Klopp concedes title has gone for this season

Jurgen Klopp concedes title is over for Liverpool

Liverpool boos Jurgen Klopp concedes title has gone after latest calamity.

It may be obvious to even the most ardent Liverpool fans, but for the first time today, Jurgen Klopp conceded that Liverpool’s title defence is over.

Liverpool suffered their third defeat in a row when losing 3-1 away to Leicester City. The defeat leaves the Reds in 4th place, and 5 points adrift of 3rd placed Manchester United.

Bizarrely Liverpool were the better side today. Right up until Leicester’s equaliser, Klopp’s men were by far the better team.

But once Leicester equalised – well…..the wheels fell off…….again.

Jurgen Klopp concedes title defence is over

Later in the day, in an interview with with Sky Sports News, Klopp was asked if he had conceded the title, to which he replied…….

“Yes. I can’t believe, but yes. I don’t think we can close the gap this year, to be honest. We have to win football games, and a large part of our game today was very good.”

If results go against Liverpool this weekend, they could finish the round of fixtures in 7th position. Their battle is now for a top 4 spot, which it has been for some time in all honesty.

In latest football betting, the Reds are now 4/9 for a Top 4 finish with Betfair.
