Former Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann has criticized the timing of the release of assistant manager Pep Lijnders’ book ‘Intensity’.
The Reds have had a miserable start to the season, which has not been remedied by an injury crisis at the club.
In the Premier League, they took just nine points from their first six games and were well beaten by Serie A leaders Napoli in Italy as their Champions League campaign kicked off on Wednesday.
Jurgen Klopp’s assistant, Lijnders, wrote the book on the progress of last season’s historic campaign and it was released in early August.
Hamann, who was famous for winning the Champions League in 2005, took Twitter to give his opinion on the timing of the book’s release.

“Alarm bells should have been ringing by now” @LFC fans when the current assistant manager wrote a book while still employed by the club. I’m not so sure how he did it.”
Everyone seems to have an opinion at this point as to the reasons for Liverpool’s poor form, but to suggest it is related to the book’s release seems extreme.
Reds fans hope the return of key players from injury will help them get back on their feet so they can continue under the microscope like this.
