Redknapp: 'Liverpool have addressed problems'


Football pundit likes the pressure Klopp is under as Liverpool look like contenders.


Jamie Redknapp is convinced Liverpool are title contenders after they addressed their problems from previous seasons.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have secured the services of goalkeeper Alisson, midfielders Fabinho, Naby Keita and also Xherdan Shaqiri this summer.

However, former Liverpool midfielder Redknapp expressed his delight at the business the Reds have done so far.

"What I like about Liverpool is that they've addressed problems. He [Klopp] hasn't messed around," Redknapp told Sky Sports.


"He knew he had to get a goalkeeper and he did it early. In defence, he knew he needed to strengthen and bought the best in Virgil van Dijk. He cost £70m but I reckon you could sell him for a lot more than that now. He's been brilliant for that back four, he's made everyone look better.

"Liverpool will concede goals because it's a consequence of how they play. They are so attacking and sometimes they leave gaps in the midfield and it's hard for whoever is in that area but I'd rather have that type of football - that's what you want to see. I think Man City, Liverpool and Tottenham when they're at their best are a joy to watch.

"Of course you want to win something and there's pressure every single year as a manager. You only need one or two bad seasons and it's all over. I like this pressure Klopp is under and they look like contenders.

"With the players they've bought in, I don't know what else they could have done. They always seem to buy players and Klopp turns them into stars and match winners and players that will be worth so much more than they already are.

"There is a pressure to a certain extent but it's a positive pressure."
