Jurgen Klopp has dismissed rumours that he could quit Liverpool or even take a break after a difficult few months for the Reds boss.
The German boss has been dealing with the death of his mother Elisabeth, with Klopp unable to travel to Germany for her funeral.
On top of that, the Reds have been struggling on the pitch with Liverpool losing their last three Premier League matches, while they were knocked out of the FA Cup by arch-rivals Man Utd.
When asked how he was by reporters, Klopp replied: “There is a lot stuff going around, politics, private things. But I’m okay. Absolutely okay. We had training and an analysing meeting before that. And we are close to flying to Budapest for the first time.”
A banner was put up by fans outside Anfield over the weekend to show support for Klopp after wild rumours that he could quit the club.
On the banner and those rumours, Klopp said: “I heard about both. I don’t feel I need special support in the moment but it is nice (to have it). Rumours of me quitting or taking break? Neither (is true).
“I don’t need a break. Everyone knows privately it has been tough time but it wasn’t just last three weeks, it was longer before that. We always deal with it as a family 100%.”
Klopp added: “Thanks for all the support, people tell me about it. I am very grateful for it. But they can think about other things as nobody needs to worry about me.”
