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
