Liverpool's history of poor quality reinforcements in the midfield meant that, during the summer of last year, many fans strongly questioned the team's signings, not least the unexpected arrival of Japanese Wataru Endo, a player who, despite not having started as a starter, was gaining acceptance from the public with a few opportunities, Endo, who despite not having started as a starter, was gaining with some opportunities the acceptance of the public that today sees him as a natural and absolute leader of the zone, being even by many as the player who will be in charge of humiliating Enzo Fernandez and Moises Caicedo, men who at the time came to reject this club.

Winning the title for Endo accompanied by a good performance that neutralizes Chelsea's attempts will be a good way to prove that the fans were wrong and that the team does not always make poor quality signings as in the past, Klopp performance this fact to the extent of being the Japanese and his teammates like Alexis Mac Allister, Ryan Gravenberch and Dominik Szoboszlai, an important pillar for today to fight for this type of championships.

Wataru Endo, through simple effort and taking advantage of the opportunities he has had with the injuries of his teammates, has been one of the men who has given Liverpool the most surprises this year, trusting Klopp in his defensive potential that his work at Wembley will be to not allow any kind of approach from the rival and to create progressive plays with safe passes and without risking the ball.

If the statistics with an average of 90 points out of 100 are not enough to show how good Endo has been in this stage with the Reds, this player is not far behind in the list of midfielders who have scored at least once for the team so far this season, with the Japanese player having a couple of goals that validate his good nose for goal when the team does not have a man with better finishing opportunities.

Knowing that Klopp is living his last days in charge of the institution, Endo understood that this is the perfect opportunity for him and his teammates to do everything possible to try to win as many titles as possible, allowing Wataru to extend his short list of titles with championships with a unique meaning, since he would do it with the best club in England and in a year where he went from being an unknown and a feared proposal, to an element of international stature and of great value in the club.
