Jurgen Klopp Backs Liverpool Star for International Recall Amid His Unwavering Commitment This Season

Jurgen Klopp has backed one of his Liverpool superstars for international recall having seen his impressive performance this season.

Jurgen Klopp’s backing of Joe Gomez for a recall to the England squad shouldn’t surprise anyone familiar with the defender’s exceptional adaptability and unwavering commitment on the field this season.

Throughout his tenure at Liverpool, Gomez has battled injury setbacks, yet he has demonstrated remarkable mental resilience in overcoming these challenges, consistently contributing to the team’s efforts across all fronts.

Despite earning just 11 caps for the national team since his debut nearly seven years ago, Gomez’s recent performances undoubtedly warrant Gareth Southgate’s consideration as he prepares to finalise his squad for the upcoming international fixtures.

Gomez’s most recent appearance for England dates back to October 8, 2020, when he played 58 minutes in a 3-0 victory over Wales.

Return on the Cards?

At the age of 26, Gomez has become a cornerstone for Liverpool, demonstrating his versatility by smoothly transitioning between different defensive positions.

Whether playing as a left-back, right-back, center-back, or even as a defensive midfielder in recent games, Gomez consistently exhibits his calmness, tactical intelligence, and defensive skills.

Klopp’s admiration for Gomez’s diverse skill set was evident in his comments after Liverpool’s hard-fought 1-0 win against Nottingham Forest.

The Liverpool manager highlighted Gomez’s ability to effectively cover various positions, stressing his importance to the England national team. Here’s what Klopp said via the Daily Mail:

“I am not standing here telling Gareth who he should pick but you can get one player and have four positions covered. Wonderful.”

“If you play football at this level, there is [a big] difference between centre-half, full-back, right, left, to the No. 6 – and he is capable of that transition in his mind.”

Gomez’s versatility is akin to possessing a treasure trove of footballing prowess. Should there be a need to secure the left side of the pitch, Gomez is the go-to player. Seeking a steadfast presence in the central defense? Look no further than Gomez.
