Klopp eventually decided against signing a new centre-back and his decision not to reinforce the defence has come in for criticism after recent mistakes at the back this season.

'Sign Virgil van Dijk in January, ' the fan shouts.

"If these problems could be solved by one player you can imagine we would have put all our money into it and say: "Let's do this". That's how I understand life.

They have countered their issues at the back with 16 goals at the opposite end of the field, but they will be forced to make do with those at their disposal until at least January after taking the decision not to land a centre-back over the summer.

Klopp's midweek assertion that his scouts had been unconvinced after watching potential alternatives to their main target Van Dijk about "500 million times" attracted scorn on social media with some fans complaining that the German was starting to sound like former manager Brendan Rodgers in his final days.

Klopp: No better defenders out there than the ones I have

"I believe in trust", said the 50-year-old, whose side host Burnley in the Premier League today.

"Oh yeah, sometimes they make bulls**t, and we are not happy".

'The captain is something the team-mates decide and something you have to deserve, ' Pellegrino said. I trust people until they give me an opportunity or a possibility not to trust them anymore. "It's my job to make sure we can perform as good as possible". When I came in we were ninth and now, 'ooofff.' We are really on a good way.

Klopp said the Croatia global is being unfairly singled out.

A 5-0 drubbing away to Manchester City highlighted their frailties at the back, and Dejan Lovren's poor performance against Sevilla in a 2-2 draw at Anfield on Wednesday night only fuelled more anger amongst numerous club's supporters. He's a man, he's a father of two kids. "I've seen much bigger mistakes in my life".
