Wataru Endo: Liverpool strengthen midfield by signing Bundesliga ‘machine’

Liverpool, who had a host of midfield injuries last season, were conscious that Endo has an excellent fitness record and scored highly in Bundesliga statistics for winning duels and possession, making tackles and winning headers.

Klopp said: “I’m really happy. Wataru is a really good player. I know in this world of football how it goes and stuff like this, but have a look because he’s a really good player.

“[He is an] experienced player, captain of Stuttgart, captain of Japan, speaks good English, nice fella, family man, machine on the pitch, good footballer on top of that, sensational attitude.

“So, I’m really happy. He’s a good footballer, very experienced and loves to work extremely hard.”

Endo becomes Liverpool’s third summer signing after Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai.
