Jurgen Klopp ready to fight back against ‘difficult’ Leeds ‘They owe us 3 points’ 



Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said there was no point talking about things he couldn’t have when asked about the club’s decision to pull out of the race to sign the midfielder English midfielder Jude Bellingham.

Liverpool have long been linked with the Borussia Dortmund teenager, considered one of the world’s brightest young talents, and have reportedly done extensive preparatory work to bring the 19-year-old to Anfield this summer.

But with Manchester City and Real Madrid also interested in a move, the overall price of the package now seems beyond Liverpool’s reach, forcing Klopp to look elsewhere for his midfield overhaul.

“I have nothing to say about it,” Klopp said at a press conference on Friday. “We’re not talking about players we sign or not, so we’re not talking about this kind of speculation now. There’s nothing to say about that.

“It’s not about Jude Bellingham, my answer now, but I’ve never understood why we talk about things we theoretically can’t have.

We can’t have six players in one summer, all for £100m. Anyone would say it’s obvious. “You have to figure out what you can do and then get to work. This is your job. We are not children. If you ask a five-year-old what he wants for Christmas and he says I don’t know a Ferrari, you wouldn’t say it’s a good idea, you’d say it’s too expensive and besides you can’t drive it.

“If this guy was really unhappy because he didn’t have a Ferrari, it would be a very sad life. “You see what you can and work with it. That’s how I’ve always worked. What we need and what we want we all try to get, but there are times when we have to accept and step back and do other things.

After last weekend’s 2-2 draw with Arsenal, Klopp is now focused on Monday’s trip to Elland Road to face a Leeds side whose new manager under Javi Gracia finished last weekend in style. conceding four goals in the second half and losing 5.-1 at home to Crystal Palace team-mates.

Leeds are the only team to beat Liverpool at Anfield in the Premier League this season and Klopp is keen to repay them.

“You owe us three points,” he said. “It will be a big fight, a big fight in the situation Leeds are in


“Their last game (against Palace), these kinds of games can happen. They’re actually in a pretty good time, but they’ve taken quite a hit in this game. These things can happen, because the magical Roy (Hodgson) is back. Palace is a very good team. It was a tough nut to crack.

“We expect them to be on the ball, a massive fight, an appropriate atmosphere. It’s going to be tough but we have to build on two games where we’ve been good or very good at times. We’ll try that.

Klopp will welcome back Luis Diaz, who is available for the first time since being injured in the 3-2 loss to Arsenal on October 9.

“He’s 100% ready and trained, now we have to bring him back,” Klopp said of the Colombian striker. “It’s in the selection if nothing happens.”

When asked if his return was like a new signing, Klopp added: “Yes, absolutely … Luis has grown a lot, his English is improving, he’s settled in, he’s matured and he’s much more comfortable in All.

“We’re happy to have him back. He’s a breath of fresh air. He can’t train without a smile on his face and that’s something special. But he’s been out for a long time so we need to see how we can take him step by step to fetch .”


Bayern Munich star Sadio Mane has just sent FSG another clear transfer message after joining Liverpool Trend

Sadio Mane becomes the latest player to learn the hard way that life after Liverpool and Jürgen Klopp isn’t as easy as they’d hoped.

It has been a dramatic week for Liverpool fans. After the thrill of Sunday’s comeback draw against Arsenal, he was back to normal with a thud several days later as this roller coaster season hit yet another slump.

With reports on Tuesday appearing to confirm that the Reds will not be in the market for Jude Bellingham this summer, pressure on club owners FSG has increased significantly. After all, the Borussia Dortmund midfielder has long been touted as Liverpool’s ultimate goal.

Instead, John Henry and his colleagues are expecting a decisive summer. With Bellingham having failed to make it to Anfield, they now have several signings to make which will improve what has been a terrible season.

With his first-choice transfer now ineligible, Jürgen Klopp will have to turn his attention to other targets and it is imperative that FSG – and anyone following in Julian Ward’s footsteps – delivers what he asks for.

The club owners simply cannot afford to get their German wrong again. Klopp is under contract at Anfield until 2026 and on the surface his relationship with the owners has rarely been scrutinized. However, another failed transfer window could risk casting doubt on the 55-year-old and leaving him wondering if he is still with the right club.

Make no mistake, Liverpool will be much worse if Klopp decides it’s time to leave. The Reds have one of the best managers in the world in charge and that has become clearer this week.

When Sadio Mane decided to leave Liverpool last summer, while it was a heartbreaking moment for many, it was also seen as an understandable decision by the Senegal international. He had won everything with the club and could choose his teams for a new challenge.

Unfortunately, things didn’t quite go as planned for him. Just 11 goals in 32 games for Bayern Munich and a lengthy injury layoff on both World Cup sides was a disappointment, but things were set to get worse this week.

Mané has now been suspended by his club after beating team-mate Leroy Sané following Bayern’s loss to Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals. It’s the latest setback in a difficult first year away from Anfield for the 31-year-old and it’s yet another reminder for any current Liverpool player who might consider a move this summer that the grass is not not always greener on the other side.

Mane becomes the latest player to decide to leave the Reds but finds life much more difficult, following the likes of Georginio Wijnaldum, Philippe Coutinho and Emre Can. And of course it’s no coincidence that they struggled without Klopp to lead them.

The German belongs to an elite group of managers. He has transformed a club that was once struggling to regain its former glory into one of the best in the world, turning its players into superstars.

Few in the industry have that kind of power and FSG had better accommodate the demands for him this summer. As things stand, we’re ready for three more years of Jürgen Klopp – we certainly don’t want any less.
