Carragher: "Klopp will make big changes at Liverpool - but not until the summer"

Jamie Carragher believes Jürgen Klopp will make widespread changes to the Liverpool squad at his disposal - though not until next summer.

The Reds boss took charge little over a month ago, though injuries have crippled the Reds' squad depth, sidelining important figures such as Daniel Sturridge, captain Jordan Henderson and centre-back Mamadou Sakho.

Those injuries have took their toll on Klopp's start at the club. Despite losing just the once in his first seven games in all competitions, the Merseyside outfit are still seven points adrift off of Manchester United

But despite lagging behind the top-four, Klopp isn't likely to do much transfer activity in January, according to Carragher.

Instead, the ex-defender believes the club will wait until the summer before the German overhauls his squad - with Liverpool currently sat 10th in the Premier League table.

Liverpool legend says it is "difficult" to modify squad in January

On the 48-year-old boss, Carragher told the Evening Standard that "eventually" he will make "big changes" but said that is unlikely to be in January because it is "always difficult" to change the squad extensively half-way through the campaign.

The Sky Sports pundit added that "now and again" clubs make signings in January that make a "big difference" - highlighting former striker Luis Suarez's "huge" impact after arriving from Ajax, as well as centre-back Daniel Agger - who "did really well" after making the switch from Brondby - but said that generally it's not a time when "the best players" are "on offer."

Carragher explained that the changes Klopp will "look to make" and "want to implement" are more likely to come in the summer - despite the fact that the Reds spent nearly £80 million in the summer of 2015 after splashing in excess of £120 million the summer before.

Carragher, who retired at the end of the 2012-13 season, added that Liverpool's team "isn't quite good enough" to be where "everyone wants Liverpool to be" - stating that is the "whole point" why clubs bring a new manager in.
