Liverpool have picked up two consecutive wins under Jurgen Klopp, and Jordon Ibe has explained to the official Liverpool website what one of the most important messages Klopp has given to his players has been.
Ibe said: “It was one of the most important things the new manager has said – we need to be a team who can be 2-0 down and know there is still time for us to get a goal.”
Liverpool have started showing real improvement under Klopp, picking up two wins from the last two games, and playing a more defined style of play than under former boss Brendan Rodgers.
Whilst Rodgers enjoyed success in his earlier career at Anfield, the last few months have been dull and inspiring, with fans, players and even Rodgers himself not really believing in the head coach.
They opted to play defensive football due to fears about their own goalscoring prowess, and this reduced any sort of confidence that once existed in the squad.
However, since Klopp’s arrival, he has looked to bring back this confidence, and Ibe has admitted that the German boss wants his players to always be fighting.
Klopp wants his team to be able to comeback from any situation they might be in, with the players confident they can score and get back in a game even if losing.
It has not taken long for Klopp to have a positive impact on Merseyside, and now that the wins have started coming, there is a sense that things can only continue to get better for Liverpool.
