Following the sacking of top managers in England in the current season due to streak of poor performance, Jurgen Kloop of Liverpool has revealed that he is not afraid of being sacked by the club.

8th on the log with 42 points, Liverpool are in one of the lowest form in the recent seasons especially under the German tactician who joined the club some seven years ago.

Speaking ahead of Tuesday’s league clash against Chelsea who sacked Graham Potter as its head Coach on Sunday, Klopp believes that the club’s recent performance couldn’t have kept him in his job but his past achievements.

“I’m aware of the fact that I am sitting here because of the past, not because of what we did this season,” he told a news conference on Monday. “We have smart owners — they know about the situation. If this was my first season, it would be slightly different.

“I’m not afraid [of the sack], no. There’s no need for being afraid, I need to deliver. I am not here as a mural on house walls, I am here to deliver.

“I am fully in — but we have to sort this. We cannot just continue playing how we do from time to time. I am really disappointed about us that we do this but it happens. We have to find a way out.

“What can I say about that [the sackings]? The elephant in the room is probably why am I still sitting here in this crazy world? Last man standing.”

The departures of Potter, Conte and Rodgers meant a record 12 managers have been sacked in England’s top-flight this season.

He pointed out that the number of managers sacked in the current season is “awful,” but added that it is “part of the business.”

“I think both clubs are not in the spots where they expect to be,” he said. “I can not really say a lot more about it. Let’s say I know them well, I respect them a lot. I like both.

“When I met them they were really really good people and fantastic managers both of them. But still things can go the wrong way and then decision-makers at the club think they have to change and they change.

“We all accept that part of the business and that’s it pretty much. But that’s it, its a strange week I would say.”

Liverpool face Chelsea on Tuesday before hosting league leaders, Arsenal on Sunday.
