PL ‘shocking transfer rumours’ appear…Liverpool captain going to Chelsea? Klopp resigns from his post ‘post-storm’ begins
Virgil van Dijk is connecting with Chelsea. Since Jurgen Klopp announced his intention to resign, Liverpool is experiencing a backlash.
Rumors have been raised that VanDijk will move to Chelsea. The U.K.’s Football London reported that some players’ future became uncertain after Klopp said he would leave Liverpool at the end of this season, and that VanDijk could head to Chelsea.
This was also influenced by VanDijk’s remarks. Earlier, VanDijk told Sky Sports in the U.K. “I don’t know. It’s not just the manager who is changing, but a lot of people are leaving the team. There are so many things that need to change. The club has big things ahead of it, and I wonder what direction it will take. I have to wait and see the situation, but I can’t say for now.”
The reason why van Dijk has been linked to Chelsea is clear. Chelsea are already considering splitting from veteran defender Thiago Silva. Silva is still playing as a key defender for Chelsea, but considering Silva’s age, Chelsea and Silva’s separation will inevitably take place soon. It is no surprise that Chelsea are looking for a center back to replace Silva in preparation for Silva’s departure.
Above all, VanDijk is already a proven resource in the league. VanDijk has displayed consistent performance since moving to Liverpool, ranking second in the 2019 Ballon d’Or after Lionel Messi. Even after returning from a stint in the game due to a cruciate ligament injury, VanDijk still showed off his skills. VanDijk showed better performance than most defenders last season as well.
This is what happened after Klopp’s resignation. It can be called a “post-storm.”
Liverpool announced on its official website on the 26th (Korea Standard Time), saying, “Coach Klopp will lead the team until the 2023-24 season and then organize his eight and a half years of life in Liverpool,” adding, “Coach Klopp will leave the team at the end of this season.”
Liverpool also announced that along with Klopp, his division, Pep Rangers, Peter Kravitz, and Vitor Matos, will leave. In particular, Rangers, who has helped Liverpool tactics a lot as a head coach, is reportedly planning to build his leadership career. 마카오카지노
In an interview with Liverpool, Klopp said, “I think a lot of people will be shocked to hear this. But I have to be able to clearly state this. I love everything about this club, the city, the supporters. I love the team and the staff. But I am confident that I have to make this decision. It is because I am running out of energy.”
“Obviously, there’s no problem now. But I’ve known for a long time that I have to say this at some point. I’m fine now. I know I can’t continue my work. We’ve come together, we’ve gone through everything together, we’ve come to respect and love, and what’s left for you is trust,” he continued calmly.
