Jurgen Klopp, the Liverpool manager, has admitted this is the lowest point of his managerial career.
The victory by Fulham over Liverpool through Mario Lemina’s goal, inflicted a sixth straight home defeat on the Premier League champions on Sunday.
In fact, it represents Liverpool’s worst run in the club’s history.
According to Klopp, “My boys wanted it. Believe me, they want to win games. I see how much it hurts. It’s easy to judge it that way because Fulham won, so you say they wanted it more.
“But I don’t think that’s the problem. I don’t have to stand here and say we’re fighting for this or that”.
On the question of if it was one of the lowest points in his managerial reign, he replied: “I would wish to say no but yes it is.
“That’s not a problem. I don’t always have to have the best times. This team is an extreme team. We were extremely successful and now we have an extreme situation as well but we will fight through.”
Meanwhile Klopp has told the club to decide whether or not they want to hire someone else in his place.
“We cannot do other than our best – and that’s how it always is,” the German told reporters, per the Mirror.
“And if there is somebody who thinks there is another one who can do better, then they have to make the decision. That is clear.”
He has also warned his players who only want to play Champions League football that they are free to leave.
