The German press are curious to see why Kloppo's Liverpool are not yet firing on all cylinders and have endured such a miserable December.
He has an explanation for his countrymen. It is the wind that is to blame.
Klopp told Das Bild that he has been forced to adapt his style because of the English weather.
The English game is not faster than the German game. Perhaps there are a few more sprints. But there is a different style of football here, partially due to the weather
The wind can be quite extreme in England. We are not familiar with that in Germany and you have to keep things simple.
Stoke's first goal against Manchester United was a perfect example of extreme winds. Players who are not from the UK have to get used to the winds. I have to adapt my style as a result as well.
Often, you are forced to keep things simple. And there are a lot more duels for the second ball here, and more duels in general. That makes the game even more intense.
Liverpool have slumped into mid-table in the past few weeks and have won only four from ten under new management.
