Liverpool Fans Blame Klopp for Tactical Suicide vs Bournemouth

Liverpool had a great opportunity to strengthen their 3rd place in the table but failed to do so after earning only a single point against Bournemouth.

The Merseysiders suffered an early set back when Wijnaldum gifted Afobe the opening goal. Klopp’s men stepped up and bounced back to level the game before half time thanks to Philippe Coutinho.

Moreover, in the 59th minute of the game, Divock Origi headed the ball in the net from close range to give Liverpool the lead.

The Reds were in a dominant position and the Cherries were not getting a moment’s rest but then Jurgen Klopp made a terrible tactical decision. He took his best attacking player, Coutinho, off the field and replaced the Brazilian with a defender in the form of Matip.

Liverpool were in the driving seat but then went into a reverse gear by playing five at the back and inviting pressure.

The decision was absolutely baffling knowing that the team has been shaky at the back all season. The Reds do not know how to sit back and defend, they were all over the place and eventually conceded in the 87th minute of the game, much to despair of the home crowd.

Liverpool supporters were furious on social media and blamed Klopp for the tactical suicide. Here are a few reactions.

    I Have Never Been A Fan Of Klopp, He Can Go And Eat Excrete For All I Care Unless He Recall Sakho. Does It Mean He Is The Devil Incarnate For Not Having A Forgiving Mind? What Punishment Should We Apportion By Weighing Up Klopp And Sakho’s Offences? Matip On The Bench And Shaky Lovren In The Field? Removing The Mighty Coutinho? Defender To Replace An Attacker? Can’t Sturrige Play 30min Football Again? To Hell With His Excuses. The Time Is At Hand When The Players Will No Longer Play For Him At The Detriment Of Our Great Club, Liverpool Fc. Long Live Liverpool Fc! YNWA!!!

      Agree with all you wrote except Sakho. For God’s sake, when will Lfc fans stop craving below average and average players for the 5-time champions of Europe? Sakho and his likes at Liverpool are the reason we now compete with below the table teams. If he can fit into Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal, United and City, then why Liverpool? Please, leave him at Palace where he. belongs.
