JURGEN KLOPP says his Liverpool squad are the most talented group he’s ever worked with.
The German manager has such a wealth of options to pick from that he admits he finds it hard deciding which players to leave out.
Liverpool ran riot on their last outing, putting five goals past Porto to virtually seal their place in the Champions League quarter-finals.
Despite selling Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona in January, Klopp believes his Reds squad are better than any other he’s managed.
“It’s really hard at the moment to make the squad,” Klopp told LFCTV.
“Wow, I’ve never had a situation like that with the quality of the players not being in the squad. They all have made really big steps. Dom Solanke was not in the squad but is in outstanding shape at the moment.
“Ragnar Klavan, unbelievable. Ben Woodburn makes steps and is really close to everything. It’s difficult, it’s getting more and more difficult, but that’s good for us of course.”
Danny Ings made his sixth appearance of the season after returning from two serious knee injuries in the previous two campaigns. And Klopp had encouraging words for the forward ahead of the remainder of their European campaign.
“Danny is in fantastic shape,” the manager added. “It always takes time.
“Now, after two-and-a-half years, he can play in the Champions League. It’s a wonderful story, it’s really deserved.”
