As per a report from Daily Express, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has informed our players to take extra responsibility to force their way back into his plans on the training ground.

Klopp seemed to be aware of the fact that competition for places is so fierce at Anfield that even some massive money signings could find themselves frequently axed from matchday squads (h/t Daily Express).

The Reds had a busy summer transfer window with our manager purchasing quality players to improve the club’s chances of winning the Premier League this term. Due to the influx of new players, Klopp will have a selection headache ahead of every game.

But Klopp insisted his players should stop sulking and blaming the manager (h/t Daily Express). Instead, they must do everything they can to ensure they nail down a regular spot.

“Whatever happens on August 31, it is clear that is the squad for the next four months until January…but I cannot make people happy,” Klopp told ahead of Liverpool’s trip to Crystal Palace on Monday. (h/t The Express)

“Who cannot be happy being part of the squad at Liverpool, I cannot help.

“What I can do is say everyone who trains on his highest level has a big chance to be an important part of the team, to stay in the team and all these things. That makes us happy.

“If someone has a problem with it, he will have a problem with me because he does not respect the situation.”

Klopp has a tough decision at hand. Ahead of Monday’s trip to Crystal Palace, the German gaffer must plan out his starting XI and as usual, there could be some high-profile axings. But that’s the way it works for big clubs where healthy competition is required to flourish.

Competition for places can create conflict among the players but it is absolutely necessary since it often acts as a catalyst for innovation and improvement at the club.

“We played very well together in Leipzig, and he was one of my best friends there. It’s clear: If he’ll be on the move, I ask Timo to join us here at Liverpool.”

Sadio Mane also wanted the striker to join the Reds and told Bild (h/t Daily Star):

“I’d advise him to join Liverpool. I like his style of play. Very forceful, good finish, always giving it 100 per cent. If he wants to join us, we’d welcome him to our team.”

The report adds that Werner is the No.1 target for the Reds, and it will be interesting to see how things progress in the summer.

Liverpool have 0ne of the best attacks in the world

Liverpool play with three of the best attackers in world football with Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino partnering Mane. The trio have plundered several goals since last season, but we could do with more attacking options.

Dominic Solanke was sold to Bournemouth in the winter window, and the report adds that Daniel Sturridge could leave the Reds at the end of the season.

That would leave us with just Divock Origi as a senior forward in the side, and it would be a major surprise if we don’t sign some players in the summer.

Latest Liverpool news: Raphael Honigstein believes Jurgen Klopp will extend stay at Liverpool

German football expert Raphael Honigstein believes Jurgen Klopp will extend his stay at Anfield beyond 2022. The manager signed a new deal with Liverpool in 2016 which keeps him at the club until 2022, but the expert claims that Klopp will sign a new deal even if he fails to land a trophy.

Honigstein is also the author of “Bring the Noise: The Jurgen Klopp story” and said (h/t Daily Star)

“Klopp is totally happy at Liverpool and the club is totally happy with him. I think that he will renew his contract beyond 2022.

“Regardless of whether [Liverpool] become champions or Champions League winners, he will extend to 99.9 per cent.”

The Daily Star adds that Klopp had been linked with a move to Bayern Munich and the Bundesliga giants are still open to signing the Liverpool manager.

Bayern still an option for Klopp

Honigstein did warn that Klopp could sign for the Bundesliga powerhouses later in his career:

“He is flexible and ambitious enough to think about this opportunity if there is another opportunity.”

Klopp has done an excellent job for the Reds even though he hasn’t picked up a trophy at Anfield. The Reds are in a strong position to win the league title and face Bayern Munich in the round of 16 in the Champions League.

Liverpool are possibly playing their best football in the Premier League era, and the next logical step is winning a trophy under the manager.
