The Liverpool FC legend warns Jurgen Klopp about his biggest challenge
Jamie Redknapp has warned Jurgen Klopp that he will find keeping his Liverpool FC squad happy “a big challenge” next season.
The Reds were one of the busiest clubs in the 2018 summer transfer window as Jurgen Klopp bolstered his squad with some key signings.
Liverpool FC started their summer spending spree with the addition of Brazil international Fabinho in a £39m deal from Ligue 1 side AS Monaco.
Klopp further improved his midfield options with the £48m addition of Guinea international from Bundesliga side RB Leipzig.
The Reds have also signed Switzerland international Xherdan Shaqiri in a £13.5m switch from relegated Premier League side Stoke City.
Liverpool FC concluded their summer transfer business with the addition of Alisson Becker in a £67m switch from Serie A giants AS Roma.
Klopp will have to keep his squad happy throughout the Premier League campaign given the depth of options.
Former Liverpool FC skipper Redknapp believes the Reds boss will need to keep his quality players content throughout the season.
“Daniel Sturridge stepped off the bench to cap that 4-0 win over West Ham and having him back in shape will be a real asset to Klopp,” Redknapp told Sky Sports. “Along with some good summer signings, Liverpool have plenty of creative options to call on this year, too.
“Klopp will just need to maintain that happy balance in the squad. It’s one of the challenges of having talented players on the bench. Yes, it’s all smiles at the start of the season but after 25 games that good feeling wears off a little bit if you’ve been sat on the bench for most of the time.
“That was something Pep Guardiola did well at City last year, keeping all of his squad happy and feeling involved in the success.”
Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last term to ensure their continued participation in the Champions League.
The Reds lost 3-1 to Real Madrid in the Champions League final last term.
