Another instance of Jurgen Klopp’s gradual and inevitable transformation is taking place at Liverpool with Darwin Nunez joining  and Sadio Mane departing.

No soccer team can stay put and thrive for very long.

It takes constant foresight to see ahead of the curve, pattern-read, and try to foresee the future in order to build the kind of longer-term legacy that has motivated Jurgen Klopp to decide to extend his tenure at Anfield.

No one wants to see Sadio Mane leave Liverpool, but if he has made the decision that enough is enough there, you must accept his decision.

Only Mane himself is aware of the motivations driving his decision to go from Merseyside to Munich, whether those motivations stem from the possibility of making more money elsewhere or are simply related to his reaching a point in his career where he wants an easier life.

InG  there are no quadruples. Bayern Munich’s attention typically shifts to the Champions League in the second half of their season because the Bundesliga, which consists of 18 teams and 34 games, is almost certain to be won by the time Christmas arrives and there is only one domestic cup.

I completely get why Mane finds the Bundesliga to be so alluring when you factor in a three or four-week winter vacation.

His biennial journeys to Africa for international tournament play with Senegal will be much easier on his mind, body, and soul because it provides a superbly balanced footballing landscape.

Mane has essentially finished two Klopp cycles after serving Liverpool for six years, something that not many players have had the stamina to do, particularly during his tenure as manager of Borussia Dortmund, where he may have partially broken some of his players.

There is a notion that claims football clubs run in three-year cycles.

Part of this need for change is rooted in Liverpool’s strict wage structure, yet that is the same wage structure that has brought us to where we are as a football club, one which can enter the final two games of the season with the very real possibility of completing the quadruple, no matter how painful it was to ultimately fall short.

Driving back from the chaos of Paris, we had eventually drifted from the therapy of music to football discussion shows on the radio, where former professional footballers, who clearly aren’t habitual Liverpool observers, declared that Klopp needed to rebuild his team.

It was all complete nonsense, of course; much of what was being said was based on the assumption that Klopp had built a team that hadn’t been added to for the last three years.

the craft It appeared as if you were sitting next to him at a table, where he was holding three upside-down cups and a little ball.

Keep an eye on the cup you assumed the ball was beneath as he rearranges the cups to avoid both your final guess being incorrect and the fact that you failed to notice that he had switched the cups for wine glasses.

Two more years later, at Wembley, a team led by Alan Hansen, Graeme Souness, and Kenny Dalglish successfully defended their European Cup.

Ian Rush, Mark Lawrenson, Ronnie Whelan, Craig Johnston, and Bruce Grobbelaar had all been integrated by 1981.

Dejan Lovren, Georginio Wijnaldum, Xherdan Shaqiri, and Adam Lallana are no longer available to us because we won the Premier League in 2019–20.

While Adrian is still here but unlikely to ever be needed again, Chamberlain is most certainly on his way this summer. Others will no doubt move on as well.

Some of the names among those who won the Champions League just three years ago in Madrid seem to have vanished ages ago. The voices of Rhian Brewster, Alberto Moreno, Daniel Sturridge, and Simon Mignolet seem to be calling to us from a time that is much further in the past than 2019.

Before the trophies started to fall our way, too, there were others whose loss we worried about. Emre Can and Philippe Coutinho fall under this category.

Similar to Paisley, it could be said that Klopp hasn’t made a huge mistake in terms of transfers, whether it be in terms of who has left, his hiring practices, or even just his willingness to wait patiently for the right player.

Klopp has added Thiago, Diogo Jota, Kostas Tsimikas, Ibrahima Konate, Luis Diaz, and Fabio Carvalho since we won the Premier League championship in 2019–20. Next up is Darwin Nunez. Only Thiago is over the age of 26. The future is bright, but only because we have a manager who is alert to the need for a consistently subtle change, a manager who believes in footballing evolution.

For Mane, and quite probably Salah beyond him 12 months from now, there will be a pain and sadness to be felt upon their departures, but new energy will take their places, because Klopp will already know who he wants to succeed them.

It’s how evolution works
