February 2nd Liverpool star Robbie Fowler said in an interview with the “Liverpool Echo”
, When encountering physical exhaustion, the inner burnout of the players may be the main reason for the sluggish performance this season.
Fowler also said that Liverpool must sign in to maintain the competitiveness of the team.
Fowler said: “They’ve struggled this season and all the talk that’s been coming out on the training ground is that they paid the price for what they did last season. I can’t sit here against that. But I think when you’re a successful team
When you are in the team, you have to keep fighting no matter what.”
“Klopp is a great manager, but there are tough moments. Liverpool will do something. I’m not an insider with a tip, but if nothing happens this summer, I will.
“I also think that when Klopp signs a new contract with the club, it will be one of the prerequisites of his contract that he can bring in players after the season. Just think of what they could have achieved! I know all about it
It’s all ifs and buts, shoulds and mights. They’re going through tough times right now, with expectations levels soaring, but I’m sure Klopp will turn things around.”
“As a player, I wanted to play more games and I saw the fact that if you succeed, you play more games, so I think that’s a good thing. You have to accept and adapt to that;
If you want to be a successful team, you play more games than the average team. I’m all for them playing as many games as possible.”
“I don’t think people realize the mental aspect of the game. People are saying to me now that they can’t play two or three games a week, and at the end of my career, I really can’t. Because I have so much.
Injuries, a lot of surgeries, my body just can’t adapt. Physically, I’m probably not the fittest lad.”
“What people don’t understand is the mental aspect. Players can play three times a week and it’s definitely not a problem because as athletes they’ve adapted very well. But the mental aspect of the game is also huge and the players can suffer.
“The age of social media has come and their PR team can answer everything they can, whereas a few years ago there was no social media and the expectations they have now. So I think that’s probably where they’re struggling.
It’s not a physical issue, they could just be mental fatigue.”
When talking about Liverpool’s reinforcements, Fowler added: “Klopp has every right to think that they can improve and grow. When you build a strong team, or when you are at the top of the league, you have to do it.
Keep strengthening your team. Not even just strengthening a certain position, but strengthening every position.”
“If you rest on your laurels, if you want, then someone can come in and take your place in the team and do that job and make it difficult for you to come back into the team. I think that’s how all aspiring clubs should be.
Do it, keep signing elite players.”
“No disrespect, at the time if you didn’t make signings when the team was in a good position, I think you were going backwards. The other teams around you were signing players, they were trying to improve the level of the team. So I think
It is necessary and very important for Liverpool to bring in players.”
When talking about the possibility of Liverpool being sold, Fowler said: “From a fan’s point of view, you can have your own views and theories about what might happen, but I don’t think the players will be worried.
Can’t speak for all of them right now, but your job as a player is to do what you need to do.”
“Everything else doesn’t matter, your focus is on getting the best for the club. So when we start looking for excuses instead of reasons, I think we’re going to be behind. It doesn’t matter who comes, whether the club is going to be sold or not,
Whether it’s 20% or 40% or 60%, it’s not about the players!”
“They need to show the kind of form we’ve seen and we know they can. We’ve shown time and time again that we have some really good players in this team. They’re having a bit of a tough time right now, but this team
Liverpool always give you hope.”
