Jurgen Klopp says he can't 'f****** forget' Crystal Palace defeat

Jurgen Klopp has hit the ground running at Liverpool since taking over from Brendan Rodgers in October.

The former Borussia Dortmund boss has overseen six wins and three draws in 10 games since he took charge, including major wins against Manchester City and Chelsea that have moved the Reds to within touching distance of the top four.

But what's on Klopp's mind? Not the wins, but his single loss as Liverpool boss, against Crystal Palace.

The German suffered his only defeat since he took over at Anfield last month as Alan Pardew's side ran out 2-1 winners thanks to a late strike from Scott Dann.

Speaking ahead of Liverpool's Capital One Cup quarter-final showdown against Southampton, Klopp was asked to assess his first 10 games in charge, and his answer was priceless.

'Sometimes I would really like to change my personality but I can't forget this f****** loss against Crystal Palace,' he said. 'If we had won this, I would say it was okay.'

Liverpool fans have taken to Klopp instantly thanks to his emotional antics on the touchline and offbeat comments in the press. In the same press conference, the former Mainz boss told a journalist to 'cool down' during one exchange, and he recently hit the headlines for arguing with a member of Chelsea's coaching staff during the Reds' 3-1 win.

In just eight weeks on Merseyside, Klopp has been able to revitalise Liverpool, moving them up to within six points of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League.

The 48-year-old made his name at Dortmund by deploying a high-intensity, pressing style - although he admits he is trying to implement his philosophy at Liverpool slowly in order to avoid any problems, 

I think we've done not too bad until now,' Klopp said. 'We give as much information as we could, as we should. With information, if I would say every day all the things I know, it is for sure too much.

Do you think Klopp can guide Liverpool into the top four this season?
