Jamie Carragher believes Jurgen Klopp has finally got his rotation policy at Liverpool FC right.

The former Borussia Dortmund head coach celebrated his two-year anniversary at Anfield back in October following his appointment as Brendan Rodgers’ successor in 2015.

Klopp led Liverpool FC to the League Cup and the Europa League final in his first season in charge but the Reds lost to Manchester City and Sevilla.

The Liverpool FC manager improved upon an eighth-placed finish to secure a Champions League spot thanks to finishing in four place in his first full season in charge at Anfield.

The 18-time English champions were initially talked up as potential title challengers in the 2016-17 but Liverpool FC’s lack of depth was exposed by a series of injuries at the start of the year.

Klopp signed four new players in the summer transfer window to add Mohamed Salah, Dominic Solanke, Andy Robertson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to his squad.

The Liverpool FC manager has been able to rotate his squad this season ahead of the hectic festive schedule to keep key players such as Sadio Mane and Salah fresh.

Former defender Carragher praised Klopp for finally getting his rotation policy right at the Merseyside outfit.

“I think the brilliant thing for Liverpool is that it’s Jurgen Klopp’s second full season in English football,” Carragher told Sky Sports.

“January was a bit of a nightmare for Liverpool last season because of injuries, a loss of form and Sadio Mane going away.

“But this year he is rotating it much more – he’s changing five or six players each game. That’s not easy to get it right and it leaves you open to massive criticism.

“He’s getting it right now – changing players at the right time. He’s got a bench now which looks like a bench a top club should have – he didn’t have that last season. Hopefully you’ll see Liverpool get through this period.”
