Jurgen Klopp speaks out on Mbappe and Sancho

Jurgen Klopp has namechecked Kylian Mbappe when speaking about the world’s best players.

The Liverpool boss also mentioned Jadon Sancho in an interview with Bein Sports.

Klopp was asked for his thoughts on managing some of the world’s best players. Players cited by the interviewer included Mbappe, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

When asked about what players he would like to coach, the German replied: “Look I cannot answer those kinds of questions without creating headlines the next day.”

He continued: “I love watching them but I have no problem that I never trained one of them.”

Along with the players mentioned previously, Klopp noted Neymar and Robert Lewandowski. It is clear that these are two players that he sees as elite.

Potential Liverpool players?

While the likes of Messi, Ronaldo and Lewandowski are top players, they are much too old and much too expensive to be considered by Liverpool.

Liverpool’s transfer strategy means the Reds will only spend big on players who have many years left in the tank.

In relation to the coming years, Klopp said: “Mbappe has the biggest future. We can speak about Jadon Sancho as well, so they’re all coming up.

“When I am at a club then I work with the players I have, I don’t dream about other players. If we can get one of them in the future, we will see, but we will make the best of the situation we have.”

Just the mere mention of these players by the coach will get Reds fans dreaming.

These are two young forwards who look set to dominate for years to come. They are tipped by many as future Ballon D’Or winners.

With Liverpool’s current crop of front-men already in their primes, maybe it is time to begin future-proofing the side.

Mbappe would be an ideal replacement for Mo Salah whenever the Egyptian moves on.

As speedy, out-and-out goalscorers, the two have very similar playing styles. If Liverpool could muster up a world-record fee in the next few transfer windows, it would be a dream signing.

Sancho is a more creative player than Mbappe.

Jadon Sancho.

His game is more focused on assisting, rather than scoring. His 15 assists this season is the third most in Europe’s top five leagues.

He only turned 20 in March, so he has plenty of time to add more goals to his game.

In fact, Reds right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold has recently mentioned Sancho to Liverpool in an Instagram live stream.

It is highly unlikely that Liverpool will break the bank to sign either player this year.

However, if the club can stay winning silverware, then Anfield will once again become a cherished destinantion for these types of stars.
