Some Liverpool fans have been bemoaning the news that Sepp van den Berg and Marko Grujic could be used as squad players next season.
The Reds have had an extremely difficult campaign, failing to defend their Premier League title and now desperately battling to finish in the top four.
Key players have under-performed, such as Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino – they have scored just 13 league goals between them – while Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip are all long-term injury absentees.
The hope from these fans is clearly that Jurgen Klopp delves into the transfer market this summer, freshening up his squad and adding quality in the process.
According to the Liverpool Echo [via The Anfield Buzz], however, Liverpool could show faith in Van den Berg and Grujic next season, with the pair currently on loan at Preston North End and Porto, respectively.

It isn’t exactly a piece of news that will get Reds supporters too excited and some took to Twitter to voice their disapproval at the update.
“Delete or get blocked this is offensive“
“If these start next season, we deserve everything we get“
“Another 30 plus years without a league“
“Another 2-3 decades before we win anything again. A signing of natural winger and natural striker would be nice, add in a creative midfielder“
“This club is dusted”
“We won the CL and signed Van Den Berg and Adrian. This club man. The highest highs and the lowest lows”
