Liverpool Star confirms that he is leaving and sends a personal message to Jurgen Klopp



Liverpool -Midfielder Arthur Melo confirmed that he will leave the club for a new challenge as soon as his loan spell to Anfield ends this summer.

The Brazilian joined the Reds last summer on loan from Juventus, but it can hardly be seen in front of the club due to repeated problems with injuries.

With the goal, Arthur clarified that now he wants to say goodbye to Liverpool by obtaining a little more on the field towards the end of the season.

Barcelona’s ex -husband also paid tribute to the Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and praised the way he treated him during what must have been a difficult campaign.

“The next season I will see him with good eyes. It will be crucial for my career and I’m doing very well. I can’t wait to show this new version of Arthur,” he said.

“I hope I get the chance to say goodbye to Liverpool by playing something to say goodbye to my teammates, the technical committee and the fans who have been so good to me.”

He added: “Since my arrival, [Jürgen] Klopp has treated me very well. It’s an honor for me to work with Jürgen. He’s one of the best coaches in the world, he always spoke well about me, he is an incredible person and the treatment has always been really good, elegant and special. “Being able to train with someone like him always gives you a lot as a player and I’m sure it will be useful for the future because you learn a lot from him.

“Obviously now that I have recovered I would like to be able to play more, but I can understand that the situation is different now than when I arrived because the team had needs then and others now, but I have the assurance that when I talk to them and they tell me that no one is complaining about me, quite the contrary.

“Also all of Liverpool in general, they treated me very well and I have nothing but good words for them and very special affection.”

Liverpool certainly need to strengthen their midfield this summer, with Alexis Mac Allister being one of the names most linked with a potential move to Anfield.

Fabrizio Romano has spoken of LFC set to promote the Brighton and Argentina midfielder after recently pitching his project to him.


What Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp can learn from Sir Alex Ferguson and Wenger to rebuild Liverpool squad

The words ‘rebuild’ and ‘transition’ are enough to send shivers down the spine of any football supporter, but Liverpool’s season is on course to be one history views as a write-off.

When Jurgen Klopp extended his deal to 2026 it was a sign of commitment to something that very few managers get the opportunity to attempt. 

He gave himself a minimum of four years to shift from the current generation to the next, a job that would require phasing out ageing players who have given him everything and winning again with ‘another’ Liverpool.

The average lifespan of a Premier League manager is two years and four days, reducing further still as you work your way down the English football pyramid.

Klopp now sits as the Premier League‘s longest-serving current boss – currently, the fifth longest-serving of all time – and his new deal means that his tenure is likely to be more than five times the average.

Supervising a transition like this is something that most managers are not long enough to try to do less successfully.

At a certain distance, Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsenal Wener spent more years with their respective clubs compared to any other manager in the history of the Premier League. They were also two of the most furnished.

Football works in cycles and methodological changes, and this is why Jose Mourinho and Rafael Benitez’s willing will have somehow fallen into the hierarchy.

But if Klopp must bring this side of Liverpool upwards, there are elements of the life of Ferguson and Wenger’s life that must be replicated. How Ferguson rebuilt United


Klopp almost certainly won’t fit into Ferguson’s 26-and-a-half-year stint at the helm and it’s unlikely he wants to.

However, Ferguson’s ability to achieve unrivaled success over several generations is something Liverpool would be only too happy to replicate.

He has won 13 national titles in an unstoppable 21-year streak. The hands of time catch up with every player and that level of dominance cannot be achieved with the same team.

Fighting complacency is perhaps the greatest challenge when the standards are so high, something Ferguson has mastered like no other. Man United scored a famous treble in 1998/99 with one of the greatest sides in the club’s history, littered with quality at every level.

The ruthlessness required to dissect a team that delivered everything is exactly what Klopp has been criticized in some circles for not showing more of.

The boss has denied allegations of being ‘too loyal’ to his players after a humiliating 3-0 away defeat at Brighton in January.

Just three years after Ferguson’s United completed the treble, a significant number of key players had been passed on.

Teddy Sheringham, Dennis Irwin, Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole have all moved to different English clubs, while Jaap Stam and Peter Schmeichel have gone overseas. Three seasons ago the Reds were on course to claim an elusive 19th league title by one of the widest margins in history. Sadio Mane and Gini Wijnaldum have been the only significant departures since then.

Ferguson was able to let big numbers slip by to prevent self-gratifying behavior in the team, with the departure of Paul Ince in 1995 being perhaps the most famous example.

Why Wenger sold players in their prime

For a long time, Arsenal were the only team capable of coming close to Man United at the height of their dominance.

The Gunners finished in the top two for eight impressive consecutive seasons between 1997/98 and 2004/05 before Chelsea finally took their place at the top. While not all high-profile exits were by choice, Wenger was also happy to let his best players go if he felt it was in the overall interest of the team.

Patrick Vieira was sold to Juventus at the age of 29, just 12 months after Arsenal became the only team to complete an ‘invincible’ Premier League season.

The sale of Robin van Persie effectively gave Man United their most recent league title in 2012-13, but the Dutchman’s production dwindled soon after and he was subsequently sold to Fenerbahce in 2015.

Emmanuel Petit, Marc Overmars and Alexander Hleb have all been allowed to leave at the age of 30, meaning their powers have diminished elsewhere and could be sold for their full value.

While Arsenal would have preferred to keep him at the time, there could also be an argument as to whether Thierry Henry left the club at the right time. The Frenchman enjoyed a crushing three-year tenure at Camp Nou before eventually being re-signed by the Gunners on a short loan spell in 2012.

As is the case for Liverpool today

The manager still has work to do before his contract expires in 2026. He may even choose to stay beyond that.

The brutality of some Ferguson and Wenger sales has thrown the spotlight on a number of recent Liverpool contract extensions.

Jordan Henderson’s four-year extension at the start of last season gave the skipper conditions and certainties worthy of his contribution to the club. But with a midfield already packed with players in their twilight years, will the club regret being dependent on Henderson until he is 35?

The Reds face a daunting task this summer to complete the squad, particularly in midfield, and making those resources available to a number of older players could present an unwelcome obstacle.

For perhaps the first time in his career, Klopp is tasked with rebuilding a team while continuing to succeed.

It’s not necessarily an impossible act to juggle, but it is something that requires support and resources.

This process must start now and all summer signings must fit into this mold. It’s an almighty job, but there isn’t another person on the planet I’d rather have front and center.
