Jurgen Klopp may Change Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp took over Borussia Dortmund from his former club Mainz and almost entirely changed the way Dortmund played. Buy fifa 16 coins and build the best team to challenge players around the world. He took them to greater heights. However Liverpool fans shouldn't forget the fact that in addition to all this, he had a pitiful end to his career at Dortmund in the last 2014-15 season.

I believe that would be when he would work on the loopholes in the system that Brendan Rodgers created. There were quite a few things BR got it wrong.

Dealing with the transfers and the transfer committee - Not disregarding the fact that BR did sign the likes of Sturridge, Coutinho, Can, nevertheless all in all he's failed in recruiting players who would establish themselves well at the club. His influence on the transfer deals were perhaps minimal apart from scouting, observing and convincing the players. Most of the players were either brought in just for the sake of having great depth in the squad (like taking 10 odd players in the 2014-15 transfer window) or these players just could not fit in the system that he implemented (I still don't understand how Balotelli could even play in the system Liverpool employed).

Attracting already established, experienced and world class players: BR simply failed in bringing players of such kind. Agreed, he bought players who have great potential and can be invested upon for the longer term. But can long term investments get you what you want in one season itself? BR was not an LVG, Guardiola, Mourinho who could bring in players of world class quality and who'd have an impact on the style of play that Liverpool plays. All this must be parallel to the inflow of young players, so that they gain experience of playing at higher levels with such quality players. This is one area where (I believe) Klopp would manage pretty well.

Complacency: Yes, you heard me right. This is one thing I have observed right from the first season on Rodgers at Liverpool. The style of play has been so impressive, but we've failed on a majority of occasions  like giving up the Premier League trophy after inching so close to it(that too after 24 years), buying and increasing the squad depth last season and just not being able to do well and thereby faultering in the UCL, Europa League, Premier League, Capital One Cup, FA Cup... one or two of which could have been on our side.

Holding on to the best players: It seems to be an inherent weakness in our club that we just let go of our best players because of tempting offers and lack of success at Liverpool. Torres, Owen and then continuing the tradition was in the BR time when we lost Suarez, Sterling, Gerrard. I'm pretty sure same would be haunting when Coutinho's name pops up in one of such places. Klopp here might have some history wherein he lost Lewandowski, Gotze but I believe if he works on the team and produces great results, not only the best team player will be reluctant to leave but also various interests in the quality players playing elsewhere.

I am not highly confident that Jurgen Klopp will be an instant hit with the results, but surely he can develop a great team if he works more on the loopholes and thus developing the strength.

He's a great manager, tactician, brilliant with the player and the fans, there is no reason as to why cannot be an another Bob Paisley or a Bill Shankly that Liverpool has always wanted.
