Jurgen Klopp has had to deal with plenty of departures over the last few seasons in the Premier League and the list only gets bigger. While it was confirmed in advance that Roberto Firmino will be leaving the club, the club have made it official that James Milner, Alex Oxlade Chamberlin and Naby Keita will be on their way out of the club as well.
In a statement given by the club, they mentioned: “The quartet will each embark on new chapters in their careers following the conclusion of the 2022-23 season, having helped the Reds lift a host of the game’s biggest honours during their spells at Anfield. The four all played their part in Jürgen Klopp’s side winning the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup in 2019, before becoming the first Liverpool team to clinch the league title for 30 years as they racked up 99 points in 2019-20.”
During their stint with the Merseyside reds they also finished second in the Premier League on two occasions, losing out to Manchester City by narrow margins. They also made two Champions League final appearances and won the 2022 FA Community Shield. Not to forget, Firmino and Milner were key individuals as Liverpool reached the League Cup and Europa League finals during Klopp’s first season in charge.

With the visit of Aston Villa on Saturday being the Reds’ final home fixture of the campaign, the club has confirmed that special acknowledgements will be paid to the quartet at Anfield. Further tributes will follow across the club’s digital platforms after the end of the season as they wished Roberto, Naby, James, Alex and their families the very best for the future.
Liverpool have let go of multiple midfielders over the past few years and are currently on the verge of getting themselves ahead to purchase quite a few midfielders. There are many top talents being linked to Anfield right now and it’ll be interesting to see where the time takes them.
They are launching one final throw at the dice as far as their top four battle is concerned, but with Newcastle United and Manchester United staying firmly in their positions, it will not be easy for the club to sneak in. It might be the first time Klopp will miss out on Champions League spots since he came to the club. Get all the latest updates from the Premier League only on Nextbet Sports.
