Carragher backs under-fire Jurgen Klopp amid Liverpool's dire run

The Reds were dismantled by Wolverhampton at the Molineux Stadium on Saturday, losing their sixth away match of the season. Despite Liverpool's poor season, Jamie Carragher believes there's nobody better for the managing role than the German.

The former



and England defender Jamie Carragher told

Sky Sports

after Liverpool's 3-0 thrashing at the hands of Wolves:

"I would change everybody else at that football club before I changed Jurgen Klopp.

"When he came in, Liverpool were sixth or seventh in the league and he's taken them to where they've been in the last few years, he's proven he can do that. I'd like to see him do that again. I'm sure he will.

"If people are talking about a change of manager… any manager coming into Liverpool would need to rebuild.

"I don't think it's a case of just buying one player – people keep saying, 'bring Jude Bellingham in'. I think with each week, it feels like it's bigger than one or two [new] players, it might have to be four or five.

"Any manager at Liverpool at the start of next season would have to do that, Jurgen Klopp has produced miracles at times.

"You can question Jurgen in terms of how it's got to this, he's part of that. But for the recruitment team, how did Liverpool go from almost winning four trophies last season to being 10th in the league now?

"For the start of next season, I don't think there's anyone any Liverpool fan would rather have in the dugout than Jurgen Klopp."

Sitting tenth in the Premier League, Liverpool is as close to the relegation zone as they are to the top four.


They look a million miles off where they've been for the last few years,"

he said.

"You're trying to work out why, and we've all been doing that all season, but it doesn't feel like it's getting better.

"Klopp's tried everything in terms of playing more experienced players, playing younger players, changing formation. Nothing's working.

"It almost feels as if they've got to crawl and hang on, get to the summer and sort it out in the transfer market."
