Liverpool’s efforts to rebuild its midfielders led to the acquisition of Argentine midfielder Alexis Mac Allister and Hungarian midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai ahead of preseason. The team quickly addressed the issues they had faced up to last season.
However, Jordan Henderson and Fabinho left the team due to the Saudi Arabian aggression. In an attempt to secure a defensive midfielder, Liverpool brought in Japanese midfielder Wataru Endo, who had a high duel winning percentage in the Bundesliga.
Liverpool then acquired Dutch U-21 midfielder Ryan Gravenberch, who can play both defensively and as a central midfielder, just before the transfer deadline.
Former Liverpool midfielder Graeme Souness, referring to this summer’s reinforcements, expressed hope for the midfielder, who was acquired early in the transfer window, but said that due to the differences between the Bundesliga and the Premier League, it remains to be seen if the national team captain can succeed.
“I like Szoboszlai and I am a big fan of Mac Allister. With Endo, we will wait and see. Getting good reviews playing in the Bundesliga doesn’t mean you will be a success in the Premier League, which is very demanding and the intensity is greater there than anywhere else. Let’s see how he deals with that.”The Mirror
Although he is a Liverpool legend, he is now only a commentator. I don’t think he is closely monitoring how they play in the Bundesliga.
In addition, if we are talking about the difference between the German and English leagues, Dominik Szoboszlai is in the same boat. The difference between Stuttgart, a less powerful club, and RB Leipzig, a Champions League regular, is a poor basis for comparison.
Don’t be fooled by the opinions of the pundits, though, and expect the Japanese midfielder to turn the tables on them.
