Klopp On Sakho’s Future
JÜRGEN Klopp spoke today for the first time since Mamadou Sakho’s loan move to Crystal Palace was confirmed.
He said: “First of all, if I should give advice to Sakho it would be to him, not for TV.
“Who knows in half a year, we felt already what can change in a month, now there’s five months left.
“He should concentrate on Palace, we should concentrate on here.
“At the moment he’s on loan, still has a contract at Liverpool, but it’s not a thing we talk about in this moment.
Some people see that as a way back for Sakho. Think the facts speak for themselves in that case, though. He isn’t coming back.
Klopp Still Confident Of Success
THE German also refused to be negative about Liverpool’s chances of success, despite the amount of quality at the top end of the league this season.
“I am 100 per cent convinced that this club has outstanding power if we keep our nerve. The fight for something is always tight and intense.
“If something doesn’t work, why stop thinking positive? That makes no sense. I love being here. I know it’s a real challenge to be successful in this league. Everyone has an opinion but we have to stay concentrated and do the job.”
Is right, Jürgen. There have been doubts and criticisms of this team but they’re capable of beating the best on their day.
Klopp On The Anfield Atmosphere
MORE from the manager on Tuesday’s draw with Chelsea. This time he’s talking up the atmosphere that night.
He added: “Everyone involved in the last game felt the power of what positive energy can do. The atmosphere was outstanding. We can have that more often.”
Was in the Annie Road that night and thought the atmosphere was great. Much better than it has been in recent times.
NO new injury concerns ahead of Hull which is good news for the Reds.
“We had a few issues before the game.
“Clyney was really fine, Hendo was really fine, Lovren was really fine.
“Nothing else happened in the game, so they should all be in training today.”
Can think of somebody who won’t be happy, though…
