Jurgen Klopp Warns Liverpool Players After Back-to-Back Thrashings

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has warned his players against slacking off in the coming weeks, with his side fresh off the back of 5-0 and 4-1 wins over Porto and West Ham.

The Reds sit just two points behind second-placed Manchester United in the league and have a simple second leg against their Portuguese opponents in the last 16 of the Champions League, but Klopp insisted that his players have to ‘stay angry’ to keep their edge.

​Speaking on Saturday, the German said: “Now we need to stay angry with the rest of the world. We need to stay aggressive. You lose a little bit if you win all the time. We didn’t win all the time but two, three or four weeks in a row.

“Then it is hard to win the fifth one as well, to stay on track and do it. We all know if we lose to ­Newcastle [Liverpool’s next game], we stand here and talk and it is ­different. We have to keep going.

“At the beginning of the season you don’t have a lot of laughter in the dressing room. Now when we eat it’s like, ‘Come on, please settle’. We are in a good moment, they are fantastic guys, they all like each other, there are a few jokes. Keep this going without ­getting soft. I don’t want to wait ­until I see it. That’s it.”

He did admit to allowing himself a little time to celebrate Saturday’s impressive win over David Moyes’ side though, saying: “I decided for myself that I will stay happy for one night. Then I would start thinking about Newcastle.”
