Klopp has come under heavy crticism for fielding certain players regularly who seem to be out of place at Liverpool.

"I heard I'm too loyal but I am not too loyal. The problem is too complex. If you can then go out and bring in another player to replace him, then it makes sense.

"But if you cannot bring anyone in, you cannot take anyone out. I am not too loyal. At Dortmund before I left, I said something had to change here - either a management change or a lot of other things needed to change," said Klopp.

Klopp added that he wants to change the current situation at Liverpool and be at the club for as long as he is wanted.

"I will be here for as long as I am wanted. If no one tells me to go, I will not go. It is something for the future, in the summer, not now. The only thing I want is to fix this situation - that is all.

"It is clear that there will be an important period of change. There have been injuries, but no one is interested in that. The boys feel the responsibility, but we're sticking together with all we have," concluded Klopp.

Liverpool lost 3-0 to Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League over the weekend on January 14, 2023.

Liverpool has only made one signing in January and their performance over the weekend said it all, they need to recruit more players.
