It seems that the honeymoon period is well and truly over for Jurgen Klopp at Anfield.

The flamboyant German coach has gained the adulation of supporters on Merseyside for his passionate and hardworking style, but as of late fans are starting to question their manager’s bizarre decision making.

It’s well known that the Reds are in somewhat of defensive mess, conceding five goals in their opening two Premier League matches.

Despite the arrivals of Ragnar Klavan, and Joel Matip, there have been calls for Klopp to invest even more in defence between now and the end of the transfer window, in a bid to ensure Liverpool can compete for a top four place this season.

But rather than investing in new defenders, Jurgen Klopp is busy shipping his best defenders out of the club.

According to widespread reports, French defender Mamadou Sakho is closing in on a loan move to Stoke City.

Sakho, who was banned in April for failing a drugs test before Uefa dropped the case in July, will be allowed to restore his match sharpness elsewhere, having not played in a competitive game since the 4-0 win over Everton on 20 April.

The French defender is a fan favourite at Anfield, and given the club’s current defensive crisis, the decision to send Sahko out on loan has confused many on Merseyside.

Check out some Tweets from some very unhappy Liverpool fans below.
