‘We have a young squad with young players with a lot of skills, a lot of ability. I think just the fact that we can improve this skill and this ability can give us more opportunity to stay at the top.’
Klopp was appointed Liverpool manager back in 2015 and Ancelotti believes he can take aspects of what he’s done in that period at Anfield to develop his Everton side.
‘I think that Liverpool did a fantastic job in the last five years,’ he added. ‘When Jurgen came, and year-by-year they improved their squad.
‘I think this is the way that we have to follow – to improve the squad year-by-year.’
