Liverpool are now only FOUR wins away from claiming their first ever Premier League title – and their first league championship in 30 years – but that’s just not enough for some fans.
Or, perhaps, just this one…
The Reds were made to sweat for their 26th league win from 27 games this season as they came back from 2-1 down to beat West Ham 3-2 on Monday night.
The result meant Jurgen Klopp’s side stay 22 points clear at the top of the table with 11 games left, as their incredible record-breaking season continues.
But Liverpool supporter Ross was not happy with his beloved side’s performance or his manager on Monday night, and told talkSPORT he is ‘really worried’ going into their Champions League round-of-16 second leg tie vs Atletico Madrid.
The Reds suffered only their third defeat of the entire campaign last week as they lost 1-0 in the first leg of their last-16 clash in Spain, as Klopp’s all-out attacking side were suffocated by Diego Simeone’s defensive masterclass.
Liverpool were expected to blow West Ham off the park in their following league outing, with the Hammers struggling in a relegation battle, but the London club turned up for a battle and took the Reds all the way to the wire.
And, incredibly, Ross the Red claims this season, this unbelievable season, will be a FAILURE if Liverpool don’t successfully defend their European crown.
And he really is not happy with Mr Klopp.
“I’m just really worried,” he ranted on talkSPORT’s Sports Bar. “We’ve got the best goalkeeper, best defender and best attacker in the world, and we’re not blowing teams like West Ham off the park? Are we for real?
“To go unbeaten? Don’t tell me this Premier League is up to standard, this is the worse Premier League I’ve ever seen in my life!
“If we don’t win the Champions League this season, it’s a failure, and Jurgen Klopp needs to answer some questions!”
Like us, Sports Bar hosts Andy Goldstein and Jason Cundy couldn’t quite believe what they were hearing, and even accused Ross of being an Everton fan on the wind-up.
But no, it appears that is his genuine opinion as a Liverpool supporter.
Well, I suppose we’re all entitled to one, even if it is as utterly mad as this.
A stunned Cundy replied: “What you on about? This is a wind up, mate! Come on, you’re winding us up aren’t you? Are you an Everton fan, Ross?”
Goldstein: “No, he isn’t, he’s phoned up before.”
Cundy: “There’s no way you’re a Liverpool fan. You’re phoning up moaning about Klopp? Come on, admit now that you’re a bluenose, aren’t you.”
But Ross replied: “NO! We are the best team in England by an absolute mile.”
Cundy: “Why are you moaning then?”
Ross: “Because I don’t want to just be the best team in England, the Premier League isn’t everything!”
