The coach of Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp, has once again accepted the difficult situation in which the club finds itself this season, stressing the need for changes in the summer market. "The Reds" were defeated 5-2 by Real Madrid in the Champions League and elimination in the next match seems inevitable. In the championship, the situation is also far from expectations, as Liverpool holds the 8th place in the overall ranking of the Premier League.
Klopp commented on the situation:
"We know we have to improve and change a lot of things, and we will. We can't do it now, but obviously we have to do something in the summer. At the moment we have to go through the situation fighting...One of the main reasons I signed the new contract was because I knew there would be a transition period."
The German coach also pointed out the differences between Liverpool and other clubs in terms of management:
"This club is not run by throwing money around. Our transfers must always be hit. This complicates the situation. We can't do 4 transfers without first knowing who is leaving and stuff like that. Last year was not a season for big changes. We played until the last moment, and if we have to change something in this club, we can't do it by bringing in players, and then realizing later that no one will leave. It doesn't work that way."
"We have to make our plans and that's what we do, but based on how this club is run. It is clearly different from other clubs. It has worked so far and we have to see if it will work again, or if we have to adapt.”
Despite the disappointing results of this season, it seems that the German coach still enjoys the trust of the club leaders.
