Jurgen Klopp refuses to apologize to Liverpool players



The Liverpool manager admitted to being concerned after his side’s latest defeat to Wolves

Jurgen Klopp admits he is very concerned about Liverpool’s form as he reiterates how much last season’s 63-game campaign has affected proceedings this term.

The Reds were beaten 3-0 by Wolves on Saturday afternoon as they lost their seventh game of the season at Molineux.

Craig Dawson scored his first goal for Wolves after 12 minutes after Joel Matip had hit his own net earlier and Ruben Neves ended things in the second half after a sharp counterattack with Adama Traore on heels.

Klopp admits he is worried about the current form and suggested the first half of the campaign was negatively affected by the marathon run of the last half.

However, the German refused to use that as an excuse for the current situation, saying: “Unfortunately the question has been asked too many times. How can I not worry?
“I can’t sit here and say that everything is fine and that we’ve done a good job. It’s not. I’ve been asked out if it’s because of last season, 63 games.”

“Yes, obviously it’s clear that [last season] affected the first part of the season, but how long do we want to be bothered by that? It’s February now.

We had a whole week to prepare, we still have eight or nine days to prepare for the next one.

“We are fit, we are there now, injuries yes, but today the first 12 minutes are not allowed and we did it anyway. It’s not 3-0 like a 3-0 Wolves were significantly better down the side for 12 minutes and maybe the last 10 when they were 3-0 up and the ball was their friend again.

“But in the meantime we were really in the game and put the pressure on, especially in the second half, against a team full of confidence and momentum. But we haven’t closed the situations, which doesn’t help.”

Liverpool will be back on the pitch when they host local rivals Everton in the Merseyside derby on 13 February.
