Jurgen Klopp has arguably got Liverpool playing the best football in their history, and has the team looking more likely than ever to win their first league title in 30 years.
It’s been a wild journey for the German, who took over a fairly weak Reds side from Brendan Rodgers back in 2015 and has transformed it into the best in Europe. They currently sit top of the Premier League, and having come so close to winning last season, you get the sense that this time around they will be prepared for the stages of the season that cost them in the 18/19 campaign.
Much has been said about Klopp’s transfer policy this summer, with the Reds making no major signings to the squad. It is a policy that has not been adopted by any of the other title contenders this season, with Manchester City spending big money to bring in midfielder Rodri and full-back Joao Cancelo in a bid to bolster their bid for silverware. But it is one that echoes Sir Alex Ferguson’s proven formula of trusting in the squad you have.
Liverpool have a world class team, and Klopp knows that. There is little room for improvement in the squad, and any additions might unsettle the Reds.
It clear Liverpool’s recruitment over the last few years has been outstanding, with them not only improving their squad dramatically with the players they have signed, but also improving the players themselves. Who would have thought the likes of Alisson, Van Djik and Salah would go on to become some of the best players in the world before their moves to Anfield?
The same can be said about the likes of Robertson, Gomez and Alexander-Arnold. Their development has been unbelievable under Klopp and his staff, and there are plenty of signs that there is still loads of talent still yet to breakthrough.
With the Reds now the reigning champions of Europe, and strong contenders for their first league title in three decades, we are in a glorious time period to be a Liverpool fan, and long may it continue.
