Почему "Ливерпуль" выжидает

MyLiverpool.ru - 5 hours 11 min ago

"Красные" еще не влили свежих сил в состав Юргена Клоппа после своего триумфа в Лиге Чемпионов в Мадриде более трех недель назад.

Предсезонка начнется для большей части команды менее чем через две недели, и первый товарищеский матч состоится против "Транмир Роверз" 11 июля, а поединок "Community Shield" назначен на 4 августа.

Это противостояние с "Манчестер Сити" станет первой официальной игрой "Ливерпуля" предстоящего сезона, в котором они будут бороться за семь трофеев, и можно предполагать, что состав должен быть усилен.

Но, в беседе на подкасте The Transfer Window, Норткрофт объяснил, почему клуб занял выжидательную позицию, обладая командой, которая "почти укомплектована".

"Я думаю, что это признак эволюции "Ливерпуля". Они строят свою команду, вероятно, уже шесть лет",

- сказал он.

"И я говорил с Майклом Эдвардсом, спортивным директором, об этом в прошлом году".

"Они чувствуют, что прошли тот этап, когда пытались собрать боеспособный коллектив и старались подписать игроков, которые помогут развиваться, чтобы вывести клуб вперед, достигнув такого положения, когда можно будет считать, что дело почти завершено".

"Это та фраза, которую я слышал в Ливерпуле, когда речь шла о трансферах в прошлом году: "пора двигаться к завершению первого этапа".

«Это не означает самодовольства, но это означает, что у них действительно есть команда высокого класса, высококлассные игроки на большинстве позиций, и что самое важное - это то, с чем тренер действительно отождествляет себя и чего он хочет".

"И теперь они находятся в состоянии, когда они могут просто выбирать - спокойно и рассудительно - лучших игроков, которые им нужны на самом высоком уровне рынка".

"Так пришли в команду Ван Дейк и Алиссон за рекордные деньги, я думаю, это тенденция, которую мы увидим в дальнейшем".

"И я ожидаю, что "Ливерпуль" не будет спешить, пытаясь разобраться с более мелкими сделками - такими, как, например, с Симоном Миньоле  и  некоторыми более молодыми игроками, которые уйдут в аренду, а также продолжит работу с Дивоком Ориги по новому контракту, что, как я ожидаю, произойдет вскоре".

"Кроме того, они поработают в том направлении, чтобы, возможно, подписать пару очень молодых игроков для развития и попытаться отобрать тех лучших игроков в верхнем сегменте рынка, которые смогут в дальнейшем продвинуть их вперед".

"Я думаю, что это положение, в котором хотели бы оказаться многие клубы, это полная противоположность перегретой ситуации, в которой находятся "Юнайтед".

"Ливерпуль» будет работать со списками, которые они составляли последние три, четыре, даже пять лет, но теперь они будут работать над одним, двумя или тремя вариантами, а не с десятком".

"Теперь они могут позволить себе выбирать элитных футболистов".

Норткрофт продолжал приводить свои аргументы, основываясь на оценке стабильности состава.

"Если вы оцените команду, как такую, в которой всё в основном взаимосвязано, ожидайте присутствия Джеймса Милнера как минимум до 2022 года, а некоторых игроков - до 2024 года",

- сказал он.

"Для этого потребуется немалый фонд заработной платы, но они только что заработали около 96 миллионов фунтов стерлингов, выиграв Лигу чемпионов" .

«У них имеется рекордная прибыль, они получают все больше и больше денег от своих бизнес - контрактов".

"И в целом, они сейчас в довольно хорошем положении".

"Я полагаю, что еще одна позиция, которую они, возможно, захотят укрепить этим летом, - это дополнительный вратарь, из-за ухода Миньоле".

"Но вернемся к тому факту, что на мой взгляд, большинство клубов хотели бы оказаться в таком положении, когда на самом деле вы можете оперировать текущим составом, и смотреть лишь на очень, очень крупные подписания, нсейчас или потом",

И он предположил, что потребуется разве что еще один промах в Премьер-лиге, чтобы уговорить Клоппа принять более решительные меры на трансферном рынке.

"Только если следующий сезон превратится в еще одну неудачную кампанию по завоеванию лиги, то я думаю, что лишь тогда Клопп начнет испытывать потребность подумать об усилении команды",

- добавил Норткрофт.

"В настоящий момент он очень спокоен и позитивен по поводу того, что у него есть".

Интересно, что Норткрофту также был предложен для обсуждения сценарий продажи Мохамеда Салаха, например, в случае ну очень крупного предложения, и он объяснил, что это может быть вполне осуществимо.

