Jurgen Klopp insists Liverpool are not looking for a summer rebuild, despite their miserable Premier League campaign.
Defending the title from The Reds is impossible, with injuries and loss of form. Currently, they stand in sixth place in the table, five points away from fourth place. They have lost their last four league games, three of them at Anfield, and have won just two of their last 11 since Christmas.
They travel to Sheffield United, the last club in the table, on Sunday knowing that nothing less than a win would be costly, and with questions about team composition the cause of numerous injuries especially in the defensive phase.
Speaking on Friday, Klopp told reporters: “What is reconstruction? Ten outside, 10 inside? Changes in XI [fillestare]? Cili XI?!”.
“I do not think it is time for a massive reconstruction, with six or seven, executing contracts, but trying to get rid of them and bring in new faces.”
“This team, this year, did not have the chance to play together once, really. “I think it would make sense to take a look at it.”
“But other than that, yes, there will be small adjustments. Reacting to the situation, but at the same time planning for the future. “I am not sure if we can do this in the summer, to be honest, but this is what we will try”, added the German strategist. /Telegraph/
