Liverpool do not need massive rebuild – Klopp

LONDON (Agencies): Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says he does not believe his squad requires a “massive rebuild” this summer. Four successive top-flight defeats have left the defending Premier League champions in sixth place, 19 points behind leaders Manchester City.

Twelve members of Klopp’s squad are aged 28 or over, including nine of their regular first-team players. “I don’t think it is time for a massive rebuild like how I understand it,” German coach Klopp, 53, said. “The squad of this year didn’t have the chance to play together one time really.
