‘He Can’t Be Serious’ ‘Absolute Rubbish’ – Fans on Twitter Dismiss Liverpool Legend’s Comments About Klopp’s Future

Liverpool legend John Toshack believes that the Reds should consider the future of manager Jurgen Klopp if the German doesn’t win a trophy this season.

The former Borussia Dortmund boss has guided the Merseyside club to their best ever start to a league season, but Toshack thinks Klopp should be judged on titles won:

“If Liverpool don’t win a trophy this year then they’ve got a decision to make (about Klopp). Things look really good at the moment, but this is Klopp’s third full season at Liverpool and this is the acid test for him.

“You can be unlucky not to win a trophy, but at the top clubs that’s what matters. It’s such a fine dividing line, but when you’re at a club like Liverpool that’s what it’s all about.”

Needless to say that most Liverpool supporters on Twitter vehemently disagreed with the former Reds striker’s opinion:

While it’s understandable to say that a manager’s success should be gauged on trophies, you have to take into consideration the context of a manager’s impact on a team.

Klopp has transformed the club from one that had missed out on the top 4 for six of the last nine years to one that has reached the Champions League and Europa League finals.

They’ve also leapfrogged the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester United and Arsenal in becoming the main challengers to Manchester City in the Premier League.
