Jurgen Klopp drops major transfer hint about Liverpool’s summer rebuild
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has hinted at a summer rebuild at Liverpool after dismissing accusations he is too loyal to his players.
Klopp also suggested that significant alterations to his Liverpool squad could be forthcoming in the summer transfer window, saying:
“Yes, of course I’ve heard that but I am not too loyal. I am loyal, I think everyone should be loyal, but I am not too loyal.
“The situation is a little bit different. I know the problem is too complex. You have a good player who did a lot of good stuff in the past and then maybe, in your mind, you think: ‘that’s it now for him.’
“So if you can then go out and bring in another player to replace him that makes sense from both sides [to say]: ‘Come on, it was a great time, see you later.’ If you cannot bring anybody in then you cannot take anyone out, that’s the situation.
“Again, I am not sure I have said it, the only problem of this intelligent question is what you all make of the answer. I am not too loyal so at Dortmund it was clear when I left I said: ‘Something has to change here.’
“It was a different situation but if you want it’s similar. Either I go, the manager position changes or a lot of other things change. As far as I know, from what I hear, if nobody tells me, I will not go. So that means maybe there’s a point where we have to change other stuff. And we will see that.”
