Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp confirms major shake-up in midfield this summer insisting he “needs players” to fill in at end of the season

Liverpool‘s 2022/2023 season so far has been a rough ride. They are currently fifth on the Premier League table and are currently trailing Real Madrid by three goals in the Champions League. From the current standings, it seems highly unlikely that they’ll secure a top 4 spot in the Premier League.

The 2018 Champions League-winning manager claims that their midfield lacks responsibility, and with players like Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita becoming free agents this summer, Klopp will be in the market to strengthen the midfield.

Jude Bellingham has been linked to the Reds in rumors, but Jurgen has denied providing any details. With the emergence of youngsters like Harvey Elliot, he was asked if this affected his transfer plans. 

“We count on them, but that does not mean we will not have a look in the summer. The challenge for us with the changes we have made now or over the next few years is that we have always replaced a sensational player or formation because the boys are just that good. That is how it is, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have to make changes,” he replied.


How has Jurgen Klopp and his Liverpool side performed over the years?

The German has achieved decent success in his seven years with Liverpool. During this period, he has won one Champions League, one Premier League, one FA Cup, one EFL Cup, one FIFA Club World Cup, and one UEFA Super Cup. His Liverpool side has also appeared in the 2018 Champions League final and the 2016 Europa League final.

After his takeover, Jurgen managed to draw out the full potential of many of today’s soccer superstars, notably Mohammed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, and Virgil Van Dijk.

However, all of his accomplishments seem rather insignificant in light of Liverpool’s current performance. Their 0-1 loss against Bournemouth earlier today has almost thrown them out of the Premier League title race. One can even say that they will have to fight really hard and get really lucky to secure a top 4 spot.
