Liverpool’s German boss Jurgen Klopp has admitted that he still cannot put his team’s 2-1 home loss to Crystal Palace behind him.

The former Borussia Dortmund manager described the start of his life at Anfield as “okay” but admitted Liverpool’s “f..king loss” to the Eagles still haunts him. “Until now it’s been okay. I’d really like to change my personality but I can’t forget this fucking loss against Crystal Palace. If we had won this maybe then I would have said it was more than okay,” he said to the reporters.

Klopp also revealed that it would have been better to coach Liverpool during the pre-season also, but insisted he is happy with the players’ progress till now. “I know that the most important time in a season is the pre-season,” he further said. “I came in October, so there was no time for this. But it’s okay. I think we have done not too bad until now.”

Liverpool replaced Brendan Rodgers with Jurgen Klopp earlier last month and has claimed excellent away wins over Chelsea and Manchester City in his first two months at Anfield.epl

With six wins and three draws, the charismatic German tactician has already garnered enough praise for transforming the side in his mould as fast as he can. Liverpool will face Southampton in the League Cup quarter-finals today.

Apart from adding the widest smile in Premier League Jurgen Klopp also has a distinctive laugh. He is very fond of exclaiming “Hah!” in the manner of a comedian who wants to express disbelief. With the likes of questions he is facing since arrival in England, now happens to be quite often. For instance, when the Reds boss was asked if his team remains a title contender this season, he just laughed out loud and smiled again when he thought about the subject of money to spend in the upcoming transfer window.

That’s how Klopp works. His reluctance to represent himself as the star of the show or making too many promises after taking charge of a new club, cannot make these questions irrelevant specially after  the massive win over Manchester City.
