Tony Cascarino says Liverpool fans will be disillusioned with what they’re hearing from Jurgen Klopp

Pundit Tony Cascarino has slammed Liverpool’s drop-off in form this season and has suggested fans will be becoming disillusioned with what Jurgen Klopp has been saying recently.

Speaking on TalkSPORT, the former Chelsea player was bewildered by the Reds’ performance against Wolverhampton Wanderers yesterday, exacerbated by the side’s huge slump in form this term.

“The manager now is spinning plates in many ways,” Cascarino said.

“He’s got loads of money in the bank, as in where he is as a manager, and the backing of Liverpool.

“[But] Liverpool fans are probably now starting to not believe what they are hearing [from Klopp] because it’s been so disastrous this season.

“The fallout has been incredible. Watching Liverpool now is like watching another team.”

Cascarino slams Liverpool’s form

Although the vast majority of supporters would back Klopp to retain his role as Liverpool boss, it’s understandable to see where Cascarino is coming from.

Over the summer, the manager constantly spouted that he was happy with his squad. Even in times of injury, he was content with the options at his disposal.

A last-minute blow to Jordan Henderson forced the Merseyside outfit into the transfer market, and the club brought Arthur Melo in on loan – which has been a total failure thus far.

Then, when the January window came around, fans urged the club to make numerous signings to help fix Klopp’s issues. However, although Cody Gakpo was brought in from PSV Eindhoven, not a single midfielder or defender was signed – despite the squad crying out for it.

The German continued to back his players, as he should, but to claim his side didn’t need reinforcements last month was purely negligent.

However, this is mainly on FSG, as they have starved Klopp of a decent transfer budget.

The Reds don’t look like getting things back on track anytime soon, so hopefully injured players like Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota are able to get back to full fitness in the near future and kick off a revolution at Anfield.
