Jurgen Klopp’s future will be under the spotlight if he goes another season without a trophy, Liverpool legend John Toshack believes. Klopp steered Liverpool into the final of the Champions League last season, and the Reds have followed that up by making their best start to a Premier League campaign with 33 points from 13 games.

But the Liverpool boss has failed to land a trophy in his three years at Anfield and former Liverpool favourite Toshack feels the German must do that this term to make life easier for himself on Merseyside.
The thought of Klopp being under pressure is hard to fathom, but Toshack says a club like Liverpool need to be winning trophies. “If Liverpool don’t win a trophy this year then they’ve got a decision to make (about Klopp),” former Real Madrid and Wales manager Toshack said.
“Things look really good at the moment, but this is Klopp’s third full season at Liverpool and this is the acid test for him. You can be unlucky not to win a trophy, but at the top clubs that’s what matters. “It’s such a fine dividing line, but when you’re at a club like Liverpool that’s what it’s all about.”
