Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp should improve the creativity of his team in the upcoming transfer market to establish a long-term dominance in the Premier League, according to pundits
Klopp led Liverpool to their first Premier League title win in 30 years, and he did it in a record-breaking manner.
Although one single point separated them from smashing a 100-point barrier, the Reds wrapped up the title with seven games to spare – an achievement no team has managed before.
Indeed, Klopp has turned a once struggling team into a force to be reckoned with, winning the Champions League and the Premier League in a two-year span.
However, the former Arsenal midfielder Stewart Robson believes Liverpool would use some extra creativity to maintain their dominance of England football.
“Manchester City got 100 points, and Liverpool got 99, so statistically…” Robson said on the Gab and Juls podcast, as relayed by Express Sport.
“No, I don’t think [Liverpool] are [better]. I think Manchester City could rip teams apart; they played some magnificent football.
“Liverpool play a certain style of football which is good on the eye, but I still think they’ve got to add a little bit more creativity to be a top side year in, year out.
“They’re going to have to develop their style a bit, I think, to stay at the top.
“Man City two seasons ago were a magnificent side to watch, they played football that nobody else could play, and that’s why I’d say Man City are the best side I’ve seen over the last few years.”
Robson’s words very much stay in line with what the former Liverpool great Graeme Souness had to recommend Klopp for the upcoming transfer window.
“I think they should [strengthen],” Souness said on Sky Sports at the weekend.
“I think the time to strengthen is when you are at the top, and you’re not buying players who have to come in and be an immediate success.
“You can bring them in, have a good look at them as they did with Fabinho, as they did with Andy Robertson. So I think they should.”
Liverpool have been heavily linked with Bayern Munich’s Thiago Alcantara recently, and there’s a genuine feeling that the ex-Barcelona midfielder may swap the Allianz Arena for Anfield this summer.
Thiago’s tactical intelligence, paired with an exceptional vision and superb playmaking skills, would add a new dimension to Klopp’s midfield line.
