He said:Liverpool will always be linked to players, it’s just the nature of the football club being one of the biggest in the world.The current group of players are really special and talented and any player who the manager feels as though he wants to bring in, has to have the talent but they also have to have that mentality and personality to come into the group.There's been signings in the past that Klopp has made, and people doubted but they have taken Liverpool to the next level.So we may not see a big name arrive at Liverpool but I do think Liverpool will go to the market when they need and they will look to get the right personality and player to add strength to the squad.Mellor was also asked how he thought would ultimately be able to replace Jurgen Klopp as manager once the German's time at Liverpool comes to an end, a prospect no-one bar the Reds' rivals will be looking forward to.The beauty of Liverpool is that no one is even considering anyone else other than Jurgen Klopp as manager.He’s working to take Liverpool to that next level where they want to be Liverpool and the club are as happy as they have been for 30 years, with this manager in place taking the football club exactly where the fans want him to be.There is no talk whatsoever that they want to see anybody else coming in and taking over the football club.Klopp seems to be Liverpool down to the ground, with his mentality and his approach.It's times like this, that the supporters can really enjoy having somebody like your club in charge who connects to the people of the city. 19:53Dan KayGary Neville breaks silence on Liverpool Premier League title winHE'S ALIVE!!He's back from Papa New Guinea, @Carra23Nice to see you so gracious, @GNev2https://t.co/U1naBxzB7c— Liverpool FC News (@LivEchoLFC) June 30, 2020 19:28Dan KayAnother Brewster belter!On-loan Liverpool striker has been in fine form for Swansea City both before and after the lockdown and 'scored' a great equaliser for the Welsh side in their 1-1 draw at Millwall this afternoon, it won't actually count as Rhian's goal as it hit the bar and went in off the goalkeeper but the young Red's excellent showings continue!"One of English football's rising stars is shining brightly!"

He always texts me to see how I'm doing. Same with me, I always check in to see how he and his family are doing.
. He's a fantastic person, he's always around the place.I've spoken to him about Scotland as well as Liverpool. His experience in the game as a player, a manager, a legend is second to none, and it's very hard to find that. He's been a massive help to me. I always rely on his advice and it's great to have someone like that to call upon. I've got a few people like that but there's no bigger name in football than Kenny Dalglish.Since the day I signed he's been different class with me and of course Scots look out for Scots but he doesn't have to do that. The fact he's took the time out to do it is special to me and something I'll never forget.16:08Matt AddisonKlopp proven rightLFC correspondent Paul Gorst on why the Reds boss has been proven right this week, as Liverpool became Premier League champions.15:55Matt AddisonSalah's aimBut will he get it?15:18Matt AddisonVan Dijk admirationWe've all been there: that thought of 'wow, how good is Virgil van Dijk?'.Well, it seems Premier League defenders - and very, very good ones at that - are thinking the same thing.James Maddison, Ben Chilwell and Caglar Soyuncu of Leicester City walk out at Anfield ahead of the Premier League match with Liverpool on January 30, 2019 (Image: Plumb Images/Leicester City FC via Getty Images)Leicester City's Caglar Soyuncu, the highly-rated 24-year-old centre-back, told Sky Sports: "I always watch and learn from other players."There are so many great defenders in this league. I wouldn't limit myself to only watching one or two teams and their players, there are so many quality players in the Premier League and I try to watch and learn from many others."There are so many good centre-backs playing in this league but I have to say Van Dijk is top of that list and where they [are] in the league and how he's done shows that."15:07Matt AddisonEddie Howe 'seriously considered'Liverpool's three-man shortlist to replace Brendan Rodgers reportedly contained Jurgen Klopp, Carlo Ancelotti and Eddie Howe.According to the Athletic, Liverpool "gave serious consideration to hiring Howe" before opting for the German.BOURNEMOUTH, ENGLAND - JUNE 20: Eddie Howe of Bournemouth during the Premier League match between AFC Bournemouth and Crystal Palace at Vitality Stadium on June 20, 2020 in Bournemouth, England.
