Klopp only satisfied with Champions League qualification

In a press conference held on Thursday, Jurgen Klopp was asked whether Gerrard will continue this new chapter of his career by assuming control of an Academy team himself, to which he answered "There is not a real announcement in this moment, but what I can probably say is yes".

Lallana, he said, is scheduled to return to training after next weekend's meeting with Crystal Palace.

Palace are nearly certain to bid for the 27-year-old, but Klopp revealed on Thursday that there is "no clause" in the loan deal with regards to a permanent move.

Garcia feels that while captain Jordan Henderson is doing a good job, Liverpool need someone with world class leadership qualities to guide a squad he believes is brimming with talent. He enjoys it a lot. "I'm pretty sure. But we will tell you exactly which team when we want to tell".

"Yes he will be a coach of the youth team next season".

Liverpool are now third in the Premier League table and on course with six matches remaining to claim a Champions League berth for the first time since 2014.

Liverpool are in the thick of the race for the top four and now lie in third, six points ahead of Manchester United in fifth.

'That they are really, really good friends - maybe best friends - and it helps us a lot, that they play together in the Brazil national team helps us, that they are both so unbelievably skilled helps us a lot, but if they tried to do it alone, no chance.

FC's Steve Nicol takes aim at Liverpool's struggles against teams below them in the Premier League table.

The system can be very effective but Liverpool's players are not used to playing it yet, and prior to the trip to Stoke they hadn't had any significant time on the training pitch to work on it. We will fight for the result. "It was never the case - actually I lose a bit of respect if people say things like this", he said, as reported by the Mirror.
