Liverpool Captain Feeling Jurgen Klopp No Need to Add More Players
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson said that the squad owned by the Reds is sufficiently qualified that there is no need to add a new name in the transfer market this summer. But if there is any new players, Hendo did not refuse to welcome him openly.
Winger Roma Mohamed Salah, Chelsea young striker Dominic Solanke, and Hull City left-back Andrew Robertson became the new names brought in by Jurgen Klopp in the transfer window this time.
The Reds have so far been difficult to convince two more sights, namely RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita, and Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk. Both players have been linked with a move to Anfield since last month.
Robertson, Emre Can, Sadio Mane and Danny Ings have been following Liverpool training sessions at Melwood, after the squad has just done a season turpra to Hong Kong. They further complement the list of names that Klopp prepared for another preseason tournament at the German Audi Cup.
Henderson, who has played in Liverpool’s last four games, admits to fully trusting the coach in improving the quality of the team, including the arrival of new players.
Nevertheless, according to him existing squad is enough quality to compete in the Premier League next season. Although he did not fully oppose the club’s transfer policy to add some more players needed.
“Whether he (Klopp) will bring a new player or not, I think he already has confidence in us players and to our game,” the Liverpool captain told LFCTV.
“Individually, if you look at this team from last year, I feel it has grown and it’s especially so because the manager,”
“Hopefully we can keep growing. If we buy new players, good, because that will strengthen our squad, ”
“We have a lot of good players but you need that when you will face the season with so many games. You need that competition and people compete for the place. ”
The return of Sadio Mane in particular, into a shot of energy and great motivation for the squad of the Reds. Given the Senegalese winger has been absent since last April, and missed the last six weeks of the competition.
Mane, Robertson and Ings will certainly get a share of play when Liverpool face Hertha Berlin this weekend.
As with Henderson, he has recovered from a long injury that has smothered him since last February. Now she felt better.
“I can not remember the last time I could play for a full season, so hopefully this time I can keep free from injury, complete pre season and feel better,”
“The last injury I experienced was very troublesome, not just from how long or wasted time. As a player, you should be able to get back as quickly as possible and you may get through the pain and a little discomfort there, but sometimes it’s not ideal and it can make things worse, ”
“The last few months are very difficult but I think I have to learn from it especially the physical and the mentality,” said the Liverpool captain who is also the England national team midfielder. (Source: Teamtalk)
