With the announcement of Jurgen Klopp’s retirement, while attention is focused on the candidates for the next coach, the departure of players is also being discussed.
It cannot be denied that this could affect not only the players whose contracts expire after this season, but also Mohamed Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Virgil Van Dijk, who are under contract until the summer of 2025.
The 32-year-old center back, who captains Liverpool and also leads the team as captain of the Dutch national team, refuted reports to the contrary in a recent interview about his future being clouded, and said he loves the club and its fans.
“It’s much taken out of context. To be 100% clear, I’m fully committed to the club,”
“I love the club, I love the fans. It is fully taken out of context. It’s not about me, it’s not about I, It’s about us and nothing has changed [on his situation].”
“Five days ago we weren’t even speaking about my contract, so it’s silly. My full focus is on making sure this year can be a very special year and obviously a big announcement in the last couple of days, it’s been a shock to each one of us connected to the club. I feel exactly what the fans have been feeling.”
“We mean business here. We want to crack on, we want to achieve things we dreamed of at the start of the season. Don’t get it twisted, I’m fully committed to the club. I love it. I’m the captain and we’re going to go for it all. Let’s see how that goes.”Men in Blazers
