Kenny Dalglish: There are no excuses for poor Liverpool season

Jurgen Klopp should make "no excuses" for Liverpool's poor 2020-21 season, according to Kenny Dalglish.

This season, the reigning English champions have fallen well short of the high expectations set in recent seasons.

Liverpool are seventh in the Premier League and trail Real Madrid 3-1 after the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final. They have already exited the FA Cup and EFL Cup.

Although Dalglish sympathizes with Klopp over the loss of key players such as Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez to injury for the majority of the season, he believes Liverpool should have done more.

"There are no excuses, but there are some reasons," he said.

"One of the biggest contributory factors was losing four players in the same position, because then that was the back four out of commission or certainly weaker than they were."

Dalglish won three titles in five seasons when he was Liverpool manager.
