Liverpool icon Jamie Carragher has insisted that the Anfield hierarchy should remain loyal to Jurgen Klopp after yet another shock result.

Klopp arguably felt his low point as when his were dismantled by defending champions Real Madrid at Anfield on Tuesday night.

Liverpool took a two-goal lead in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie, but they breathed a sigh of relief and paid the ultimate price - the La Liga giants hit five times on target. The Reds slumped to a heavy 5-2 defeat

Carragher was the most disappointed - well, certainly the most outspoken - of all the pundits who approached Liverpool after the game, describing the result as a "mess" and taking aim at everyone, especially Virgil. Van Dyke.

Carragher publicly criticized Liverpool after the game - but insisted that no matter how bad things got, the Reds should stick with their beloved manager because he is irreplaceable.

"Liverpool is a unique football club in how they deal with managers," the former  Liverpool defender said. 

"I don't think there are many clubs around the world like Liverpool,"

"When Liverpool win the manager is the star it is all about the manager, and I like that about our club because it always gives the manager a sense of power and there is not too much panic from within the club that the manager would go.

"For instance, when Rafa Benitez first came the first season was really poor - I know Benitez won the Champions League - but in terms of the league, there were a lot of defeats.

"Gerrard Houllier was the same, but it was never a question as to whether that manager would go whereas if someone comes into Chelsea or even Manchester United with Erik ten Hag at the start of the season, people are questioning things.

"That would never happen at Liverpool really. I think it only happened once and that was Roy Hodgson and that wasn't just the results it just wasn't a right fit, but no, Jurgen Klopp will see his contract out.

"I'm convinced of that and I don't think there will be any Liverpool fan anywhere that would question that. The first thing for me is you don't change the manager you change the players.

"I think Dortmund found that out when he and Dortmund parted ways in their last season and I always remember an interview with a Dortmund chief saying we should have changed the players.

"You're not going to get another Klopp and that's my thing, where do you get another Klopp for Liverpool?"
