Unhappy Klopp wants more from “unstable”Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp has told fans and players that his side are “not stable” and “far away from perfect” ahead of their upcoming clash with the Irons on Sunday.

Klopp insisted that Liverpool are a long way from being complete in their rebuild despite a decent a start to the season.

He said: “We decided last year already that we have to change a lot – but that we want to change it for good and not because we have to.

“Yeah, I’m really excited about that and still am. That’s it. We are really not there, we are not stable yet, so many things not – but we are a lot of things already. A lot of exciting moments in the games and I think that’s a good start, not more. But as a start, it’s absolutely OK.”

Klopp made a host of changes for the trip to LASK but found his side trailing once again for the third game in a row, but once again they were able to mount a comeback and an improved second-half performance saw them through to a comfortable victory – but the German boss will be wary of the team continuing to concede the opening goal in games.

He is looking for a really improved performance than the won at Wolves where despite winning he said:

” We played a really bad half and a very good half and turned it around again. Again, it’s not what you plan, it’s not what you want. But when you have it, you have to go through it and that’s what we did.

“So, it shows just the boys already together in a manner and in an extent we probably didn’t expect that early. That’s it. I cannot make any kind of estimate at all how it will look in the next four or five weeks. The only thing what I can do is work extremely hard to make it as positive as somehow possible.”
