Liverpool is facing an injury crisis this season. Many players are currently injured and Klopp couldn’t cope with this situation. Many superstars are set to leave this summer if Liverpool failed to qualify for the Champions League. One of them is Mohammed Salah.
Barcelona showed interest in Egyptian multiple times and they feel this is a great opportunity to sign the Liverpool superstar. Catalans want to replace Lionel Messi with Salah because Argentina’s future is not yet solved. There is a high possibility that he will leave this summer for PSG after the humiliation Barca faced in the first leg of the champions league.
The club would suffer a huge financial loss if it were to lose Champions League football. On top of the continuing consequences of the coronavirus pandemic. It may also have an effect on the squad’s makeup, both during the transfer window and in terms of players who wish to leave. Klopp, on the other hand, has ruled out the possibility. After sending a message to Mohamed Salah’s agent on Friday. He has taken a firm stance on players who place a premium on the Champions League.
Klopp said :
- “I know we have loyalty from the players. It is not a situation where a player in the squad says, ‘We are not in the Champions League so I have to leave’. That will not happen. I know them well enough to know that”
Klopp is also adamant that the club’s “strength” will ensure that they will never be out of the Champions League for long. Although Klopp is unconcerned about Liverpool’s chances of qualifying for Europe’s top competition this season. He maintains the club would not return to the abyss of the early part of the last decade. Liverpool, on the other hand, leads RB Leipzig 2-0 going into the second leg of their last-16 tie next week. Klopp attempted to assuage concerns. Missing out this season will be the start of a long hiatus.
Jürgen Klopp felt the Reds paid the price for not playing well enough in ‘decisive moments’ this evening.
