‘I have total belief’: Jurgen Klopp sends message to Liverpool FC squad
Liverpool FC boss Jurgen Klopp sends message to fringe members of his squad ahead of festive schedule
Jurgen Klopp says every member of the Liverpool FC squad will have a role to play during their hectic festive schedule.
The Reds will take part in a staggering five competitions in the next month as Liverpool FC compete in the Premier League, the Champions League, the League Cup, the Club World Cup and the FA Cup.
Liverpool FC started their jam-packed schedule with a home clash against Everton in the Merseyside derby on Wednesday night before a trip to Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.
Klopp’s men will make the trip to Swiss side RB Salzburg in their final Champions League group-stage fixture next Tuesday.
The Reds will host Watford in their next Premier League game before they take on Aston Villa on 17 December and a day later start their participation in the Club World Cup.
Once they return from the Fifa competition, Liverpool FC will have league games against Leicester, Wolves and Sheffield United before a third-round clash with Everton in the FA Cup.
Speaking at his pre-match media conference about Liverpool FC’s heavily packed fixture schedule, Klopp said:
“We are in the period now where every minute on the pitch of each player is just so valuable to us.
“If any member of our squad lessens their contribution by even the smallest of percentage, for the shortest amount of time, we will achieve nothing.
“I see the influence that all of our players have on what we do on a day-to-day basis. I get that those outside of Melwood don’t have the same opportunity that my coaches and I have.
“But in the coming days, weeks and months that will of course change. And I have total belief the contribution of the entire squad will only enhance us, because of what I see on the training pitch.
“There are so many players in our ranks who, until now, I have no reasonable explanation to give for why they haven’t started more matches.
“So many have deserved to and my admiration for them as people and professionals could not be higher.”
Liverpool FC are looking to win their first-ever Premier League title this season after the Reds finished in second place in the title race last term.
