Middlesbrough manager Neil Warnock has labelled the suggestion that Jurgen Klopp should be sacked by Liverpool as football at its craziest.
Warnock claims that he saw a group of people in the media asking for Klopp to be sacked by Liverpool and could not believe it. He points out that Klopp has lost, in his words, the best centre-back in world football in Virgil van Dijk and that the Dutchman is irreplaceable, affecting Liverpool’s form this season in the Premier League.
He says that Klopp can put players in different positions and find solutions, but nothing will compare to having the “real quality” that van Dijk possesses. Warnock says Klopp does not need to worry about the defence when van Dijk is playing as the former Saints player does it for him with his quality at the back.
Football Daily posted the clip on Twitter, with Warnock offering his thoughts on Klopp’s situation at Liverpool this season.
