Liverpool made Jurgen Klopp and Jordan Henderson available to the media ahead of Leipzig v Liverpool tomorrow. Jurgen Klopp addressed the media first and tackled the rumours on social media surrounding him leaving the club.
The German manager started off his press conference by reassuring everyone that he is “absolutely okay”. Then dove head first into all the questions.
“We have to keep our good things going. If you saw the games vs City and Leicester, it didn’t look like games we’d concede seven and score two. It happened because of individual mistakes, we have spoken about that.”Jurgen Klopp on individual mistakes
Klopp went on to talk about his confidence in the squad and how they are ready for anything.
