With the Liverpool fans here in the Transfer Tavern nervous about their massive game against Arsenal on Friday night, the punters propping up our bar are eager to take their minds off of things to do with it.
Indeed, while our resident Reds would back their side against anyone, it’s a huge game in the race for the Champions League and the idea of falling behind their top four rivals is too scary to even entertain right now. With that in mind, some insight shared by the Newcastle Chronicle into Jurgen Klopp’s thinking on an Anfield legend has proven rather interesting.
Within their piece on Rafa Benitez’s thinking ahead of the January transfer window, the outlet shed some light on Jurgen Klopp’s relationship with the Liverpool legend. They claim he and the Spaniard enjoy a positive relationship and that Benitez remains at the forefront of Klopp’s mind when it comes to thinking about coaches to develop his younger players.
The Toon Army have been linked to the likes of Danny Ings and Sheyi Ojo in the last couple of windows and a potentially productive working relationship has with Liverpool has certainly pleased the punters in our bar.
If Liverpool can help Benitez out in the January transfer market, it’d be a big boost for all. With Klopp having an array of youngsters on hand to develop, sending them to St. James’ Park would be positive all around.
