Jordan Henderson expects Jurgen Klopp to bring summer reinforcements to Liverpool

first_img1 Jordan Henderson Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson expects manager Jurgen Klopp to bring in reinforcements this summer but believes the current squad can prove they are good enough.Klopp has already made one signing – Serbian teenager Marko Grujic who will join for pre-season having gone back on loan to Red Star Belgrade – and there are expected to be several more new additions.When the German took over in October he told owners Fenway Sports Group he believed the squad was good enough for him to work with immediately with no major changes but on the evidence of performances so far he will want to bring in his own players.He is trying to tie up a deal for Schalke’s Cameroon centre-back Joel Matip, who is available on a free transfer come the end of the season, but the squad will need a major overhaul in all departments.That effectively leaves players playing for their futures. Midfielder Joe Allen admitted as much earlier this month as he has struggled for pitch time, and Henderson accepts the only way to convince their manager is to start winning more often.Since Klopp took over in mid-October Liverpool have won back-to-back league matches just twice and taken 19 points from 14 matches but a failure to score and mistakes at the back have cost them dearly.They are the primary areas Klopp needs to improve but Liverpool’s captain is hopeful the existing squad can make a case for themselves.“Football teams will always look to strengthen, always look to improve, but us as players we just have to give everything for now and try to win as many games, put in as many performances as possible,” he said.“I really believe we have a good squad of players but we need to be winning.“The way that we played and the chances that we had (against Manchester United) we need to be winning the game but we never did.“We need to be better in certain areas but we need to keep going right until the end of the season and see where we are.”last_img read more
