Aldridge fears Liverpool going same way as Man Utd unless...
John Aldridge is pleading with Liverpool to begin freshening up the squad as manager Jurgen Klopp's contract runs down.
Aldridge wrote for the Sunday World: "The warning signs are flashing brightly for Liverpool right now and if they want to see what could happen two years down the road, look at how the Alex Ferguson era ended at Manchester United.
"It was back in 2013 that Ferguson signed off at Old Trafford with a final Premier League title win, yet what followed was a decline that is still ongoing to this day.
"An elite manager is capable of producing success others can only dream about and that has been highlighted by the succession of failures who have followed Ferguson in and out of the Old Trafford hot-seat.
"How is United's story comparable to that of Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp?
"Well, the German has produced miracles Ferguson would have been proud of during his time in charge of Liverpool, but his reign will not last forever.
"Klopp has confirmed he will walk away from the club when his current contract expires in the summer of 2024, with that doomsday now looming large.
"It might seem a long way off, but that is only two full seasons away and if you look at the current Liverpool squad and the average age of players in key positions, there's no doubt it needs a shake-up."
