nobody knows where he’s at,” Ruiz said. Family members said they were not notified of Ayala’s death by law enforcement, but learned of his death through the news media.At this time, no one is sure what happened in the moments before deputies opened fire. Homicide investigators were not able to say what deputies said to Ayala before the shooting. Vanessa Moore, Ayala’s cousin said the family wants more answers from the Sheriff’s Department. “People get upset all the time- unless there was a gun out there, unless he pointed a gun at the officers, which is not what they say happened- he had a knife, why did they tear down his door?”All these things that the policemen say happened and didn’t happen? We just need answers and if they don’t have them, that’s a little suspect to us, right now,” Moore said.

Matt Dobbs said. He remained on life support until Monday evening, when he was pronounced dead.Taing’s son told investigators his father had called him at work on the day of the assault and told him there had been “some type of theft or robbery” at the residence across the street from Lindbergh Neighborhood Park, Dobbs said.“The son called the police and began driving home,” the lieutenant said. “When the son arrived at the home, he found his father inside, suffering from apparent trauma to his upper body.”Officials have not disclosed the nature of the wounds suffered by the victim.Detectives determined that a safe was missing from the home, according to police. No suspects in the case have been identified.“The investigation is in the initial stages, and not much is known at this time, as the victim was alone in the home (when he was injured) and… never regained consciousness,” Dobbs said.A GoFundMe page was created for the Taing family.