Николя Пепе из "Лилля" был отмечен как очевидная долгосрочная цель для гипотетической замены Салаха, и он согласился с тем, что ивуариец "очень подходит" требованиям клуба:

"Нет давления, и нет желания продавать".

"Но они сейчас находятся в таком хорошем положении, когда, если кто-то захочет предложить сумму, сопоставимую с полученной за Филиппе Коутиньо - что конечно мало вероятно, если говорить о продаже Салаха, но очевидно, может возникнуть сумма, близкая к той о которой мы говорим - то это может подарить главному тренеру вариант".

"Они также могут принять во внимание, хочет ли сам игрок уйти. Это та позиция, в которую они попали с Коутиньо".

"Так, скажем, через год "Реал Мадрид определится с Салахом", предложит 150 - 200 миллионов фунтов стерлингов, игрок пожелает уйти, и Юрген Клопп подумает: "Хорошо, это отличная сделка с точки зрения возможности реинвестировать в этот состав", я думаю, они будут в состоянии сделать это".

"У них все будет в порядке, и способ, с помощью которого они работали по поводу трансферов, заключается в том, что намеченные цели они изучали по крайней мере в течение сезона, если не дольше".

"И Пепе очень вписывается в это видение".

Позиция Норткрофта достаточно убедительна и совпадает с мнением остальных местных журналистов, поскольку "Ливерпуль" в состоянии оперировать текущим составом, заменив таких, как Миньоле, Альберто Морено и Дэниел Старридж .

Есть на прицеле некоторые "очень молодых игроки", такие как Конор Брэдли из "Дэнгэннон Юнайтед" в то время, как любые громкие сделки, по-видимому, должны заключаться только в том случае, если представится такая возможность".

Liverpool make surprise U-turn in decision over Simon Mignolet’s future

ThisIsAnfield.com - 5 hours 17 min ago

Liverpool were expected to be in pursuit of a replacement for Simon Mignolet ahead of his exit this summer, but now that appears to have changed.


The Reds have been widely reported as weighing up options in goal, at left-back and in attack, with Mignolet linked with a move away to follow Alberto Moreno and Daniel Sturridge.

Having served admirably as Alisson‘s backup in 2018/19, making just two appearances but proving the ultimate professional behind the scenes, the Belgian could be forgiven for seeking a departure.

Southampton‘s Alex McCarthy, Cardiff’s Neil Etheridge and Adrian, formerly of West Ham, have all been touted as possible replacements.

But it seems Jurgen Klopp has changed tack, with the Times‘ Paul Joyce reporting that the club “expect Mignolet to remain at the club next season.”

This comes with “Klopp valuing his attitude and approach to being backup goalkeeper” and for “how he has dealt with a period in his career in which he has been demoted.”

Backhanded compliments aside, Joyce cites how Mignolet “signed a long-term contract in 2016,” believed to run for a further two seasons, puts Liverpool in a strong position.

And he adds that “for the situation to change, there would need to be the offer of a permanent move from a club that excited Mignolet and also guaranteed Liverpool a fair fee.”

“There is no suggestion that an attractive move and fee is about to force a rethink,” Joyce claims, unlike with Lucas Leiva‘s £5 million move to Lazio in 2017.

This is, of course, all well and good, but it remains difficult to believe that Mignolet would be content to spend another season on the bench.

In fact, last summer the 31-year-old criticised the club’s “bizarre” decision to allow Loris Karius to leave on loan while not being prepared to sanction his permanent exit.

“A goalkeeper who was preferred to me last season may leave on a loan basis. Strange,” he said.

“[Karius leaving] does not change anything for me. I have always been clear: I want to play. No. 2 or No. 3 makes little difference. Playing minutes is the most important.”

Klopp later warned Mignolet that “discussing your individual problems in public doesn’t make too much sense,” and instead last month, a similar message came via his brother.

He confirmed Liverpool would “have to find a replacement,” as Mignolet “wants to play and will need to change club to do that.”

How this stance would have changed in just over three weeks is unclear—and, seemingly, unlikely.

Junior Firpo not on Jurgen Klopp's radar

HEAD NEWS - 6 hours 25 min ago

Liverpool are not interested in signing Real Betis defender Junior Firpo this summer.

Reports in Spain over the weekend claimed the European champions were ready to trigger a €50million buyout clause to land the versatile Firpo.

Madrid newspaper Marca suggested the Reds were not put off by the fee required to sign Firpo as Jurgen Klopp chases down cover and competition for current left-back Andy Robertson.

Manchester United are also reportedly interested, with the two Premier League giants set to fight it out to land Betis' 22-year-old left-back, according to the Spanish publication.

