Last night it became real after Manchester United’s victory. Liverpool will not play in the Champions League next season. It could be seen coming from the fall of last year and finally, despite a good sprint to finish the campaign, the blow was confirmed.
It is a setback for the team, for the club and for the city. mooring side he had become accustomed to the best luxuries on the continent and to visiting the best stadiums. To the recognition of all of Europe and all football fans in the world. Since that qualifying draw against Hoffenheim At the start of the 2017/18 season which led to their first defeat to Real Madrid in Kiev, they had the Reds in the top club league every season.
Liverpool (this season) pays more in salaries than Manchester City (quoting information from the prestigious Swiss Ramble Twitter account). And if that wasn’t enough, it doesn’t come in through sales like the Sky Blues do with sales like that of Zinchenko, Sterling or Gabriel Jesus. This, coupled with the non-participation in the Champions League and the less attractiveness of quitting for it at Anfield, makes it difficult to see Klopp’s entourage fight for the title next season.
A difficult time is coming. Icons like Firmino or Milner after I did it Mane last year. New acquisitions such as Gakpo or Nunez They are not done acclimatizing yet. Luis Diaz and Thiago They’ve been injured for a long time. So it’s very difficult. The club wants three reinforcements in midfield and one in defense (at least). But with a club following the Liverpool policy of stealthy takeovers to develop them into stars, what can you expect on the banks of the Mersey?
The closest target is MacAllister. Other names that have sounded have been Declan Rijst, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic or Caicedo, from Brighton. However, the club has been undergoing internal restructuring for months since the departure of Michael Edwards and other components of the team’s kit and the arrival of Jorg Schmadtke as sports director has not yet been made official. This, together with the current situation, ensures that there is a lot of skepticism for this summer market. Many things to define, but only one reality. It is Liverpool’s worst moment since 2017.
