A new Liverpool for a new season as Klopp marks another player for imminent exit

We all saw it coming! Jurgen Klopp’s arrival at the Anfield was going to result in massive squad changes. And even after what was more of a silent Winter transfer window for the German and the Merseyside team, Summer was bound to be different. With the erstwhile Dortmund boss willing to let club’s skipper, Henderson go by the end of the season after being linked with Tottenham, nobody else seemed too influential to be discarded, and now, central back and Slovakia international, Martin Skrtel is set to be sold by the club during the next transfer window.

Just recently back from an injury that had threatened to end his season, the 31-year-old was a shadow of himself during the shocking 3 – 2 loss at the hands of Southampton after Liverpool had earlier taken a 2-goal lead. His performances came under criticisms by pundits and fans alike, and reports say a replacement in Schalke’s Joel Matip is already being prepared for him. Matip would arrive Anfield by Summer when his current deal with the Bundesliga side expires and he becomes a free agent.

Liverpool have been inconsistent in their performances since Klopp took over from Rodgers last year, with the current squad not able to effectively translate his ideas on the pitch of play every now and then. His high pressing style of football isn’t common in the EPL, and he would sure need to bring in players that can replicate his philosophy during every game and on a consistent basis. Comes in Matip, exits Skrtel. After almost a decade at the club since joining from the Russian side, St Petersburg, the end of an illustrious career at Anfield might have come for the defender.

  1. skrtel should have been shown the anfield exit long ago…he never convinced since day 1 when he stepped into anfield and even when he won the club’s “player of the year”, he still did not convince…where’re all the skrtel supporters today…???i was chastised for saying that skrtel is a downright mediocre player during his heyday and i still stand by what i said about him today…his lack of fitness is only a small factor in his poor outing against saints…the true hard fact is that he’s a well below mediocre player plying his trade at anfield who doesn’t deserve the red shirt at all from day 1…skrtel has to be shown the anfield exit…and this had better be quick…!!!

  2. Problem with LFC is most players are overrated. Starting from the captain to Mingnolet then Can to Coutinyo and Sturridge to Firmino. We don’t have players like Gerrard, Alonso, Carragher and Suarez. Sorry to point that out. It’s time someone did.

  3. But it doesn’t have to be that way, says Judith Fertig.
