Jurgen Klopp insists the challenge of rebuilding Liverpool s squad was his motivation for signing a contract extension at the club last year as he criticised the spending at Chelsea.

Last April, Klopp penned a two-year extension to his previous Reds deal which would see him and his backroom staff stay on at Anfield until at least the summer of 2026. Klopp recently admitted things need to change at the Reds and has spoken of the need to revamp the squad.

The Reds are ninth in the Premier League and a whopping 10 points off a top-four place (albeit with a game in hand), with qualification for next seasons Champions League increasingly improbable. Their EFL Cup defence ended last month and face a testing trip to Brighton in the FA Cup, just weeks after their humbling three-goal defeat on the South Coast.

Klopp is eyeing a summer rebuild at Anfield after insisting he is not "too loyal" to his players and claims that his awareness that big changes were required in the first-team squad motivated him to extend his stay to build a new Liverpool team.
