Embattled Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed that it would be difficult to find better mangers that would do a better job than the one he has done at the Merseyside club.
Speaking ahead of his side’s mammoth clash with Manchester United on Saturday afternoon, Klopp said:
“I don’t think I am perfect but it’s quite difficult to find better options.”
The 50-year old German has come under heavy criticisms for the first time in his reign after Liverpool’s average start to the season.
The Reds have only won one of the last seven games in all competitions and are already seven points adrift of the top two clubs namely Manchester United and Manchester City in the league.
They are also out of the Carabao Cup in addition to them remaining winless in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) proper.
Speaking further, Klopp said:
“If they sack me now, I don’t think there would be a lot of managers who would do the job better than I do.
“There’s not the biggest distance between us and the top teams.
“If I came in today as the new manager and if everybody would give us this kind of time to take the next step, that would be perfect.” he concluded.
