Liver­pool aim for ti­tle push

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport Starts Here -

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.
