Liverpool news and transfers LIVE – Timo Werner ‘replacement’, huge AFCON boost confirmed, Jurgen Klopp ‘lifetime contract’
“Klopp’s mentality and approach is Liverpool down to the ground”
Former Liverpool striker Neil Mellor has been giving his views on the Reds’ potential transfer business this summer and who could ultimately success Jurgen Klopp as manager.
Mellor scored six goals in 21 first team appearances between 2002 and 2005, memorably playing a key role in the Champions League win against Olympiakos in December 2004 which ultimately led to the Reds to the glory of Istanbul.
Liverpool will always be linked to players, it’s just the nature of the football club being one of the biggest in the world.
The current group of players are really special and talented and any player who the manager feels as though he wants to bring in, has to have the talent but they also have to have that mentality and personality to come into the group.
There’s been signings in the past that Klopp has made, and people doubted but they have taken Liverpool to the next level.
So we may not see a big name arrive at Liverpool but I do think Liverpool will go to the market when they need and they will look to get the right personality and player to add strength to the squad.
Mellor was also asked how he thought would ultimately be able to replace Jurgen Klopp as manager once the German’s time at Liverpool comes to an end, a prospect no-one bar the Reds’ rivals will be looking forward to.
The beauty of Liverpool is that no one is even considering anyone else other than Jurgen Klopp as manager.
He’s working to take Liverpool to that next level where they want to be Liverpool and the club are as happy as they have been for 30 years, with this manager in place taking the football club exactly where the fans want him to be.
There is no talk whatsoever that they want to see anybody else coming in and taking over the football club.
Klopp seems to be Liverpool down to the ground, with his mentality and his approach.
It’s times like this, that the supporters can really enjoy having somebody like your club in charge who connects to the people of the city.
