Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp reveals what he does with new signings at Anfield | Football | Sport


Klopp is expected to have a relatively quiet summer with Liverpool’s squad having impressed this season.

The Reds finished one point behind champions Manchester City in the Premier League and still have the Champions League final to compete in.

Klopp brought in a handful of players last summer with the likes of Alisson and Fabinho shining at Anfield.

But the German has revealed that he just sits back and watches his new signings for their opening training sessions.

“When a new player is coming in, I don’t give them any information,” Klopp said.

“I let them play, I learn about what is good naturally and what we want to adjust.

“You learn more about your players each day, how to treat them and how to deal with them, a lot happens with one talk actually, whether that’s with the player or with the team.

“All in all, you try to help 11 players do the right things in the right moment.”

Liverpool may be after a new centre-back to partner Virgil van Dijk this summer while there has been speculation over a potential exit for Xherdan Shaqiri.

But Klopp is keen to work with and develop his current crop of players having splashed around £170million last summer.

He recently said: “For sure there’s no need for that level (of spending).

“I don’t want to talk exactly what we will do, but I don’t think this is a team at the moment where we have to spend the big money or whatever.

“The best way to do it is bring together a group of players, try to develop them altogether and then stay together for a while.

“That was maybe the main problem of Liverpool for the last decade.

“When they had a good team after a season they went all over the world. That will not happen this year for sure.”
