“I have given it a thought and I will keep thinking about it. The situation is that of course of course I will like to be playing – I have been here for 10 years and love the club and everybody knows how happy I am here. I’ve got a good relationship with the fans and also with the club.
I love playing here and I love this club, and it’s overall very, very difficult situation and everybody knows this. I will be playing a bit of football at the end of my career and that is why I’ve got to give things good thought, I will speak to the bosses and see what the best solution is”.
This quote is coming form 7 time capped German striker, Stefan Kiessling in an interview with Sky Sports. With this, the player who is a well known target of Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp, is ready to call time on his association with 2002 champions league finalists, Bayer Leverkusen. The striker has found playing time hard to come buy due to the scintillating form of Manchester United reject, Javier Hernandez.
Klopp’s two first choice strikers, Daniel Sturridge and Christian Benteke, have been bugged down by niggling injuries at various points this season which has prevented either player from having an extended run in the team. The Liverpool coach has had to rely on Divock Origi or move Brazilian midfielder, Roberto Firmino further forward. Completing a deal for Stefan Kiessling will ensure that Klopp has a proven striker to call upon when needed. The striker has scored 125 goals in 302 appearances for the German club.
