Liverpool's owners have no plans to change the manager - no matter what happens for the remainder of the season.
The Sunday World says the faith of Fenway Sports Group in manager Jurgen Klopp, who has delivered the English title and Champions League to Anfield since 2019 has not wavered, with questions over his future privately dismissed as absurd.
The club's hierarchy rate Klopp as the best manager in the world. They consider him integral to the solution as the club looks to remedy what has gone so horribly wrong since being top of the Premier League on St Stephen's Day.
Liverpool's owners see the last two months as an anomaly interrupting five years of spectacular progress - the consequences of a season which has been contaminated by numerous external factors, not least the unprecedented number of injuries to key defenders and midfielders.
FSG's strategy has been consistent since Klopp was appointed and will not change even if the club loses its Champions League status.
