Sepp van den Berg Open to Leaving Liverpool for More Playing Time

Liverpool defender Sepp van den Berg has expressed his willingness to leave the club in the summer if he continues to lack playing time.

Despite joining the Reds in 2019, the 22-year-old has only made four appearances for the first team. Most of his playing minutes have come during loan spells at Preston, Schalke, and his current club, Mainz.

Van den Berg, who has played over 100 senior games in his career, has been making progress in the Bundesliga. He has been a regular starter for Mainz, missing only one game and consistently playing the full 90 minutes.

He recently scored the winning goal against Augsburg and also found the back of the net in a draw with Borussia Dortmund.

With uncertainty surrounding Joel Matip’s future and Van den Berg’s impressive performances in Germany, there is a possibility that he could earn a place in the Liverpool squad after his loan spell.

However, the Dutch defender has acknowledged that if he doesn’t see enough playing time upon his return to Liverpool, he may have to consider leaving the club.

Playing time is crucial for Van den Berg, and he wants to be in a starting lineup. While he understands the challenge of breaking into a defense that includes Virgil van Dijk and Ibrahima Konate, he would be content with coming off the bench to demonstrate his value to the team.

In terms of his future, Van den Berg prefers playing abroad and believes that the level of competition is higher in other leagues, particularly in Germany.

He mentions clubs like Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Bayer Leverkusen, and RB Leipzig as desirable opponents. A return to the Eredivisie in the Netherlands seems unlikely for him.

Ultimately, Van den Berg’s priority is to find a club where he can play regularly and continue his development as a player. Whether that is at Liverpool or elsewhere, he remains open to the possibilities that lie ahead.
