With the new Kop boss Jurgen Klopp trying his best to reshape the Liverpool squad to get the best out of them, Joe Allen admits that he is trying his best and playing for his future at the club, he wants to fight for his place at Liverpool. It is certain there will be so many new additions to Liverpool this summer followed by many exits too and the Welshman does not want to get axed.
According to 90min.com, the 26-year-old midfielder admitted that while he has always known that he will have to play well to secure a place under Klopp, and he needs to show his worth in these few weeks as the squads will surely be tested by the Liverpool boss, with the transfer window nearing.
There are rumors of joining back to his previous club Swansea city, but Allen is famous among the fans and he does not look interested at all in any sort of move away from Anfield. Playing both the games against Borussia Dortmund and Stoke, Allen is really happy. His happiness can easily be felt by his quote on Sunday:
“At a club like Liverpool you are always playing for your future.
“Maybe more so now than ever before for me, but it’s not something I’ve thought too much about or focused too much on. It’s just a case of looking forward to games like Thursday night.
“Of course, I hope I start. It’s a huge game. Every single player in the squad will be hoping the same.”
In the absence of the club skipper Jordan Henderson, who is out injured with a ligament injury, Joe Allen has been very influential to the squad. After a brilliant display against Dortmund, he featured at Stoke also and did brilliantly well and earned himself a standing ovation at the weekend against the Potters. Seeing his current form he is likely to be in the starting Line up to feature in the return tie with Dortmund on Thursday
The Welshman also added: “It meant a huge amount. I’m really grateful for the support I’ve had from the fans. It was a special moment to have experienced that. I really enjoyed it. It’s always a privilege to play at Anfield and when you pick up three points, it makes it that much sweeter.
“Losing Jordan has been the one big disappointment we’ve had in the last week or so. He’s our captain and a key player for us. He’s going to be missed for sure but it’s a case of making sure whoever starts steps up and helps the team get through what’s an exciting time.
“My focus all season has been on staking a claim. Inevitably there are injuries and suspensions throughout the season so you will get opportunities.
“My aim hasn’t changed. It’s about trying to make sure when you get an opportunity that you take it with both hands. There is a lot still to play for this season and there’s still a lot to achieve. I want to be a part of that.”
