Jurgen Klopp admits his Liverpool dream team is one made up of all players that Liverpool born and bred.

A Scouser by definition is a person from Liverpool, someone who is the City of Liverpool through and through.

Jurgen Klopp for his array of talented superstars from around the globe has done well to entwine homegrown talent too into his team.

For your Alisson Becker, Roberto Firmino, and Mohamed Salah, you also have your Trent Alexander-Arnold, Curtis Jones, and Adam Lewis.

The German tactician is adamant there are more and more coming through the ranks. He fully believes that building a team whose heart and soul is Liverpudlian is more than just a dreams long as those players are prepared to wait their turn.

Speaking to the club’s official website he said:

 “The biggest plus for young players is time. But the moment they lose patience is the moment things go not how they should.”

“We try to help them as much as they can to become the best players they can be. I really like that these boys have committed their future. Our Academy is producing some great players in the past few years.”

“We want to be the club where everyone with a Scouse soul wants to play. If you are talented and ready to work hard we want you here. To be able to do that we have to show there is a pathway through to the first team.

“The dream in the long term is that we have a team full of Scousers. Why not? They would fight like crazy.”

With Jurgen Klopp promising a quiet summer in the transfer market, could he already be building his “scouse army” from now?
