Liverpool board makes decision on sacking Klopp amid claims he could resign

According to a new report, the Liverpool board has made its position regarding the future of manager Jurgen Klopp clear.

The Reds have struggled for much of the current season and are currently in eleventh place in the league table.

They have lost their last four Premier League games and have been eliminated from the FA Cup and Carabao Cup, both of which they won last season.

The Reds conceded two goals in the first 12 minutes of Saturday’s 3-0 loss to Wolves, according to Klopp, who described the result as ‘very frustrating’ and ‘very disappointing’ 

The German journalist Jan Aage Fjortoft stated after the game that he believes Klopp could leave Anfield.

Liverpool’s midfield and defense have been heavily criticized this season, but they have now gone three Premier League games without scoring.

In addition, the club’s leading scorer since the conclusion of the World Cup is the Leicester defender Wout Faes, who scored two own goals in Liverpool’s 2-1 victory over Brendan Rodgers’ squad in December.

A lack of investment in the playing squad has been cited as a major reason for the side’s struggles, despite Klopp’s incredible success at Anfield over the years.

Moreover, the Liverpool board has reportedly expressed their sentiments.

According to  The Athletic, there is “no chance” that Liverpool will fire Klopp, and the club’s owners, Fenway Sports Group, continue to support him (FSG).

It is also rumored that, regardless of the outcome of the remainder of the season, the German will lead the summer rebuild, which could involve a lucrative transfer for Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham.

Klopp has garnered a reputation as one of the world’s best managers, having led Dortmund and Liverpool to consistent, elite-level contention during his tenure with both clubs.

He will have to do so again at Anfield beginning this summer, as the Reds struggle to recapture the form that made them perennial domestic title contenders.

Klopp will seek revenge against Real Madrid, who defeated Liverpool in last year’s Champions League final, when the two teams meet in the round of 16 of the competition next week.
