WITH fingers pointing in Jürgen Klopp’s direction after an uninspiring start to the season, and the media microscope firmly trained on the Liverpool manager, how does the boss cope with the questions about his leadership?

Gareth Roberts, Paul Cope and John Gibbons speak to Professor Damian Hughes, a sports psychologist who has worked with a string of elite sports teams and individuals, about the problems now facing Klopp and how maybe he can overcome them.

Is Klopp providing a consistent message to his squad? What can be done to break a bad run? Does luck play a part?

All these topics and more are discussed in a fascinating debate.
