Anfield Alert: Klopp confirms 'uncomfortable situation' could force him to leave 'Liverpool'

It's now two seasons at Liverpool without a trophy, and Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is acutely aware that he needs to start delivering palpable success sooner rather than later.

Speaking to Sport1 on Monday, Klopp hinted that Liverpool could be his last job in football, and further admitted:

"If I fulfil my contract at Liverpool then there is a good chance I will have won something here. I could be in an uncomfortable situation if we do not win anything. People expect Liverpool to win trophies."

Klopp is right - despite the Reds' regular failure to qualify for the Champions League, the club's fans still expect trophies, but the burden of expectation is part and parcel of being the manager of Liverpool.

One thing's for sure: Klopp will be under intense pressure next season to win a trophy, and so he should be. Three years without a trophy for one of the world's alleged top managers is surely inconceivable, and I doubt that FSG had a 3-year trophy drought in mind when they hired Klopp.

After all, Brendan Rodgers got the bullet after failing to win a trophy during his three year spell, and that's despite coming within a whisker of winning the Premier League in his second season (something that Klopp is unlikely to emulate this year).

What is Liverpool's best chance of a trophy next season?
