START HASN'T SPOOKED KLOPP; LIVERPOOL v SOUTHAMPTON.
JURGEN KLOPP has warned Liverpool fans he can't create a "genius plan" when his side are not yet Bayern or Barcelona.
But that does not demoralise the straight-talking German, who insisted that had he wanted an easy life he would not have cut short his break from football to become Reds boss.
Anfield witnessed the stark reality of the team's plight on Thursday when an ineffective display allowed Rubin Kazan to escape with a draw despite being down to 10 men for 54 minutes.
With Klopp, right, hailed in some overexcited quarters as the new messiah ahead of his first home game, an air of crushing disappointment settled around the stands. Yet as his side gear up for tomorrow's clash with Southampton he insists he learned nothing he was not already aware of.
Klopp said: "You all know football is not the game where you can have the genius plan without Barcelona or Bayern Munich players "It's a hard job but I knew it would be. If I wanted it the easy way then I would have stayed on holiday."
