Jurgen Klopp has taken the blame for Liverpool’s shock home loss to Burnley on Thursday night.
Liverpool’s 68-match unbeaten run at home in the Premier League was surprisingly ended by the Clarets, with Ashley Barnes’ late penalty all that separated the two sides.
The defeat means the Reds’ hopes of retaining the title have taken a huge knock as they currently sit six points behind leaders Manchester United.
Klopp’s side had a five-point cushion when they beat Crystal Palace 7-0 on December 19 but no win in their five league matches since has seen them slip down to fourth.
Klopp shouldered all the responsibility for their latest setback, insisting it was his fault Burnley got the better of them.
He told Sky Sports: “We lost a game which I think was actually impossible to lose but we did.
“And that’s my fault because my job is to make sure that the boys have the right feelings, the right amount of confidence… and that obviously didn’t work out.
“We created some situations but in the final moment we did not make the right decision and that’s the problem.
“It’s always my fault. The things that don’t work are my fault, the things that work are a credit to the players… if I make clear which movements make sense and we don’t do them, I need to make it clearer.
“I can’t believe we lost it but it’s the truth and we have to accept that.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
