Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed his reasons behind not handing this ace more starts for the Reds following an encouraging start to the season.
According to Mirror Football, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has admitted that star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain still needs to find his rhythm before he’s given the chance to start more games.
Oxlade-Chamberlain has turned in some wonderful performances after his recovery from a heartbreaking injury, the England international has made two starts in the league so far this season.
The 26-year-old has made his case to feature from the get-go with some solid performances in the Champions League and in the cup. The Ox has three goals from three appearances in cup competitions.
Oxlade-Chamberlain is the perfect example to point to when considering the massive turnaround at Anfield since Klopp arrived.
The German has converted the one-time winger into a dynamic box-to-box central midfielder.
Here’s why Klopp hasn’t been handing many starts to the ace:
“He has scored, nice, both at Genk, a real stunner on Wednesday, a lot of outstanding moments, but other moments he is not involved.”
“We always have to try to reach perfection. He still needs rhythm but that is no problem. He is a long-term project.”
