Despite the likelihood that Liverpool won’t play in the Champions League next year, Jurgen Klopp insists that the club is still “really attractive” to potential recruits.
In order for Liverpool, who are currently fifth in the Premier League standings, to qualify for the Champions League next season, Newcastle or Manchester United must drop points.
Monday night’s Premier League match pits the Reds against Leicester as Jurgen Klopp’s team looks for a seventh straight victory to maintain their chances of qualifying for Europe.
When asked how missing out on the Champions League would affect his team’s transfer strategy, Klopp said he didn’t think it would make a difference because Liverpool would still be a desirable place to move to.
We cannot say right now if we have Champions League football, if I’m allowed to speak to a player. So, if we’re already speaking, it is obvious that he is aware of the circumstance, he said at the pre-game press conference.
But it’s only a general issue. I believe that when you become a member of a club, you accomplish something with the club. It goes without saying that we must compete for trophies and be a part of the Champions League. You are more than welcome to take part if you want to. The Champions League is not a guarantee for this season.
“But everything else remains the same as before: a fantastic club with a really good football team, and hopefully a better one next year. It’s really that easy. Liverpool is still there. Many players find us to be very appealing. ”.
With six straight Premier League victories, Liverpool has recently displayed signs of improvement.
Trent Alexander-Arnold now spends a lot of time in midfield in Klopp’s modified tactical formation, and the German manager claimed the change is meant to give his team a head start on the upcoming season.
We strive to give ourselves a chance for a new beginning by trying a variety of different things, including various football-related endeavors.
“We had eight or nine days in between games, and we wanted to use that time to start the new season already. We had no idea where it would take us, but we didn’t want to waste any more time.
“It was like a fresh breath of air. not only for the players, but for all of us, including the coaches. To be completely honest, it’s a lot of fun to think about, work on, and then see the results of how we want to control the game differently, protect our game differently, and play in different formations.
“Sometimes it takes more than just small changes to turn things around. ”.
