Wolves make fun of Jurgen Klopp’s comments after Liverpool’s humiliating 3-0 defeat
Jamie Carragher criticizes the Reds while the future of Klopp is in doubt. After being easily trounced by Wolves on Saturday, Liverpool’s season took a further hit, leaving Jurgen Klopp’s team 11 points off of the Champions League berths.
Liverpool’s season is in critical condition after a devastating loss to Wolves extended their winless streak in the Premier League to four games.
At Molineux, the Reds were unable to bounce back after giving up two goals in the first 12 minutes. Jamie Carragher blamed Liverpool’s understaffed defence for Jurgen Klopp’s team’s most recent defeat.
Carragher on Liverpool defense amid Klopp replacement speculations
That attack came after Wolves, a Premier League rival team, made fun of the German for his post-match remarks following the loss, while Ian Wright, a former Arsenal player, questioned Klopp’s future as Liverpool manager.
Jamie Carragher, a former player for Liverpool, criticized the Reds’ “shambolic” defence against Wolves. With a hamstring injury, star center-back Virgil van Dijk had been ruled out of their previous three Premier League contests.
“It’s not too difficult to play center-back next to the leader of the back four, judge center-backs when they have to lead themselves. Shambolic.”
The Dutchman is scheduled to resume training the following week, but the Reds haven’t managed to pick up a league victory while he’s been away. Carragher also thinks that their issues are a result of the other defenders’ inability to step up in Van Dijk’s absence.
After Liverpool’s Saturday loss to Wolves, he called them “shambolic.” He also criticized players like Joel Matip, Joe Gomez, and Ibrahima Konate for not handling Van Dijk’s absence well.
Wolves mocked Jurgen Klopp after the Liverpool loss
Jurgen Klopp has received harsh mockery from Wolves after the Liverpool manager mistakenly stated that their third goal on Saturday “did not count.” Ruben Neves’ goal was one of the rare occasions Wolves attacked in the second half, but Klopp claimed that he was not counting it.
In retaliation, Wolves posted a “full-time” picture on social media that had Neves’ name scratched out in the scorers’ area. Along with changing the score from 3-0 to 2-0 to reflect Klopp’s remarks.
“The third goal I don’t count because it was the first time they passed the halfway line in the second half. The other two goals, going into a game with all the things we said during the week and before the game then this start is horrible.”
Ian Wright, a former player for Arsenal, has questioned Jurgen Klopp’s job security at Liverpool. In spite of their losing streak, Wright believed the Reds are in “limbo” and expressed uncertainty about Klopp’s present management style.
