Newly appointed manager Jurgen Klopp has been turning things around at Anfield. Since his arrival at the Merseyside club, the team has improved and also successfully managed to earn some great results. Jurgen is trying his best to reform the Liverpool squad as the former Dortmund boss looks to taking the side to achieving glory in the future. Apart from Klopp’s inclusion in the club, another major event which took place at Liverpool was their legend, Steven Gerrard’s exit. Gerrard, 35, left Anfield at the end of last season to join LA Galaxy but has been training with the Reds in the MLS off-season. Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool are still trying to fill the void left by Steven Gerrard’s exit and has not ruled out a return for the midfielder. Gerrard has been termed as a dominant player by the current gaffer, Klopp.
‘’The players have to fill the gap,” the Reds boss told Sky Sports News HQ. “It’s a big task. They try, but they’re young. That’s not an excuse, I’m just describing the situation. That’s what we’re working on.”
The German declined to say whether Gerrard left too soon, but added: “We spoke about many things, but it’s not for the public.’’
“I’m an optimistic guy, but he has a contract. Definitely not a loan spell now, but we will do it if we can.”
Liverpool is currently 8th on the table and when questioned if the lads would end up in the top four, Klopp seemed positive about it. ‘’Of course it’s possible,” he said. “We have to work for each little victory pretty hard. We all know that it is hard work and we are prepared for this.
“You always need a little bit of luck in life, and in football especially, to get the right results. We’ve had luck in a few of the games but not all of them, the luck allowed us to show we started in a good way.
“Now we need results again to stay in the race and so that everyone can keep believing in us.”
‘’We stay cool, if you want to feel faith, trust and respect you have to give it too,” he said. ” If I feel there is one player in the world that can solve all our problems then let’s collect all the money we have and buy him, easy.
“But just because everyone is asking me for transfers, it’s not a reason to do them. We know the prices and we have injuries. If we don’t get anyone, we stick with the players we have.”
The Reds will face the mighty Leicester City as they prepare themselves for a battle against the Foxes’ two heroic men, Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy.
