Klopp is not afraid to be sacked from Liverpool leadership

German coach Jürgen Klopp is not afraid to be sacked from Liverpool, but he admitted on the eve of facing Chelsea in a postponed match of the English Football League that the red club is struggling to get out of its depression.

After being a contender for a domestic quadruple last season, Liverpool have fallen to eighth place now, following a series of negative results, the latest of which was against defending champions Manchester City 1-4.

They are currently eight points clear of fourth place, the last Champions League qualifier.

Tuesday at Stamford Bridge comes to Chelsea, who at the weekend abandoned coach Graham Potter, hours after Leicester parted ways with Northern Ireland coach Brandon Rodgers. Tottenham also parted ways with Italian coach Antonio Conte last week.

So far, there have been a record 13 changes of coach in the Premier League.

Klopp said Monday: "I'm aware that I'm sitting here because of the past and not because of what we've done this season. If I had been in my first season, things would have been different."

Klopp managed to lead Liverpool to the league title in 2020 after a long absence, the Champions League title in 2019 and the runners-up in 2018 and 2022.

The former Borussia Dortmund German coach continued about his future: "There is no need to be afraid. I'm here to get results. I'm not here as a talisman or as a mural on the wall of a house."

Klopp, 55, who arrived at Liverpool in 2015, reiterated his commitment to the club: "I'm fully involved. We must find solutions. We can't keep playing like we do occasionally, we don't always thank God, every now and then, and that's really allowed for me."
