This is a competition made for both Klopp and Liverpool …

Andy Robertson - The Solution At Left-Back?

Andy Robertson - The Solution At Left-Back?

So we’re all in agreement then? Andy Robertson is the best left-back who ever lived and will go on to win the Ballon D’or for Liverpool? Yes? Yes. Good. Glad that’s cleared up. In all seriousness, I didn’t expect to see Robertson just yet. He hadn’t played much for the Reds in pre-season and Klopp had previously indicated that he was still settling in.

Scouting Jean-Michael Seri - The Archetypal Playmaker

Poise. Class. Creativity. Bountiful vocabulary has been used to describe the underrated Ivorian midfielder, currently plying his trade in a young, vibrant Nice team, coached by the Klopp-like Lucian Favre and playing alongside the likes of Vincent Koziello, Younes Belhanda and Allasane Plea. With a talented squad capable of hanging with Ligue 1’s opulent giants, Nice, on the whole, could be described very similarly to the man who often carries their midfield – underrated, under the radar, and yet seriously …
