Brendan Rodgers slams Jurgen Klopp


Former Liverpool boss knows what Klopp must do

Brendan Rodgers has claimed Jurgen Klopp has to win the title soon if he is to make his Liverpool stay, a long one.

The Northern Irishman was sacked from his job at Anfield earlier this season following a dismal start to the 2015/2016 campaign, but he did come very close to winning the Premier League.

The Reds were in the drivers seat in the closing stages of the campaign, but a 2-0 defeat to Chelsea and a 3-3 draw to Crystal Palace allowed Manchester City to sneak in, overtake them and eventually win the league.

Speaking about his replacement at Anfield, Rodgers admitted that to be deemed a success, Klopp will have to win the Premier League title sooner rather than later.

Rodgers Warns Klopp

“They have a very good manager in Jurgen Klopp in place.

“It is going to take time to bed in his methods and how he wants to work. He has some very good

“The expectancy of course is to win the league, we went very close in my time and obviously Jurgen will go in and feel that he can improve on that and that’s why the owners made the change.

“They felt they wanted to improve and to improve on runners-up would be to win the league but it is going to take time.

“I’m sure the owners will give him that time.”
