Sources: Major update on Klopp's future at Liverpool as FSG stance revealed

Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group will continue to back under-fire manager Jurgen Klopp, sources have told Football Insider.

The German has overseen a wretched campaign which leaves the team’s hopes of a top-four finish hanging by a thread.

The majority of Liverpool fans have stood steadfastly behind Klopp less than a year after he came close to spearheading the team to an unprecedented quadruple.

There have been suggestions from critics and observers that the manager has taken the club as far as he can.

However, that is not a stance believed to be shared by Boston-based owners FSG.

There is no suggestion they are having any doubts about Klopp, or his ability to turn around a dreadful campaign and rebuild the team.

FSG will continue to stand by the manager regardless of how the season pans out.

Liverpool are 10th in the Premier League after 20 games – 11 points adrift of a top-four finish.

The Reds’ loss against Wolves is their fourth in seven games across all competitions so far in 2023.

Klopp was despondent after the game at Molineux on Saturday (4 February) – even refusing to answer a question from The Athletic journalist James Pearce.

The German signed a four-year deal at Anfield last year (2022) as his previous deal was set to expire at the end of the 2023-24 season.

He has won the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup, and League Cup since taking the hot seat in 2015.

Liverpool made just one January signing despite a number of injury issues plaguing the squad – with forward Cody Gakpo joining from PSV Eindhoven.

Football Insider revealed on Sunday (5 February) that the Reds will listen to offers for defenders Joel Matip and Nat Phillips in the summer as they prepare for a substantial summer overhaul.

The Merseysiders have held preliminary takeover talks with the £373billion-valued Qatar Investment Authority after FSG welcomed new investment in 2022.
