Jürgen Klopp’s unwavering belief in his squad played a big part in Liverpool getting back on track against Tottenham Hotspur, according to Georginio Wijnaldum.
The Reds brought an end to a disheartening run of form as they produced an electrifying performance to win 2-0 against Mauricio Pochettino’s men at Anfield on Saturday.
And Wijnaldum says a first Premier League victory since December would not have been possible without the manager showing faith in his players during a spell which saw them harshly criticised.
“I think if a manager is saying the same thing [that players aren’t good enough] in the situation we were in, that’s [bad] for a team,” he said.
