During today’s pre-match conference for our away fixture against Swansea, Klopp admitted that he is likely to go the rest of the campaign with the squad he currently has at his disposal. He refused to rule out bringing in any new players, but did insist that the club aren’t actively looking for new arrivals, stating;
Klopp opted not to fuel any transfer rumours and refused to comment on whether there had been any interest or an approach for Daniel Sturridge. The latest in the rumour mill is that Sevilla have contacted the club regarding a possible loan deal for the 28 year old Sturridge, who has featured only nine times in the Premier League this season.
“If there are any rumours, I am not aware of them but it is not important,” said Klopp. “We will see what happens until January 31. We have a long and very decisive part of the season still to play. We need all of our players, we will see how it will be.”
Klopp also talked about the team, squad depth and what lies ahead in terms of rotation, comparing each of our upcoming games to a final of sorts:
“We have a strong team, a skilled squad, so we need to win football games. To win football games you need to perform. We know this is the decisive part for the rest of the season, now we need to be ready again. There’s no alternative to rotate. It was necessary for what’s coming up now. We still have to use this physical power. It’s getting very interesting now; each game becomes a final.”
