Fabinho tells Liverpool team-mates 'joy' will be key to title success


Klopp's efforts since joining the club in 2015 have pushed them close to the pinnacle, with last season's defeat in the Champions League final their best accomplishment in recent years.

You can't go and get an absolute top-liner unless they've only got a couple of seasons left of their career or you go and buy the next really good young thing and nearly bleed him in for a year or so. "I think that he will renew his contract beyond 2022", he said.

"If he is to become champion or Champions League victor, he will 99.9 percent stay longer".

The former Liverpool and England striker told Goal: "It is so much easier if you're a scout or you're in the recruitment department of any other club bar the top six".

Klopp has been previously linked with Bayern Munich and the Bavarians remain keen on bringing him to the Allianz Arena one day.

"He is flexible and ambitious enough to think about this opportunity, if there is another opportunity".

There will be no Virgil van Dijk in the team as the Dutchman is suspended, meaning there is some huge responsibility on his shoulders going into the game.

"Klopp always had a disadvantage and had to compensate".

That said, Liverpool might just have a surprise counter for the Poland global.

To go and get someone in the guts of their career [aged] 24 or 25 who is top of the tree, it's so hard and that's the only type of player who can improve teams if they're world class.

Jurgen Klopp's current contract with Liverpool ends in 2021/22 but the fans want him to stay beyond that. At Liverpool, I see it the other way around.

Apart from Liverpool and Barcelona, European champions Real Madrid have also been linked with a move for the player.

"Players like Joel Matip, James Milner or Jordan Henderson may not have the level to play at Bayern, but they work at Liverpool, because this team knows what they do".

Bayern take to the field against Augsburg in the Bundesliga on Friday, meaning they will have less recovery time than their opponents.

"It will not be clear, but I see Liverpool in the lead in the end".
