Liverpool aim for title push
LIVERPOOL are determined to end the trend of selling their best players during the close season in order to build a squad capable of consistently challenging for major honours, manager Jurgen Klopp said.
Liverpool have sold a host of high-profile players, including strikers Luis Suarez and Fernando Torres, midfielders Javier Mascherano and Xabi Alonso, and winger Raheem Sterling to rival clubs in England and other European countries in recent years.
The Merseyside club have already had to fight off advances from French champions Paris St Germain to keep influential midfielder Philippe Coutinho, according to British media reports.
When asked if it was possible to stop key players leaving the Premier League club, Klopp told the Liverpool Echo: “Yes, I think we can do this. It’s one of the targets for the coming years.” — Reuters.
