Liverpool boss Klopp: Injuries reason for struggles, not excuse

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists their injury crisis is reality - not an excuse.

Klopp says he's never experienced anything similar in his management career.

He stated, "The problems we had this year were something completely new for me, never in my life, and I've been doing this job for 20 years, I had to change my defensive line every single week.

"People may say that's an excuse. But I don't care. We don't use it as an excuse. It is the explanation for why things have changed for us."

As a result, the 53-year-old is convinced that the Reds will master the sporting crisis.

“The internal cohesion is outstanding. We're not mad at each other or pointing fingers at each other. That's not the case. We are a complete unit. One hundred percent. "
