As per recent betting odds, Jurgen Klopp seems to be the latest Manager who may face the heat for his team’s poor run in Premier League.
Liverpool has faced three defeats in the rows, and they are now languishing on the fourth spot with just three wins in the last 12 matches in all competitions.
Liverpool’s nightmare run has seen them fall 13 points behind Manchester City in the Premier league table. City also has a game in hand and their current form makes them the favorite to win the title this year.
So, by every means, Liverpool’s chances of defending their title this year are quite slim. They may struggle to keep up at Top four, given their poor form.
Nothing going in the ‘right way’ for Jurgen Klopp
It was only last week when the football fraternity came to know about Klopp’s mother’s shocking demise. With Liverpool’s nightmare run, his troubles don’t seem to be ending any time sooner.
We must mention that If all the teams beneath Liverpool were to win their games in hand, the Reds would finish as eighth.
On the other side, Klopp seems a bit ‘hopeless’ about their title defense, given the recent defeats. After being asked whether or not his team now had to concede the title, an emotional Klopp said ‘yes’.
In a week that made him face his mother’s unfortunate demise, the German is indeed undergoing the worst phase in his entire life right now. As a result, he now stands as the favorite to be the next Premier League manager to leave.
Even betting odds aren’t in Jurgen Klopp’s favor
According to Skybet, Klopp stands as a favorite with 6/4 odds to be the next Manager under the radar. The odds further put him above Jose Mourinho and Roy Hodgson.
Who would have thought that the last year’s ‘ PL Manager of the year awardee” would stand in such troubled waters?
His achievements at Anfield are limitless. Besides being a highly appreciated manager, Klopp made Liverpool grabbed the Champions League, World Club Cup, and Premier League title last year. So, he got some good numbers and achievements at his back by every means.
Hence, given to achievements and success, he brought to Anfield in the past few years, his chances of being sacked are slim. However, with Liverpool having nothing going their way recently, both on-and-off the pitch, a potential exit for Klopp may happen.
Despite his recent struggles, Jurgen Klopp is Still a Fan Favorite!
After losing to Leicester 3-1 recently, Liverpool’s nightmare run has hit rock bottom. Klopp has pointed out a list of positives in his side’s performance at the King Power stadium. Moreover, Klopp still stands strong as a fan’s favorite at Anfield and each of those fans must be praying about his stay as a manager
“I don’t think we can close the gap. We are not worried about the title, we are not silly.”We have to win football games and big parts of the football were really good,” said Klopp.
“We scored a great goal but conceded a strange one and I think it’s offside, and the [goal for] 2-1 is a misunderstanding. That had too big an impact on the game. We had to show a different reaction, and the third we gave away too easily. We have to avoid mistakes and misunderstandings. Today we didn’t do that. The rest of the game was really good. First, we have to perform again – results are massively related to the performance.“, he further added.
Liverpool fans are praying for some ‘badly required’ luck for their team. As Reds gear up to face RB Leipzig in the first leg of the Champions League’s last-16 on Tuesday. Hence, whether or not Klopp stays at Anfield would depend on Liverpool’s performance over the next few weeks.
