Liverpool hero Luis Garcia: Klopp rotations key to season success

Liverpool hero Luis Garcia believes rotation will be key for success this season.

Garcia, part of the Liverpool side that memorably won the 2005 Champions League, believes making shrewd alterations in a bid to keep the squad fresh for the challenges ahead will be instrumental in the coming months.

He told the PA news agency: “Last year we managed to do a great competition, arriving third in the Premier League is not easy at all when you have so many injuries during the whole season.

“We have kept the important players that we have and with the recoveries of players that were injured, I think we've got more than enough to challenge. I think we've got enough talent in the squad to face Saturdays and Wednesdays.

“The rotation has to be done well, has to be very clinical and I think that's what Jurgen and his team are working on. (On Wednesday) we saw a few different players to the ones we saw at the weekend, that's the way it has to be.

“On these days the players need to understand…I think you can see every, single one who gets involved in the second half, even though he doesn't start he gives 120 per cent. That's how you get a winning team."
