Jurgen Klopp reveals worst defeat of his Liverpool career

Jurgen Klopp

Jurgen Klopp has described Liverpool’s 4-1 defeat to SSC Napoli in the UEFA Champions League as their “worst” performance in his tenure at the club.

Klopp’s side were thoroughly beaten by a rampant Napoli side last week in Europe, bringing the Reds’ disappointing early season form to a shocking low.

Before Liverpool’s upcoming Champions League match against Ajax, the German manager described the game to the media as a “horror show”: “I watched the game back plenty of times and it was a real horror show to be honest.

“It was the worst game we played since I was here. 8 out of 11 were below their level, and the three others were not on a top level, just a normal game.

“I have to do something, I can’t sit there and wait for how we react. Is this the situation I wanted? No. But now you are in it you find it interesting and challenging. [We had a] general meeting, showing these situations and they are too obvious. It was not needed to say a lot about it but I did anyway.

“Did I question the players? Generally, no. In this situation, yes. ‘Why would you do that? Why would we do that?’ There are four or five days now of absolute truth. We didn’t hide anything, we didn’t hold back anything, there was no need for that. We just said it how it is.”

After their weekend match against Chelsea was postponed due to the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, the only game for Klopp’s teams this week will be the midweek encounter with Ajax.
