Klopp Brings Pressing and Belief to Anfield

Although he couldn’t engineer the win that all Liverpool fans most desperately wanted and the three points that were required to keep pace with leaders Chelsea, the game against The Old Enemy highlighted once again that Jurgen Klopp is absolutely the right man for The Reds.

Seeing Klopp engaged in a bust-up with Jose Mourinho on the touchline made the German even more popular with Liverpool fans who are no admirers of Mourinho after his tomfoolery as Chelsea manager in the Rafa Benitez years.

Although it was a disappointing result after being ahead for much of the game, a point at the home of Manchester United can be seen as a decent outcome and leaves Liverpool still on the heels of Chelsea with players returning to enhance Klopp’s options over the next few games. Continue reading

Gerrard wants to return as coach

Steven Gerrard has declared that he is ready to go back to Liverpool to take on a coaching role. He is currently playing for LA Galaxy in the MLS but wants to return to England at the end of his contract. Gerrard joined LA Galaxy at the end of last season and still have one year left in his contract.

Steven Gerrard has already started his coaching badges and would want to further his training with a coaching role at the club. He has recently met the current Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp and both men seems to get along with each other.

Klopp has allowed Steven Gerrard to train with the Liverpool side during the MLS off-season, and he believes that having Gerrard around can help boost the team spirit. Klopp has stated that he is impressed with the former Liverpool’s skipper form and that he is still a great player. The manager has revealed that Gerrard has helped him understand the club better and provide him some insights into the club culture.

At the moment, Gerrard knows that he still have a lot to learn – the step up toe professional coaching is similar to swapping playing games at Titan Bet and actually sitting at a table facing off against poker champions!

He stated that a lot of players did not make it as a manager because this is two different roles. He believes that he has still a lot to learn from the other top managers. He is interested in getting as much knowledge and experience as he can and then afterwards he will decide whether he can make it as a manager. One way to do this would be to work at Liverpool and get as much insight as possible for the German tactician.

Alongside his coaching badges, Steven Gerrard has also been offered a job as a pundit and very soon you will be hearing the former Liverpool man’s analysis on the media.

Tough test at St. Mary’s for Liverpool

Consistency may have eluded Liverpool during a season which promised much yet failed to meet expectations, but as Jurgen Klopp’s team travel to St. Mary’s this weekend for a potentially tough test against a Southampton side who continue to make good progress under Ronald Koeman, there is still hope that Liverpool can enjoy a strong end to the season that may put them in contention for a top four finish.

Three straight Premier League victories have not only made the Reds one of the in-form teams alongside West Ham and Bournemouth, but also reignited hopes of making a late push to secure Champions League football next season. Continue reading
