Didi Hamann Challenges Jurgen Klopp To Do More Than "Talk The Talk"

Six of the best from this year's transfer window

Klopp also addressed comments from Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher that Van Dijk looked overweight, the German quipping: "I'm sure Jamie needs to lose a bit of weight, but for Virgil it's not the case".

Liverpool host Tottenham this weekend with a dual objective: to propel themselves further away from their opponents in the top-four chase and make amends for their humiliation in the reverse fixture.

"He's a big and tall player, it is not an issue".

Liverpool, in third, now hold a two-point lead over fifth-placed Spurs and are looking to avenge their 4-1 defeat at Wembley back in October. We have the best nutrition department and no-one came to me and said we need to work with him. Telling everyone we progress is one thing, but you need something to show for it.

Van Dijk had only made 11 starts for Southampton before his switch to Liverpool and Klopp will hope he can return to full fitness soon. He can bring in a lot of things already.

"It's quite hard. Our defending is different to Southampton, for example, and Holland, if you want, so that's why it makes more sense that you get used to it".




"I know how they react in different situations physical-wise, that's why they played and Virgil didn't play", the 50-year-old expanded, disclosing that he spoke personally with Van Dijk and that he "expected it".

Coutinho departed in a reported €160million deal to Barcelona at the beginning of January, having seen an anticipated move in the previous transfer window fall apart.

And it is the back-line of the Merseyside outfit which is leading to doubts over Klopp's chances of finishing in the top four this season.

"We did what we thought was right, not everything was in our hands".

"I'm very happy with Virgil", he added. But that's three or four years ago, he's a different player now'. "He is a great player but he does not play in a position for which we urgently need new players".
