Klopp tinkering good for Liverpool squad says Adam Lallana

The German is sure to change his side again against Watford this weekend.

Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana has told the club’s official website that manager Jurgen Klopp’s squad rotation is good for the side.

Since taking charge back in October, the German boss has consistently tinkered with his team week on week depending on Liverpool’s opponents.

That has largely been down to him still trying to find his best eleven at Anfield, with a number of injuries having robbed him of the likes of Daniel Sturridge, James Milner and several other stars.

Some believe that the constant tinkering is not a good thing for the squad, but Lallana insists the opposite is the truth.

“The manager tinkers his team more or less for most games, which I think is a good thing – especially when you’ve got a big squad and lots of games,” he told liverpoolfc.com.

It keeps the squad together and you always feel a part of it; you never feel you’re in the team but you never feel you’re out of the team.”

“With all that combined, it brings good feeling among the group. I’m looking forward to the next game and hopefully achieving something special this season.”

While the rotation of the side has hurt Liverpool in recent weeks, especially in the loss to Newcastle, it is likely to be something that will continue.

The German has mostly been robbed of having his best players available, with several injuries having forced him to chop and change during his spell in charge.

Perhaps when the likes of Daniel Sturridge, James Milner, Philippe Coutinho and several others are back at full fitness, he will abandon his rotation policy.

Although, based on Lallana’s comments, that would not be welcomed by him.
