It has been a fairly good week for Liverpool supporters. After securing an impressive 1-1 draw against German outfit Borussia Dortmund in their Europa League quarter-final first leg clash on Thursday, the Reds emphatically beat Stoke City by four goals to one in the Premier League on Sunday. 

Under Jurgen Klopp's guidance, the Reds are finally coming to prominence and things are finally starting to take shape. 

Of course, there's still a long way to go for the club - they have failed to really climb the Premier League table - but there most definitely appears to be a plan of intent in the pursuit of long-term success.

However, there's every chance that Klopp will move a couple of players on at the end of the season. In fact, it appears that one man may not have a role to play on Merseyside ahead of the 2016/17 campaign. 

That man is Jordon Ibe. The England Under-21 winger has failed to produce the goods recently and has well and truly lost his first-team place.

Ibe future in doubt 

While the likes of Sheyi Ojo and Kevin Stewart were named in the Liverpool side for their clash against Stoke City on Sunday, Ibe failed to claim a place in the squad. It has been a fall from grace for the 20-year-old, who since the start of February, has been limited to 55 minutes of Premier League action. 

And he may well have put his future at the club in doubt after a number of strange actions on social media. 

Taking to Instagram and Twitter, the youngster completely removed any mention of Liverpool in his bio, while he also sent a cryptic message. 

Here's the Instagram message he posted: 

Liverpool fans react 

Unsurprisingly, Liverpool fans were less than impressed. A number of the club's supporters slammed Ibe for his behaviour and took to Twitter to make their feelings clear. 

Here are the best tweets: 

Tricky time 

It's certainly been a difficult period for Ibe, who should be getting his head down in his pursuit of redemption. Ibe, of course, represented England Under-21s at the end of last month but was sent off in the side's 1-1 draw in Switzerland.

Following the game, manager Gareth Southgate insisted that Ibe was suffering from a crisis of confidence. 

As per the Liverpool Echo, Southgate stated:  “I think players, especially at Jordon’s age, go through peaks and troughs.

“He doesn’t look full of confidence at the minute: we have got to try and help him get to the level that we think we can achieve. He doesn’t look like he is in a rhythm.

“That is disappointing for him but no reason that he can’t find it again.”
