here are the Liverpool morning headlines Monday, June 29.
Klopp writes an open letter
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp wrote to Merseyside Reds supporters after their first Premier League title was confirmed last week.
The title victory made it the first Premier League title and the first Liverpool league title since Kenny Dalglish won it 30 years ago. In an open letter to ECHO, Klopp described how privileged he feels to work in an “incredible club in an incredible city”.
Klopp wrote: “Firstly, if you are reading this newspaper, it is because you care about the city of Liverpool and want to know more. In this sense, we already have something in common.
“I have never written a letter to a newspaper before. I do a lot of press conferences and I know that I am mentioned in the media more than normal, but this is the first time that I feel the need to write a letter and the reason is that I want to speak directly to the people of Liverpool.
“This is an incredible time for the incredible supporters of an incredible club in an incredible city. For some of you, it’s the end of a long wait for Liverpool to become champion, but whether you’ve been waiting for 30 years or 30 minutes, I hope you enjoy this moment as much as you deserve. “
Klopp said what to do after leaving Liverpool
Former Borussia Dortmund defender Neven Subotic says Klopp should become manager of German national team once his reign of Anfield ended.
Subotic stressed that Klopp will have nothing more to do in the national game once his contract is completed in 2024 and that management at international level could provide him with a different type of challenge to overcome.
The central defender was a crucial part of the winning teams from Klopp to Mainz and Borussia Dortmund and would be anxious to see his former manager take on a new project after the end of his stay at Merseyside.
“Jurgen Klopp should become a national coach at some point, absolutely – then win the World Cup with Germany,” Subotic told CHECK24, via Daily Express.
“When it comes to success, there is definitely nothing left, not even for Kloppo.
“Thanks to Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool have also invited new people to be passionate about football. And it’s also a feat.
“There is a lot of hope in this idea, that Jurgen Klopp lives with his team and which goes beyond European sports culture.”
Southampton posts transfer message to Liverpool
Southampton Twitter account humorously warned Liverpool to keep hands on Danny Ings after the former Liverpool man continued his scintillating inner form with two goals against Watford on Sunday.
Ings moved to the south coast last summer for £ 20 million following a successful loan episode with the Saints and has since enjoyed a rich streak. He scored his 20th and 21st goals of the season in all competitions on Sunday, making him one of the best scorers in national football.
However, after his team’s victory over Watford, the club’s Twitter account responded to a Liverpool fan asking if the Reds could sign the striker again, saying “You are tired of us …”
The likes of Virgil van Dijk, Sadio Mane and Adam Lallana have moved from Southampton to Liverpool in recent years and it looks like the club, or on its Twitter account, will not be willing to see Ings return to Anfield.
