Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says his squad is in the Europa League to win it, not to give minutes to benchwarmers and unproven youngsters.
Many people believe Liverpool won’t start prominent names like Mo Salah, Virgil Van Dijk, and Dominik Szoboszlai in Thursday’s opener against LASK in Linz, Austria, for the Europa League.
Young players like Ben Doak and Jarell Quansah are on Klopp’s radar, and they appear to be on the cusp of breаking into the first squad. Guests like Harvey Elliott, Joe Gomez, and Caoimhin Kelleher on the fringes of the entertainment industry would be grateful for even a few minutes of screen time.
We came here to compete,” Klopp remarked. “In order to deny chances.” I am aware that we are heavy favorites, but we have come to play football and intend to make the most of our opportunity.
The stadium is fantastic; it only opened in February; we are not conceited, but we do intend to compete and win in this setting.
We had to take a plane to Russia and do a lot of traveling to try to bond as a group. Obviously, the outcomes assisted. We played on a frozen field in Switzerland. We were not prepared, yet we triumphed nevertheless, playing exceptionally well.
It’s not what we have that matters, but what we do with it. The life force is there; something is developing. The group has fun hаnging out in the fresh air. We’ll put it to good use and put that energy into the game.We all wаnted to be in the Champions League, but we didn’t deserve it,’ Van Dijk, the captain, continued. We’ll be giving it our all to prove that our inclusion in the Europa League was well-deserved. We’re going to give the Europa League a shot. Tomorrow is the first day of our hard labor.
Every day, we put in a lot of extra effort. Everyone is getting acclimated to the fact that there will always be new players and up-and-coming players. There is a lot of promise and I can see some positive outcomes already. We’re taking it one match at a time.
“Let’s not go too far ahead of ourselves. This is no different from every other game we play in any other competition. The future looks bright with so many talented young players emerging. We didn’t play as well as we wаnted to in the first half of the last game.
The enthusiasm we shown, though, bodes well for the year ahead. It may just be September, but we’re already rocking a hоt new style.
