Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp must have sent a message across suggesting that he is weak when it comes to chasing multiple trophies in a single season.
The conclusion came following a 2-0 loss to Chelsea in the fifth round of the FA Cup, which eventually made the Blues reach the quarter-final at the expense of the European Champions.
Liverpool are in comfortable lead at the top of the premier league table with 22 points ahead of Manchester City and with just 10 matches to end the season. That should at least give Klopp the confidence to pursue a second title through the FA Cup, but he lost that chance.
That loss means their hope of winning a second title has been jeopardized after they were edged out from the EFL Cup, which City eventually won by beating Aston Villa 2-1 in the final.
In the Champions League, they currently suffer a first-leg 1-0 lead deficit against stubborn Athletico Madrid, and it obviously would become an uphill task for them to scale through going by their current performances.
Klopp’s managerial career which started since 2001 with Mainz have recorded only but 9 titles, and the German have only won two domestic titles in a single season while in charge at Dortmund in the 2011-2012 season when he won the German Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal.
Compared with the likes of Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola in terms of winning multiple trophies in a single season, it is easy to conclude that the German may not really be success.
