Jurgen Klopp thinks that sometimes “you need a punch in the face” and that Liverpool have had a “few” already this season.
The Reds beat Leicester 3-2 on Saturday following a run of four matches in all competitions without a victory – including a heavy 5-0 loss on the road at Manchester City – as you can see at this website.
But Klopp is pleased with how his players have reacted to recent setbacks and he says he wants to “improve” his players.
“I know we need results,” Klopp said. “I like this team. Maybe nobody else likes it, I really like it and I want to improve it together.
“Sometimes you need a punch in the face and we have had already a few – not too hard. [Manchester] City was hard, that was the only one.
“We were not really on the floor, but we always got up. We are here and we play good football. I like the shape we play.”
