Jurgen Klopp led Liverpool team were in action yesterday in their Group A opener of the UEFA Champions League new campaign away from home against Italian Serie A giant, Napoli at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
The Reds in the game were not convincing as they were outclassed by sensational Napoli side with a massive four goals to one defeat at full time which was their worst European defeat since 1966 (a period of 56 years running).
The Merseyside club trailed from behind after they conceded a massive three goals in the first half going into the half time break which means they have now conceded the first goal in five games in all competitions this season (the joint-most of any premier league side along with Southampton).
Goals from Piotr Zielinski, Andre Zambo Anguissa and Giovanni Simeone gave Napoli a three goals lead at half time before the goal opener bagged his brace just two minutes into the second half to make it four nil, after which the visitor scored a consolation with a goal from Luis Diaz which ended the game four goals to one at full time.
After the game, Jurgen Klopp while addressing the media was asked if he is worried about getting sacked like Thomas Tuchel at Chelsea who was relieved of his duties as the head coach shortly after his team’s disappointing one nil defeat against Dinamo Zagreb.
“Not really as this is not the case here but who knows? The difference is we have different kind of owners. Ours are rather calm and expect me to sort the situation and not think someone else will. That’s how they see it. The day they change their thoughts they might tell me”.
Liverpool after the disappointing result will be hoping to be back to winning ways in their next game this weekend against Wolverhampton Wanderer.
