Ex-Liverpool midfielder Hamann: Klopp doubts will soon be raised


Former Germany midfielder Dietmar Hamann fears the Jurgen Klopp era at Liverpool could be concluding.

The German head coach has been struggling to find his players' best form for much of this season.

The Reds are currently in tenth place in the Premier League, while they are already all but out of the title race.

After the Reds' 3-2 loss to Arsenal at the weekend, Hamann stated, per talkSPORT: “At some stage, I think we will have that discussion about the manager and I'm not sure how far we are off that.

“He said that he still feels that he's the right man to do it, but I see little things like Jordan Henderson midweek seeing his number going up and reluctantly taking his armband off and coming off, shaking his head.

“This is something that we haven't seen at Liverpool for five years. Maybe these are little signs that people have little problems with the team or even the manager.

“The dynamics at Liverpool are no different to anywhere else and if the results aren't there then the manager will come under pressure."

He added: “As a big team, you're always in transition but they've been at the top of their capacities for the last three or four years. What they achieved and what they did last year was second to none.

“I don't think that will be achieved again, to be within seven days of winning all four trophies and I think that psychologically, it was always going to be tough this season.

“If you look at Arsenal in the second half, they were everything that Liverpool were four or five years ago.

“They were breathtaking going forward. Every time that they did go forward you felt that something was going to happen.

“This Liverpool team looks tired, they look pedestrian and they just look flat. I'm not sure where the spark is going to come from because they've won games in the past.

“They beat Rangers a few days ago but they're obviously far superior to Rangers. I trust that they'll know where the spark is going to come from but whether it's the end of an era?

“I wouldn't write them off, but my imagination doesn't let me see where the spark is going to come from in the next few weeks."
