‘They’ll be speaking to other clubs’: Liverpool told they face player exodus ahead of Klopp exit

Posted by

Wayne Rooney has suggested that multiple Liverpool stars could now look at Jurgen Klopp’s impending exit as an opportunity to follow him out the door.

There are a number of key questions to already be asked of players on expiring contracts; chiefly, Mo Salah, Virgil van Dijk and Mo Salah.

The trio in question are on terms set to expire in the summer of 2025.

“I think we all know how the game is; players will look at that [Klopp leaving] and see that as their way of getting out and they’ll be speaking to other clubs,” the former Everton striker spoke on Sky Sports“We know that happens.”

After Jamie Carragher questioned what the German could have done differently, Rooney responded: “I’m not saying it’s his fault, but the timing of it coming out – I think that will have definitely had an effect on some of those players.”

Jurgen Klopp leaving hurts Liverpool’s recruitment

How many players will want to follow Jurgen Klopp out the exit door?

There’s no question in our minds that players were more than happy to join Liverpool for Jurgen Klopp alone, never mind our status as a world-class footballing institution.

With that in mind, we have to accept the possibility that a new era under fresh management won’t be something attractive to some members of the playing staff.

That’s regrettable, if true, but not entirely unforeseen we imagine by the powers that be behind the scenes.

We’ll have to wait and see how it all plays out under potential new boss Arne Slot.
