From January 9 to February 6, will be held the Africa Cup of Nations 2022 in Cameroon. During the competition, Liverpool will be one of the most impacted clubs in England, with Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané and Naby Keita leaving the Reds for 1 month (maybe more with the pre-competition training). However, Jurgen Klopp has decided that he will not recruit players to replace them, according to the Daily Mail.
Fighting for the title in the Premier League, Liverpool will be without some of its best elements during the African Cup of Nations. This could give Chelsea and Manchester City, the other two contenders for the Premier League title, who will each lose only one player (Mahrez for City and Mendy for Chelsea).
While the transfer market will be open from January 1, Jurgen Klopp would have decided not to recruit the replacements of players who will go to the CAN. This is what the English newspaper, The Daily Mail, reports this Thursday.
The German coach of the Liverpool Reds intends to rely on his own elements to « hold the barracks », waiting for the return of his offensive stars that are Salah and Mané. There is Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino who returns from injury and Divock Origi, who is always present when Klopp calls on him.
And recruiting players, just for 1 month, could be problematic for them after the return of Salah and Mané
