Current Liverpool side better than 2005 CL winners, says Carragher

  • While everyone's watching Virgil van Dijk Roberto Firmino might steal the show

Jurgen Klopp will speak with Virgil van Dijk ahead of his Southampton return.

The Dutch worldwide moved to Anfield for £75 million (85m euros, $104m) in January, but has been on the winning side in just one of his four outings for Liverpool since.

Despite Van Dijk scoring the victor in an FA Cup Merseyside derby on debut against Everton, the Dutchman hasn't had an easy start to his Liverpool career with Klopp's men failing to win in his last three appearances against Swansea, West Brom and Tottenham.

He's had a brilliant season with the club, and Klopp is eager to heap praise on the feisty, clever attacker whom he's trusted to lead the line. He's in good shape and looks fresh but he has been injured twice now.

"But this team is better than the Liverpool team I played in that won the Champions League in 2005".

Manager Mauricio Pellegrino played 13 games for Liverpool in 2005 and was first-team coach at the club under Rafa Benitez between 2008-10.

"No one will talk about my performance in general".


"It was a very public deal and the numbers, even if they are not 100 per cent, are okay so maybe they are really happy and they say: "Thank you for all the money we have now". I would rather think not at the moment, ' Klopp added. However, Tottenham, in fifth, are just two points behind.

Van Dijk is expecting a hot reception but insists it will not impact his performance for his new club. I am very connected to the children too, I am the father of two... I have moved on, they have moved on. "I think we've got a proper player - he's an outstanding player as far as I'm concerned".

"He was rejected as a kid at Celtic, went part-time at Queen's Park, got a chance at Dundee United and took it, went to Hull and took the opportunity, and now he's at one of the biggest clubs in the world".

"Obviously it will be nice to see the players I have played with and the friends I have there but, for me, it is going to be about one thing only and that is to win the game".

The cluster of players in the Liverpool squad with Southampton connections means the Holland global will not be alone in experiencing a buffeting, but Klopp intends to speak to the centre half given how soon since his departure Van Dijk will return. How I said, Adam is not happy about the reaction, as I was not happy about it.

"The main focus is always the next game, in this case Southampton". We really think much more about the football game and what we have to do and not about how we can avoid different situations from outside because we don't have influence.
