      I'll sum it up for you.
      Question from press to VVD....What will happen with your career post Klopp?...Answer..."I don't know"
      It's nothing dressed up as news.

      Yep he could mean anything with that comment.

      New manager could come in and want to move him on. No one knows.

      The media as we all know as experts, at this sort of thing. They need to be treated with contempt. Although sometimes easier said than done.

      Not sure if this shows in England, but he says he was taken out of context

      See lots of negativity on other players threads after
      todays loss. Easier targets I suppose.

      He was absolutely horrendous today and played a huge negative part in all 3 goals.

      He was lucky at weekend to escape 2 penalty shouts the second one being nailed on. He needs to do much better. He is better than that

      Agreed mate.

      Was all over the shop.

      Has come out and taken full responsibility as he should have. Captain of the Club and our "Best Defender" should be doing a hell of a lot better then that!

      I think part of why people are not criticizing him as much as some others is that he's been a huge part of the run we've been on this season. Him Allisson, Mo and TAA. With that said, he's been playing some horrid  stuff for two games in a row now and today it cost us.

      Edit: I said VVD, Alisson, TAA and Mo. To be honest we could add at least a couple of other names who have been huge for us. Those are just the 4 names that jumped to my mind while writing the post. Also puts things in perspective. One bad game, but this team has been playing brilliant for a while now.

      More wins in first 250 games than any other player in Liverpool's history. 171.

      That is a very impressive stat.

      In fact most of Jürgen's players top the list.

      And so unlucky with his header smacking the crossbar.

      He’s the best centre half I’ve ever seen play football.

      I’m prepared to die on that hill.

      Our captain coming in clutch!

      I mentioned before I was unsure about him being captain with his performances potentially declining but he has shown why I know nothing.

      His interview after the game was telling too, he was so proud of the team, that kind of leadership will do wonders.

      Back to his best chats, I thought ( like most ) his injury to Pickford put paid to him producing his best ever again, may of lost a yard but still world class.

      He’s so fit and strong - can see him staying at this level for years to come.

      MOTM for me.

      Outstanding Captains effort

      So glad he and we didn't get robbed and he got the winner exactly the same way as his ridiculously disallowed goal was. Kizmit I tell ya!

      Not seen his interview but at face value the comments he made seem quite scathing of his teammates while apparently not taking any responsibility himself. I know the media can misrepresent things so will need to listen to it myself later. Anyone seen it?

      For me that was his worst game in a long time , some said he could hold his head high but not for me

      Also he is captain and I’m not sure if he has that same level of respect etc that Henderson did