With Alberto Moreno set to leave Anfield this month, the Reds have something of a pressing concern on the left side of their defence with Robertson the only senior member of the squad who specialises in the role.

James Milner played there for virtually the entirety of the 2016-17 season, but the 33-year-old was returned to his favoured midfield role when Robertson was brought to Anfield two years ago.

Despite a lack of depth at left-back, however, claims that Firpo will become the first signing of the summer at Anfield are inaccurate.

The ECHO understands the Santo Domingo-born Firpo is not on the Reds' radar and has not been discussed by manager Klopp or sporting director Michael Edwards.

Liverpool won't be paying a €50m buyout clause for a player who would come into the fold as back-up to the influential Robertson.

Unlike the events of last year when Liverpool paid out around £170m to sign Xherdan Shaqiri, Alisson Becker, Naby Keita and Fabinho, the Reds are set for a much more subdued summer.

A left-back is likely to be on the agenda before the close of the window on August 8, but a big-money move for Firpo won't come to fruition.

The Spanish U21 international was asked about his future over the weekend, with Real Madrid reportedly also interested.

"Did Madrid call me? If you want to know, you can ask them," Firpo was quoted as saying. "I’m here with the national team and that’s all I want to think about.

"I have said that Real Madrid was more attractive to me because my father is from Madrid. This has nothing to do with where I would rather play.

"Honestly, the team that is most interesting to me right now is Real Betis, where I have been since I was young."

Liverpool are set for a more conservative spending spree this window with Klopp happy to merely tweak a squad that finished as Premier League runners-up with 97 points and Champions League winners.

Daniel Sturridge's exit has perhaps increased the need for another addition to the forward areas while Moreno will need replacing, but blockbuster deals are not expected to be forthcoming.

Liverpool spent close to £250m across two transfer windows in 2018 to bulk up Klopp's squad with top-class talent and enable the club to challenge for honours long term.

As such, Klopp is relaxed about the prospect of adding to his ranks as the Reds get set for another big season.

Fantastic future in store - Van Dijk

Liverpool FC on Sky Sports - 6 hours 29 min ago
"So much quality" at Anfield, says Netherlands international defender

Last Updated: 24/06/19 12:06pm

Virgil van Dijk was in imperious form for Liverpool all season Virgil van Dijk was in imperious form for Liverpool all season Virgil van Dijk was in imperious form for Liverpool all season

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk is confident of a bright future for the club following their sixth Champions League success.

The 27-year-old Netherlands international was instrumental to Liverpool's European conquest last season, as he started every league game and appeared in all but one game on the way to the Champions League final in Madrid.

"I think the future looks pretty bright," said Van Dijk, who also collected the PFA Players' Player of the Year award last term.

"We have a fantastic team with players that want to develop, that want to give everything for the team and for the club.

"[There is] so much quality in the team; sometimes you don't even realise how good [a group of] players we have - and also on the bench that want to play and be part of the team. So we have a fantastic future coming up."

Van Dijk was a key member in a Liverpool defence which conceded fewer goals than any other team in the Premier League last season as they amassed 97 points, missing out to eventual champions Manchester City by a single point.

Van Dijk also praised team-mates like Andy Robertson for their efforts last season Van Dijk also praised team-mates like Andy Robertson for their efforts last season Van Dijk also praised team-mates like Andy Robertson for their efforts last season

But while Van Dijk acknowledges his high level of form, he prefers to see praise shared collectively by the back four and the rest of the team.

"I have been consistent. I've been feeling great, with the help - obviously - of all my team-mates. But everyone has been fantastic," he added.

"If you look around the team, Robbo (Andy Robertson) has had his best season ever. Trent (Alexander-Arnold) has been amazing for such a young guy, so mature. And all the centre-backs... and obviously the rest of the team have been performing at such a high level."

Вирджил ван Дейк: «Будущее «Ливерпуля» выглядит ярким. У нас фантастическая команда»

Sports.ru - 7 hours 12 min ago

Защитник «Ливерпуля» Вирджил ван Дейк поделился мнением о перспективах команды.

«Думаю, что будущее выглядит довольно ярким. У нас фантастическая команда. Игроки хотят развиваться и отдать себя полностью команде.

У нашей команды качественный состав. Иногда даже не осознаешь, насколько хороши футболисты основы, а также парни на скамейке запасных, которые хотят играть и быть частью команды. Так что у нас впереди фантастическое будущее.

Что касается меня, то я показал стабильную игру в прошедшем сезоне. Я прекрасно себя чувствовал, в этом помогли мои партнеры по команде. Каждый из них проявил себя наилучшим образом», – сказал ван Дейк.
