As a result of his team’s troubles this year, Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp asserts that “it is evident we have to do something in the summer.”
In the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 match, Real Madrid defeated the Reds 5-2 on Tuesday.
In spite of having games in hand over some of its competitors, Liverpool is currently seventh in the Premier League after a patchy season.
We know we need to alter and improve, and we will, stated Klopp.
Although we are unable to accomplish anything right away, it is obviously obvious that we must take action this summer. We just need to persevere through it and fight back for the time being.
Together with striker Roberto Firmino, the summer contracts of midfielders James Milner, Naby Keita, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain of Liverpool will expire.
As a result of a lot of players’ inconsistent play this year, Klopp’s team finds itself seven points outside the top four of the Premier League on Saturday when they go to Crystal Palace (19:45 GMT).
The Reds’ struggles stand in stark contrast to last season, when they played every game possible and made 63 appearances in their quest for the quadruple, despite the impact that injuries have had on them.
They failed to win the Champions League or the Premier League, but they did win the FA Cup and League Cup, two trophies they had previously lost this season in the fourth round.
While stating that “this team has a beautiful history,” Klopp also stated that “one of the key reasons” he accepted a new contract through 2026 was because he was aware that there would be a time of transition.
