Jurgen Klopp insists that “everybody has a place” at Liverpool going forward.
Liverpool won their second game of pre-season with a 3-2 victory over Tranmere on Tuesday.
Klopp fielded two entirely different teams in each half, with Naby Keita and Fabinho starting together for the first time.
Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi, who both spent at least part of last season away from Anfield on loan, were introduced after the break.
Neither managed to get a goal, with Rafa Camacho, Sheyi Ojo and Adam Lallana on the scoresheet, but the pair continue to boost their chances of a future under Klopp.
“They have all the quality, you can see that, you saw it four or five days ago that they are all really good football players, but it’s not to show and we have our ideas,” he told the club’s official website.
“The boys, we need them. We play the games, we have the training sessions, they are nice fellas so it’s nice to have them around and then let’s see how it fits at the end.
“But it’s all about the boys, my door is that wide open so why should I make a decision today? I watch the games, I lead the sessions and then I make a decision at a specific point, but that’s not today and it’s not next week so we have still time.
“Everybody has a place [here]. I would be really crazy if I would not give these boys a chance – they are fantastic players, they’ve played fantastic games, so we will see what happens.”
