Jurgen Klopp insists that his current squad is the strongest he’s had since joining Liverpool, as he prepares for Wednesday night’s Champions League clash with Benfica.
“Since I am here we always had great teams, to be honest, I loved them all,” he said. “But now we have a bigger squad, high quality, all fit, which is the first time since I am here that it is the case, more experience.
“Quite a few boys are here since I am here, so that means we know much more about each other. Yeah, it’s the strongest team.”
With a fully fit squad to select from, it will be interesting how the boss plays this one. Will he field a full-strength starting XI or will he leave one or two on the bench in the hope they aren’t needed and will be fresh for Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final with Man City?
