Will the duo from the Japanese national team play at Anfield side by side? The news that Liverpool, which will enter a new era at the end of this season, is interested in recruiting Takefusa Kubo is drawing attention.
Sports media Sports Bible reported on the 28th (Korea time), “Liverpool may use a secret weapon to recruit Real Sociedad star Gubo,” adding, “They are showing belated interest in recruiting Gubo.”
“Gubo scored 15 goals in 69 official matches for Real Madrid. Spanish media Mundo Deportivo even compared him to Lionel Messi,” the media quoted Lelebo as saying.
Recently, Spanish media Lelevo claimed, “Liverpool is interested in recruiting Gubo, who can be a long-term replacement for Mohamed Salah.”
In addition, Sports Bible claimed, “Liverpool has a secret weapon called Endo Wataru, who joined last summer. Endo may be trying to persuade Kubo to join.”
Kubo and Endo are currently on the Japanese national team and are playing at the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup in Qatar. Kubo has played in all three group games, but he is said to be somewhat sluggish after helping in the first game. His long-term dribbling has ups and downs and is being pointed out for his poor pass success rate. Endo scored one goal and one assist in three group games, and in the last game against Indonesia, he recorded 10 turnovers and received a poor rating.
Meanwhile, Liverpool is expected to undergo a major reform at the end of this season. For now, Jürgen Klopp, who has led the team for eight years, will take down the baton. Klopp seemed to continue his company by renewing his contract with the club in 2022, but decided to resign, signaling an end.
On the 26th, Klopp explained on Liverpool’s official website, “I love everything about this club. But I made this decision because I’m sure it’s right,” adding, “The energy is at its bottom.”
In the Klopp era alone, Liverpool won trophies including the English Premier League (EPL), the UEFA Champions League (UCL), the FIFA Club World Cup, the English Football Association (FA) Cup, the Carabao Cup (League Cup), the UEFA Super Cup, and the FA Community Shield. In particular, it topped the EPL for the first time in 30 years in the 2019-20 season, and opened the peak period for Liverpool in the late 2010s. 라바카지노도메인
However, Klopp resigned at the end of this season, putting a new era ahead. Key players such as Salah, who led the team’s heyday, are also expected to change their squads as their contracts are nearing expiration. Attention is focusing on whether Kubo will be able to form a Japanese duo with Endo.
