Jurgen Klopp has fired an ominous warning to Liverpool’s Premier League title rivals by saying his side are ready to evolve to face any new challenges this season.
Liverpool may have lifted their first title in 30 years last term, breaking a host of records along the way, but the German boss is ready for the threat from a number of sides looking to wrestle the trophy away from Merseyside.
“It’s completely normal that we have to make another step because other teams will make other steps as well,” Klopp exclusively told Sky Sports News.
“It has nothing to do with being champions, we constantly try not to develop but to find solutions to the new challenges before we have the problems with them. That’s how football works.
“But a lot of the good things we did, first and foremost we have to show again so it’s not only about changing things it’s about finding the right approach and plan again for this season.”
While Liverpool look set to add just their second summer signing to their squad with the arrival of Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich, other clubs have spent heavily in an attempt to close the gap this term.

Sunday’s opponents Chelsea have spent more than £200m on new recruits in a summer of Stamford Bridge rebuilding and although Klopp insists Liverpool were different from “clubs owned by countries and oligarchs”, he has no problem with how Chelsea boss Frank Lampard, or any club, do their business.
