Good morning. Can I ask, are the Eds aware of Manés intentions? He like Salah are linked with moves and if a winger coming on question is asked it's often if Salah or Mané leave. As we know what Salah would like to do and is apparently active in trying to achieve it. Is Mané the same? Is he happy to (basically) finish career here instead?

Kristen

{Ed001's Note - he has not made any waves about wanting to move. He won the Champions League, that was his dream in club football, he has one of his best friends in Keita playing alongside him, I am not so sure he would be actively seeking a move away. Equally though, I don't think he would be rejecting it out of hand. It would depend on if he felt it was right.}

I don't see any big player moving this season or next. Just from a point of view of if you are going to leave it would only make sense to go to one of City Madrid Barcelona PSG Bayern or Juve, any where else would be a step down for a big player. At this moment all bar City are in the middle of big rebuilds. Bar money I don't see any reason to leave therefore, obviously money is a big factor but from a footballing perspective we are arguably with city the most attractive prospects in world football at the moment surely?

Making predictions is a foolish idea but I just think Mane is not a galactico. He's extremely shy, and I think his position in our team is perfect for him where he's properly recognised as a match winner and a terrific player, but he goes about his business with minimal media attention and spotlight. I fully expect that he's very content with the life at LFC.


3.) 15 Jul 2019 15:06:04
Thanks ED. He sounds like just a ‘normal’ situation then. I like Mane a lot as a player I’m glad to hear he’s settled and happy.
For me it’s difficult to see if any of our front three are more important than the others. Great situation to be in. I do believe we need cover that’s probably above the academy level but very happy to be proved wrong.

None of our stars are leaving this summer. Not after a champions league winning season and not with Madrid pursuing other targets. Of our stars only salah might eventually leave (and even then, it would likely only be if Madrid don’t get Mbappe next summer or raise significant funds) . Any rumours you hear stating otherwise is nonsense.


5.) 15 Jul 2019 15:55:41
I don’t totally disagree but I just personally don’t get the ‘not Leaving UCL winners’. Why? It’s really rare to retain that tournament. If we get there again this coming season that’s three finals in a row. Just realistically doubtful. So if players want to taste that again you’d look at Madrid or Barcelona maybe Juve and Man City. As much as I can’t see us losing especially over two legs I also can’t see us retaining. Odds too high. But staying for the Prem title I can see that after last season, depending on how the rivals continue to improve.

"Not leaving the UCL winners" is the most ridiculous statement I've seen here. Ronaldo won it with Real in 2016/ 17/ 18 didn't he? Will someone remind me where he played his football this season just gone by.


7.) 16 Jul 2019 20:48:39
Irishman, false argument. Ronaldo played at RM for 9-10 full seasons and did not leave them until after winning his FOURTH CL trophy with them so your argument is a dishonest. Maybe Mane wants to win a PL and another CL with us before he leaves or do you not think the argument can go the other way? The fact of the matter is as Ed01 said, Mane won the CL, a dream he had as a kid growing up so yes IMO, he is not agitating for a move at least for this season. Next season may be different. Same foe Salah.


8.) 17 Jul 2019 11:57:36
If he's achieved his dream maybe now he thinks its exactly the right time to move on. Leave a winner. Take off the Liverpool tinted glasses and realise that this is a job to players. If Mane, Salah, Bobby, Virgil or Allison think a move is right for them then they'll push for it. Don't be kidding yourself that it's any different with our players.

Good evening EDs and all. General question that popped into my head following Ketas injury while on international duty.

Has a club ever requested or had a clause when signing a player they cannot play international football?

Is that even possible?

If it has never been done could you see it happening? Especially with the transfer fees paid. 200m for a top top player as a buyer you'd not want them out of action especially not in your control. I recall a manager or maybe a post here? Where it was stated a player was injured playing for England (again) and that the training methods and coaching was far lesser then the players club and it was that situation that caused or led to the injury or mismanagement of it. (Might have been Sturridge under Hodgeson)

Or is this a laughable idea? Do clubs get just as much out of a player at that level being an icon for their country (shirt sales, media and marketing exposure) .

Kristen

{Ed002's Note - No, clauses such as that are not allowed. Occasionally clubs have protected players (Giggs is an example) and minimised the number of international games.}


1.) 28 Jun 2019 22:57:44
Thanks for your time. I was thinking and should really have mentioned in the op, I was thinking more Ronaldo type transfers then Mbappe.
Mbappe is young and would be unfair and unrealistic to expect to not play for France. But Juve pay 100m plus super wages and at 34 if he got taken out playing for Portugal, leaving a season out or an injury which would effectively limit his playing level, thats where Id think clauses would come into play.
But yes thats all irrelevant following your answer. Tgabjs again.

{Ed002's Note - That is where insurance comes in to play.}


2.) 29 Jun 2019 06:38:55
Hi Ed,
Could you shed any light on how some clubs protect players?
Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - As an example, Manchester United agreed with the WAles national set up that Giggs would not be used in all games and he would be "rested" for most friendlies.}


3.) 29 Jun 2019 16:33:04
Im sure i remember a few years back that we received some compensation from the FA because Gerrard picked up an injury in a friendly at around the 75th minute mark but it was agreed that he would be subbed at the 60 minute mark (which never happened)

{Ed002's Note - Mainstream international sides have insurance for injuries - but nobody claims on minor injuries - like nobody claims for a minor issue in the home. If it is more significant a claim is made via the international insurance that is maintained by international side - and you are right, against (I think) France picked up an issuette and compensation was paid whilst SG was playing for England.

However, there has always been a beef with African countries who have insufficient or no insurance meaning any significant issues mean the clubs have to suck it up or use their own insurance.}

Have you any insight into how Wilson’s attitude is with improving to be a LFC player? Is he keen to work within Klopps way and work harder off the ball or is he another quality kid turned brat that thinks he’s made it already so doesn’t have to?

I was hoping he’d get a chance and grab it. Getting a bit tired of hearing about these great players in our youth teams that seem to be the answer then actually aren’t even close. Ibe, Kent, Ojo now possibly Wilson.

I completely understand why there’s such a split with fans either wanting to splash cash or give youth their chance.

Kristen

{Ed001's Note - he had a few issues when he was younger after getting loads of hype. While he knuckled down a bit to a degree, it is unlikely he will ever be suited to Klopp's way of playing.}

Whos to say a nice easy transfer doesnt build a good relationship for when we want a player of theirs?
