Liverpool boss Klopp: As soon as he wants, Mourinho can walk back into managementby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says sacked Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho can quickly jump back into management.Klopp says the 55-year-old losing his job is not as serious as it would be for a coach in the lower divisions.“I have to say, on our level – and it’s not that I don’t feel for him or whatever – if a manager got the sack in the Championship or in League One or League Two, that’s a bad moment, because you don’t know if they will get another job and stuff like that,” he said.“If Jose wants to have another job, he has it in two days. That’s really easy.”Klopp claims Mourinho is still “an outstanding manager”, because of everything he has achieved.“He has all my respect,” he said. “He was unbelievably successful.“Nobody can take away from him all the things he won and I wish he has that in his mind when he leaves and not a few other things, which happened in the last few months.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

Klopp agent: Weather could drive him away from Liverpoolby Carlos Volcanoa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveThe agent of Jurgen Klopp admits he’s unsettled at Liverpool due to the local weather.Marc Kosicke says the German will consider his options in 2022.”Jurgen’s contract is still valid until 2022 and it is an open secret that the club would like to extend,” Kosicke told Spox.”We still have a little time for that. We must wait and see how everything develops and whether climate change will bring better weather to England or only to Germany.”One should not underestimate it [bad weather annoying Klopp], anyway. I remember that in November or December, Liverpool first asked for a contract extension. I said: ‘Let’s wait’.”Ulla [Klopp’s wife] and Jurgen get up in the morning and it’s dark. When they meet again in the evening, it is also dark or it is grey and there is drizzle.”During the winter break in Germany, if the weather is really bad, the clubs go on vacation for two weeks, then come back and fly directly to the training camp in the sun for several days.”During this time, the coaches in England sometimes have to prepare for up to 13 games. They are already exhausted and it’s not so easy.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say

But the England international insists the team is still reaching its full potential.Wilson said to reporters: “I think we are only playing at 60 per cent.”We have a lot more to come individually and collectively. We will be working hard on that to make sure we improve over the coming weeks.”There’s key players missing but also, the ones who are playing – including myself – we’ve still got a lot more to give.”We are nowhere near where we can be performing at our best, but we are getting results at the moment which is a positive sign.”To go three unbeaten is good. It would have been good to get three wins on the bounce on Saturday. It’s definitely a missed opportunity.”

Ex-Chelsea keeper Schwarzer convinced by Mount potentialby Paul Vegas14 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Chelsea goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer is convinced by the potential of Mason Mount.Schwarzer has now backed the midfielder to continue his rise, and is keen to see how he interacts with his more experience team-mates during the rest of the season.”I think Mount has done really well so far,” Schwarzer told Goal.”He has been exciting to watch. He is a big talent, he played very well in the Championship last season under Frank [Lampard] so he knows him really well.”I like so much about him. The biggest thing is that movement, dropping the shoulder, taking on a player and caressing the ball.“His link-up play is very good. His understanding with Tammy Abraham is very good. I like his evolution.”It will be interesting to see what he is like when more experienced players come into the team like Willian and Pedro, if there’s more consistency and how he links up with them.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
