BACK TO BUDAPEST: Reds hope for Hungarian salvation as Leipzig game moved from Anfield


A move to Budapest might be ideal for Jürgen Klopp's Liverpool as their UEFA Champions League second leg with RB Leipzig won't be played at Anfield.

The Reds have lost six consecutive league games at home for the first time in their history following a 1-0 defeat the hands of Fulham last weekend.

Budapest hosted the first leg between Liverpool and Leipzig in which Klopp's team won 2-0.

They'll take that advantage into the second leg, with the two goals acting as away goals despite the game being played at a neutral venue.

Klopp made several changes in the weekend defeat so his side should be fresher heading into the tie.

Liverpool have nothing else to play for other than the Champions League now with the top four effectively out of their reach.

One of the big selection decisions for Klopp is if he will play Fabinho at centre back or central midfield.

The German was coy on where he will pick the Brazilian, who missed out on Sunday to prevent risking another injury.

"I don’t know with Fab. We have to see," said Klopp. "Having Fab back is in general good.

"We didn’t play him obviously [against Fulham] from the beginning because just after a long time being out and then two games in a row, we thought it makes not too much sense.

" Now he is ready. But if he will play centre-half or midfield, that decision you will see tomorrow."


The German national team job


Germany's long-standing coach Joachim Löw announced this week that he will step down from the national team after the Euro's this summer.

Obviously, this led to questions of whether Klopp would be interested in taking over as his Liverpool team continue to perform poorly.

Yet Klopp rebuked that notion with a simple answer - no.

"If I’m available for the job of the coach for the German national team in the summer? No. After the summer? No," he told the press.

"I have three years left at Liverpool this summer, don’t I? It’s a simple statement, a simple situation: you sign a contract and you would normally try to stick to that contract, don’t you?"

Klopp will hope his team can advance to the quarter-finals to end the talk about him leaving the club he wants to spend the next three years at.

Otherwise, he may be looking for new employment in the summer if the club's owners deem it neccessary.
