If we look at Liverpool, we will see that the team is not complaining about the lack of stars. So they don’t need superstars from the outside.
You may already know that Liverpool have one of the best goalkeepers in the world. Alison has become Kopa’s best goalkeeper, the best goalkeeper in the Champions League, and has been included in the UEFA symbolic team.
Of the top 4 defenders in the defense, three are among the top ten most expensive defenders. Moreover, they occupy the first, second, and third places (Alexander-Arnold 110m pounds; Virgil Van Dyke -100m pounds; Andrew Robertson -80m pounds).
Liverpool have three superstars in the attack: Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane are among the top five most expensive forwards (150-150 million pounds). There is also a Brazilian Firmino, valued at 90m pounds.
Liverpool Lacks Superstars in the Midfield
In the midfield, Klopp has no superstar. However, this is not an accident at all. Moreover, it is a characteristic of Klopp’s system. Liverpool’s lack of creativity in the midfield does not necessarily mean its weakness.
Moreover, it is a decision by Klopp – the Liverpool midfielders are not the creators, but the curators and helpers.
A Right-back Alexander-Arnold broke the Premier League record for assists. Like Trent, Liverpool’s left-back, Andrew Robertson, will not be embraced in this aspect. As for the forward, the trio of Salah, Mane, and Firmino scored 56 goals and 15 assists last season.
Liverpool’s restless three-person midfield gives the backs the freedom they need to attack. The miles covered by Henderson, Wijnaldum, and Fabinho on the pitch make the Liverpool attack even easier.
They s are allowed to play as close as possible to their opponent’s net and do not have to back down after each missed ball. For this mission, Klopp does not need superstars in the midfield.
The fact is that the car made by a German specialist works flawlessly, and for him, the well-connected parts of the Liverpool engine are more a priority than a gilded frame.
