Gary Neville believes Jurgen Klopp’s lack of composure on the touchline could cost Liverpool the title
Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville thinks Jurgen Klopp’s lack of composure on the touchline could cost Liverpool in this gruelling title race.
The Reds are currently joint-top in table, just behind on goal difference, but have a game in hand which they will play today against Manchester United.
The wait for the league title has been pretty long for the Merseysiders (29 years), and the expectation is upon the current team to deliver the goods.
Klopp is known passion for the game, and he was recently heavily by FA for commenting about the referees.
Neville, who has won Premier Leagues for United, feels that the German needs to be a calming influence in the team if they are to win the title.
“It’s absolutely critical that Klopp retains his composure.
“Because they haven’t won the league for so long and it’s a club that has been built on championship successes, there is a level of desperation to get one over the line.
“It’s always going to be difficult to get that first one. I lived through it as a Man Utd fan in the early 90s.
“Klopp needs to remain composure because if he loses his temper or gets emotional, that will just rebound.”
After playing Manchester United today, Liverpool have a home league game against Watford in three days time.
