ANGRY Liverpool fans flew a banner before Sunday’s home clash with Manchester United calling for club owners FSG to go and manager Jurgen Klopp to stay.
Supporters believe the Fenway Sports Group has failed to back Klopp properly after the Reds picked up two trophies last season, as well as finishing runners-up in the Premier League and Champions League.

Fans unhappy with FSG were even more frustrated in January when the American conglomerate appeared to U-turn on selling the club, deciding instead to offload only a small minority share.
And a banner from a plane above Anfield on Sunday afternoon read: “FSG out – Klopp In – Enough is Enough.”
Cody Gakpo eased the mood with a brilliant opener for Liverpool just before half-time.
Darwin Nunez and Gakpo then pounced again soon after the interval to make it 3-0.
But fans are upset with what they see as a lack of backing for Klopp as his team struggle to finish in even the top four.
Darwin Nunez’s £85million summer arrival and Gakpo’s £37m capture in January have been Klopp’s only recent big-money recruits.
And leaders Arsenal spent well in the close season as Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko came in from the Etihad.
Just two months ago, Liverpool were expected to be sold for around £4billion following talk of a buy-out last November.
But Boston-based FSG reportedly failed to attract any suitable proposals and denied claims of interest from Qatar.
