Jurgen Klopp gets backing of Liverpool owners FSG despite torrid run of form including six-game losing run at home

LIVERPOOL'S owners Fenway Sports Group reportedly still have full support in Jurgen Klopp despite the club's shocking form.

The Premier League champions lost 1-0 to Fulham on Sunday in what was their sixth consecutive home defeat at Anfield.

The Reds sit eighth in the table -seven points behind fourth-placed Chelsea – and are in real danger of missing out on Champions League qualification.

It seems likely that the only way they will be playing in Europe's premier competition next term is by winning the trophy this season.

But according to the Daily Mail, Klopp retains the backing of FSG who still want him to lead their team.

They state that Klopp's relationship with FSG's president Mike Gordon remains strong.

And it has even been suggested that FSG believe Liverpool are in a strong enough position to deal with the financial implications of missing out on the Champions League.

Klopp, 53, revealed last week that only Manchester City with their Abu Dhabi money tree are capable of winning the title every season.

He said: "If your problems are not getting bigger than solutions, you can have it.

“But it’s the most difficult league to stay on top for a long, long period, in England.


“It could happen. There is one club that maybe has everything for it — the quality of players, the manager, the money and everything — and that is Man City.

“All the rest have to fight with all you have to get close. When you are close enough you can maybe do what we showed last year.”

And Klopp admitted after the Fulham clash that he is suffering one of the worst spells of his managerial career.

Liverpool – who have picked up 36 points fewer at this stage of the campaign compared to last term – face RB Leipzig in their crucial Round of 16 second leg tie on Wednesday.
