‘It’s also something psychological’ – Thiago gives explanation to poor Liverpool form!

Liverpool are sitting in the 9th position as things stand with a game in hand over the teams above. Jurgen Klopp has been trying to get his team to perform at their usual level but something seems to be off about this Liverpool side. 

Liverpool’s Mentality?

Liverpool challenged for 4 trophies last season. They won the Carabao Cup and FA Cup, while missing out on the Premier League on the last day of the season and losing the Champions League final to Real Madrid. It has certainly taken a toll on the players as they seem to be hungover from last season’s campaign.

Thiago has told reporters when asked if Liverpool’s energy-sapping efforts last season have contributed to struggles in the present: “For sure. It’s not just about physical stuff. It’s also something psychological. We were so close to winning everything. We just touched it but it went away. Last season I had one of the greatest seasons I’ve had in my life. This season is not one of the best, but it doesn’t matter. It’s a season, it’s a challenge. I think we have great quality and great guys to sort it out and we will do that.”

Thiago is convinced that their best form can be rediscovered. The Spain international midfielder added: “We are in a great position for Champions League and FA Cup. We are not in the position we want in the Premier League, but we are there. We are now in our reality where we have to go game by game. Trying to add those three points will help us to be as high as possible. Our aim is the next game. It’s not about to be in the top four or to be in Europa League. We just think about next game.”

Liverpool will need a turnaround quick and fast as they will play Real Madrid once again in the Champions League in the Round of 16.
