Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp said he is not afraid of losing his job in light of recent high-profile layoffs in soccer.
After Liverpool’s away game against Chelsea on April 4, Klopp was asked if he was not afraid of being fired.
“I’m not afraid of the sack … no. There’s no need for being afraid, I need to deliver. I am fully in – but we have to sort this [out]. We can’t just continue playing how we do from time to time. We have to find a way out.”
Liverpool is having a disappointing season in all competitions. After struggling for an unprecedented quadruple last season, Klopp’s team is poised to end the season without trophies.
The club may also not qualify for the Champions League next season. Liverpool is eighth in the standings, eight points behind fourth-place Manchester United.
Graham Potter lost his job at Chelsea last Sunday. Leicester City has also lost their coach Brendan Rodgers. Earlier, Tottenham fired Italian specialist Antonio Conte and Bayern fired Julian Nagelsmann.
