Jerzy Dudek believes everyone at Liverpool is under pressure

Published Add your comment

Former Liverpool goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek believes every player at the club is under pressure, especially after the 3-0 loss to Manchester United.

Dudek was a key player in the Liverpool squad that won the 2004/05 Champions League final in Istanbul, proving to be the hero in the penalty shootout.

FourFourTwo reports Dudek saying: "I think they (Liverpool) missed Suarez, and because of that they're all under pressure. The boss, the players, but they need to stick together, working hard, especially now before Christmas, and try to sort things out very quickly.

"Liverpool, when they fight altogether they get results. When they have lack of fighters on the pitch they are struggling to get results, they need everyone on board and fight to the end."

The former shot-stopper is deeply concerned about Liverpool's current position and fears many players may be battling it out for their careers; especially the new signings.

New signings

Liverpool signed eight players in the summer transfer window, and not one of them has managed to make an impact for their new club as of yet. Mario Balotelli, Emre Can, Lazar Markovic, Alberto Moreno, Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert and Dejan Lovren have all failed to leave a lasting impression.

Despite how much quality the new signings may possess, they have yet to prove influential as Liverpool have produced their worst ever start to a Premier League campaign.

"With the new signings, you never know what's going to happen," Dudek added.

High expectations

"You think they're good because they had a very good spell at their previous club, and you hope they'll play as well for Liverpool. But they needed time, sometimes they love to play, some will never play.

"Liverpool is a special club with a special coach as well, with very high expectations and some of the players need more time, but I don't know if they will have that time because Liverpool needs results straight away."

The Europa League draw saw Liverpool drawn to face Turkish side Besiktas on the 19th and 26th of February 2015; Dudek believes Europa League success would be great for Liverpool following their premature Champions League exit.
