Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp says that he will be there should incoming boss Arne Slot need any advice. But the German is adamant that the squad is well set up for success in the future.

"Liverpool 2.0 does not end with me," Klopp said ahead of his side taking on Spurs tomorrow. "It’s just the new Liverpool. It’s just the start, they (the new coaching team) can make the next steps."

Last summer, Liverpool signed Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai and Ryan Gravenberch, and the Reds also have young talents like Harvey Elliott and Conor Bradley emerging. The age of the team suggests it is ready to kick on again.

"I am not in a position to give advice," Klopp said. "When new people come in, if they want to know something they can call me the whole world has my number. We can speak about absolutely everything, I love talking about everything in this club.

"Fantastic squad. It was like, we could do this, we could do that, we need that. Thank God it’s not my job anymore. That’s exactly the thing I don’t want to do anymore. The people who (come into) this club will be calm enough.

"They will all look at the information about the squad we have during the season. Age group is great, what’s coming up from the academy, positions, can you improve from outside? I don’t know if the money is there or not. You always can (improve) but the basis is absolutely great.

"Look at the age of the midfield, really top. Stefan Bajčetić is back, really cool. Some will be here, some on loan, some sold. That’s all part of the thing. The basis we created is really good. We tried to win the league but it didn’t work out, but you have to see it in the long term as well."

Klopp has urged patience as well. "We had the time when we started," he added. "Do they have to wait four or five years? But if you give them time again, there’s a chance. We will see that. Who wins that battle, the patient ones or the other ones who waited long enough. There’s a really bright future I’m sure." says: Klopp is absolutely right about the squad that Slot will inherit. He is absolutely right about needing patience, as well, though. Things may not go 100 per cent smoothly straight away, but the transition from one coach to another should be relatively seamless based purely on the similar styles of play.
