Gary Neville has praised Jurgen Klopp’s decision to rotate his Liverpool FC team throughout the season so far.

The Reds boss has regularly changed his starting line-up in the current campaign in an attempt to keep his squad fresh.

Liverpool FC struggled badly in the second half of the 2016-17 season as the Reds stumbled over the line in the top-four race.

The Merseyside outfit will have to contend with a busy schedule in the remaining months of the 2017-18 term.

Liverpool FC will take on Portuguese giants Porto in the Champions League round of 16 later this month.

The former Borussia Dortmund boss has been criticised for his constant tinkering.

Former Manchester United defender Neville believes Klopp has been proven right in his decision to adopt a strict rotation policy.

“What I would say is the energy left Liverpool in the second half [against Tottenham last weekend],” Neville told Sky Sports. “Maybe it is a little bit of a warning.

“It is credit to Jurgen Klopp why he has been rotating and why he has been shifting the team around. He will have to do that for the next couple of months now.”

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last term to secure a return to Champions League football after a two-season absence.

The Reds haven’t won the Premier League title but finished in second place in 2002, 2009 and 2014.
