Jurgen Klopp is delighted with the Liverpool squad he’s got at his disposal.
The German has been in charge for two transfer windows, only one of which we were active in, but has already shipped out the deadwood and signed some fantastic additions – making a profit to boot.
The boss though has told his players that his word is the law, and that they must listen to him only in regards to their improvement, progression and chances of playing.
“You need to create an atmosphere in the team where they listen to me and not listen to all around,” he said, reported by the official website.
“They are very young lads. We all dream about the experienced players in the past but at one point in their career they were young players without the same quality.
“We need to give them the chance to develop and get there. We always judge so early. But I’m very patient. I know we need time but it doesn’t mean that we cannot do it now.
“I’m completely fine with my squad, I really like it. [We have] good characters with a really good attitude – and all the rest you have to develop.
“I saw a lot of things last season where I thought ‘OK, come on, let’s try.’ And you cannot do more than try.”
Klopp’s team have won seven of their nine matches so far this term in all competitions, rising to second favourites for the Premier League title behind Manchester City as a result.
We’ve been scoring goals for fun, but it’s our defence which has so far been a worry. If we can stop conceding goals and maintain our decisiveness in the final third, this could be a fantastic campaign.
