Ryan Babel says there is still a lot of work to do at Liverpool

Former Liverpool winger Ryan Babe has expressed his admiration for the Reds’ summer transfer activities and is optimistic about the team’s future under Jurgen Klopp.

Babel acknowledges they are working hard to restore the Reds to their former glory. He also remains confident in Jurgen Klopp’s abilities as manager and believes the German tactician will address the shortcomings of last season’s squad. Here’s what he told talkSPORT via The Mirror:

“I think there is still a lot of work to do, but once again I’m a Liverpool fan, I’m confident. I trust Jurgen Klopp. I know he knows last season obviously wasn’t good enough, so this season they definitely need to step up.”

Last season was undoubtedly a challenge for Liverpool as they fell short of high expectations and were unable to sustain a title challenge or a trophy.

However, they showed resilience and determination, finishing the season with an impressive seven-game winning streak in April and May, eventually achieving a respectable fifth-place finish and securing European football for next season.

The summer transfer window has been a bright spot for Liverpool, with the club making key signings of Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szboszlai to strengthen the squad.

But as Babel said, there is work to be done at the club. There is definitely a need for a new centre-back, while Jordan Henderson’s imminent move to Al-Ettifaq leaves us in need of another midfielder.

These additions are promising and have certainly generated excitement among fans, including Babel, who recognizes the potential impact these players could have on team performance.

Expectations for Liverpool to perform at their best are always high given their illustrious history and passionate fan base. Babel’s unwavering support and belief in the team’s abilities reflect the loyalty shared by many Liverpool fans around the world.

As Liverpool look ahead to the new season, the focus will be on regaining their place among the top contenders in the Premier League and Europe. Klopp and his players are certainly aware that they fell short of their ambitions last season, and are determined to step up their game and compete again at the top level.

Hopefully next season will bring some silverware to Anfield. The last campaign was certainly not a reflection of the hard work the players put in behind the scenes, and there is hope that next season will be better for the Reds.

At the start of the season, all eyes will be on Anfield and the fans, including ourselves, will eagerly await the results that will shape the Reds’ course.
