Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp has dismissed any possibility of an exit from Anfield following their loss to Leicester City at the King Power Stadium over the weekend past.
It has been a rather tough start for the previous champions of England since the year turned 2021. A time to forget quickly? Definitely!
Since their Premier League draw to Manchester United at Anfield on the 17th of January, the Reds endured their fourth loss in six games against the Foxes.
During the stretch of poor results, they’ve now exited from the FA Cup at the hands of their oldest foes Manchester United and have fallen out of the title race, leaving Manchester City in the clear.
There were six EPL matches played, two games won, four lost, six points collected from a possible 18, and a 13-point gap that has opened up between them and the league leaders.

I heard about both. The banner was nice, I don’t feel that I need special support in this moment but it’s nice. I don’t need a break
I am fully of energy, honestly. I see an interesting challenge. We will sort it by playing football, we will sort it together by fighting with all we have. That’s the plan.

Klopp exit rumours followed the Leicester loss
The loss against the Foxes brought forth a lot of rumours about the Liverpool boss. It was said that a dressing room bust-up between players broke out after the game and that Klopp walked out because he’s had enough.
This was far from the truth and in fact, a lot of fiction. The German made it clear that the challenge ahead is a unique one and one he looks forward to. He jokingly asked if he left willingly or if he got fired.
This has cleared the air and let us all know the manager, along with his players, are ready to play their way out of this massive hole they’ve been stuck in over the past month or so.

Liverpool’s preparations for their Champions League clash against RB Leipzig
Liverpool’s preparations for their Champions League round of 16 clash against RB Leipzig looks to be going according to plan.
The Reds travelled and touched down in Budapest, Hungary for their meeting with the German side – which will also be the first competitive meeting between the two.
The game will be held at the Puskás Aréna and is one of three Champions League fixtures that have been relocated due to COVID travel bans within Europe.
This clash has been regarded as the perfect distraction from the EPL woes they’ve suffered and a victory over the Bundesliga outfit could be the perfect boost for the club’s low morale.
