Klopp is content with Liverpool’s future despite ownership uncertainty

Klopp is content with Liverpool’s future despite ownership uncertainty

Despite the current uncertainty surrounding the ownership situation, Jurgen Klopp has dismissed any doubts about his future at Liverpool.

Fenway Sports Group (FSG) has stated that they are looking for new investment in the club, but there are reports that they are willing to sell the club permanently.

Klopp was speaking to the media following Liverpool’s Carabao Cup penalty shootout victory over Derby County, and he stated that the ongoing rumours were not an unnecessary distraction ahead of the game.

The German also dismissed any comparisons to the events that transpired at Chelsea following the departure of Roman Abramovich, when new owner Todd Boehly fired Thomas Tuchel and replaced him with Graham Potter.

“From what I’ve read, they’re looking for investment,” he said. “That’s a good idea.

“However, it had no effect on preparation.” The players did not ask me, so it means nothing to me.

“I have a fantastic working relationship with FSG. I like how it works, but if it changes, I am committed to the club, and it has nothing to do with the people here.

“The situation has completely changed. Chelsea had to be sold because the owner was in trouble and the situation was urgent. We don’t have anything like that here.

“It’s critical that we keep going and planning while this process is taking place.”

“These things take time, and we must persevere during that time.” That is something I will make certain of.

“Nothing happened at the time. It is only news. And no one had a heart attack and exclaimed, “Oh my God!” We’ll deal with whatever happens.”

The Reds were made to sweat on the field in the first game of their Carabao Cup defence, eventually winning 3-2 on penalties against the Rams.

Caoimhin Kelleher set a club record by saving three spot-kicks in the shootout to secure their place in the fourth-round draw on Thursday.

Kelleher clearly enjoys playing in this competition, and it was his penalty that gave Klopp’s team the trophy in February at Wembley.

He also has the distinction of having won the most penalty shootouts as a Liverpool player in club history – four at the time of writing.

Klopp’s team now returns to the Premier League, hosting Southampton at Anfield on Saturday.

The Reds have had a difficult start to their league campaign, falling 15 points behind leaders Arsenal after only 13 games.
