Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp reacts to his side’s terrible 3-0 loss to Wolves

Jurgen Klopp is adamant he hasn’t lost faith in his Liverpool players or his own abilities, even as their campaign has sunk to another appalling level.

The Reds were beaten 3-0 on Saturday by relegation-threatened Wolverhampton Wanderers to extend their 2023 Premier League winless season.

An own goal from Joel Matip and a strike from Craig Dawson in the opening 12 minutes were followed late by a shot from Ruben Neves as Liverpool fell to a seventh top-flight defeat and 10th in the table.

Although Klopp criticizes his underperforming players, he remains convinced that they can still turn things around.

“I don’t think they are at their best right now,” the Reds boss said. “Do I like it? No. But I still know how good they are and how good they can be. But life is not like that.

“It’s not everyday because of him, him, him. These things happen because we don’t help ourselves. Seven or eight players didn’t take part in the first goal, seven or eight didn’t take part in the second goal, but everyone is affected. We have to deal with these other situations.

“I haven’t lost faith in the guys, but I see where we need to improve. The beginning is horrible, then it’s normal, then it’s great. If we played like this at 0-0, I would like to see the final result. But right now it’s always “if, if, if”. I can’t hear it anymore, but that’s the situation.

“How can I solve this problem? Not in a press conference! It doesn’t help. I know my job, you know my job, I don’t want to explain how to build my team here. I will be judged by you what is right. But today, what I did was not good enough.

Klopp was unimpressed the way reporters interrogated him after Liverpool defeat to Wolves

Jurgen Klopp refused to speak to a reporter following Liverpool’s humiliating 3-0 defeat by Wolves on Saturday.


Liverpool’s winless league run extended to four games at Molineux as Craig Dawson and Ruben Neves got on the scoresheet after Joel Matip shot across his own net early on.

Wolves’ first goal was Liverpool’s fifth goal in the first five minutes of a Premier League match this season, more than any other side, while Dawson’s second came just seven minutes later.

In his post-match press conference, Klopp was asked by Athletic’s James Pearce if Liverpool’s tendency to start slowly was caused by an attitude problem, and the Reds boss was unimpressed by the way he was interrogated.

“It’s very difficult to talk to you when I’m 100% honest. I’d rather not do that,” Klopp told Pearce. “You know why, despite all the things you’ve written.
“If anyone else wants to ask this question, I’ll answer it.”

Another journalist present repeated the same question, which was answered by a visibly irritated Klopp.

Meanwhile, Klopp’s comments on Wolves’ third goal quickly drew the ire of the Molineux club on social media.


Klopp complimented Liverpool’s second-half performance during his press conference, adding: “I’m not counting the third goal because it was the first time they crossed the halfway line.”

Wolves responded with a cheeky tweet from their official account, replicating their usual full-time post with an image showing the scoreline 2-0, with Neves’ goal disallowed. Neves’ goal was his fifth in the Premier League this season, making it his most prolific season in the league.
