Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp likens the treatment of his player by the Football Association to that of a horse at a news conference on Wednesday (21st October), ahead of the UEFA Europa League Group B match against Rubin Kazan.
“First of all, we meet here at this wonderful place so often in the week because we want to have success. And this Europa League Group is quite open. There are no decisions. There’s no decision. Tomorrow in the game only or before game but it could be a big step for us, of course, in the right direction for us. Of course – we want to see the next step in development, it’s not easy. We don’t have too much time for training. Ok – but it’s not a problem. It’s a situation I knew before so we don’t have to talk about it so often but it is like it is.”
“I hope so, I can not say to much about the atmosphere in Anfield. I want to go there I want to feel. We will see – that’s what we spoke about. That’s what we are all waiting for this special moment. We know abut our job that we have to do for the special atmosphere.”
“That’s not normal – three matches in five days (Jordan Rossiter) and send him back. I will have to talk to somebody. We are in contact, Andy and Chris are in contact, but I didn’t want to have my first day at Melwood to have a call with someone from the FA but, for sure, this is not ok.
