Liverpool fans expecting their side to make major additions to their squad this summer are likely to be disappointed.
That is because Jurgen Klopp feels that bringing in too many new players risks upsetting the balance and the harmony of his squad.
He also feels that his current group of players are ready to go again, and that, although there is a risk of burn-out, that can be overstated.
For the German, too many players brings its own problems, especially if majo0r stars become unhappy with their lack of game time. In his opinion “it’s not possible for use to have a squad of 20 world class players”.
He did, however, hint that finding a back-up to their full-back pairing of Trent-Alexander Arnold and Andy Robertson might be a priority, whilst acknowledging the emerging talent of Liverpool youngster Neco Williams.
The club already has two gaps in its squad to fill, with Adam Lallana joining Brighton, and Dejan Lovren set for a move to Zenit St. Petersburg.
Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
