Ray Clemence: Jurgen Klopp is ‘nearest thing’ Liverpool have had to Bill Shankly

  Ray Clemence: Jurgen Klopp is ‘nearest thing’ Liverpool have had to Bill Shankly Former Liverpool goalkeeper Ray Clemence has claimed Jurgen Klopp is the closest thing Liverpool have had to Bill Shankly, reports Sky Sports. Shankly won numerous titles and trophies in his 15-year spell as Liverpool manager but one thing he never won was the European Cup. He did manage Uefa Cup but this weekend Klopp has the chance to go one better than his predecessor. Clemence was signed by Shankly in 1967, and was a major player during the manager’s final years in charge. He experienced the fantastic relationship Shankly held with the fans and the unity that he brought between them. According to Clemence, Klopp is doing something similar: “In terms of the relationship he’s got between himself and the players and the fans, (he did) exactly what Bill Shankly did. He pulled the club all together, so it was one strong unit that would do anything to help each other out to get through whatever.” Liverpool are aiming to lift the trophy for the first time since 2005, but go into the game with Real Madrid as underdogs.

  Champions League winner tells Klopp to deal with the pressure Former Liverpool assistant manager Pako Ayestaran has told Jurgen Klopp to make the players believe on Saturday, reports Sky Sports. Ayesteran was assistant at Liverpool from 2004 until 2007 when Rafa Benitez was in charge and he was part of the side that made the famous comeback against AC Milan in Istanbul. Liverpool go into the game as big underdogs, with Real Madrid going for their third consecutive title in the competition. Madrid also have plenty more experience with nearly all the squad having been together throughout that period. Ayesteran thinks there will be massive nerves for Liverpool ahead of the game because just like the 2005 side, this is new to basically all the players. However, he says the manager needs to help them get over their fears: “Jurgen Klopp has to try to convince them it’s just a game, and they have to just concentrate on football matters.

Plans have already begun ahead of next season at Anfield, with a number of transfer targets identified. Fabinho and Naby Keita will also arrive as Klopp’s signings, with preparations well underway for the 2018/19 campaign.

Klopp to reassess transfer plans .
Jurgen Klopp is to reassess his goalkeeping options after conceding defeat in the chase for Roma stopper Alisson, according to the Mirror. Reports had been circulating in Brazil, Alisson’s home country, that Liverpool had made a £60million bid for the player, but it is in fact believed that no such bid has been made as the Reds believe that such a fee is far too high. Roma are keen to keep a hold of Alisson, especially considering they sold Mo Salah to the Reds last summer for less than £40million. The Serie A side have put a huge price tag of £70 million on Alisson’s head and the club are insistent that they won’t sell the keeper for less than their evaluation. However Jurgen Klopp is said to be completely against paying such a high price for a goalkeeper and has told his board that he’s not prepared to meet Roma’s valuation. Klopp is still desperate to sign a goalkeeper this summer with Simon Mignolet looking set to depart and Klopp wanting to demote Loris Karius after his Champions League final nightmare. Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak had been another target for Liverpool but he is also likely to demand a high transfer fee, leaving Klopp needing to reassess the transfer market.
