Eliminated from the Champions League and with no chance of winning the Premier League title, Liverpool’s main goal for the rest of the season is to get at least one place in European competitions. In a publication on Friday (16), the English magazine “FourFourTwo” pointed out some of the problems of the Reds that contributed to the bad year of the club.
First, the magazine cited the absence of fans on Anfield Road as a key point for Liverpool’s bad campaign. As coach Jürgen Klopp himself evidenced, in the press conference after eliminating Real Madrid in the Champions League, without the fans the Reds do not have the same “atmosphere” as usual in their games, which pushes the team on the field.
Then the signing of midfielder Thiago Alcântara, champion of Champions with Bayern Munich last season, also did not have the desired effect. However, not because of the player, but because of the circumstances, as he has not yet managed to meet Klopp’s team and has not had the necessary space.
Finally, Mohamed Salah’s future would also have affected the team’s performance. The Egyptian striker has two more years of contract, but expressed his willingness to receive a salary increase, something that has not yet happened. At 28, he did not perform as well in recent seasons with the Reds’ shirt.
