Jurgen Klopp defends captain Jordan Henderson from "shit stories"


Jurgen Klopp defends captain Jordan Henderson from

The left back is to visit another specialist next week when the injury he suffered in the 7-0 Champions League victory against Spartak Moscow in midweek will be assessed again. "On January 31 we can shake hands and say: "what a wonderful time we had together", the journalists and me, not Phil and me".

Liverpool signed a new left back in the summer transfer window in the form of Andrew Robertson but the Scottish worldwide has mostly warmed the bench this season because Klopp has preferred Moreno. Sorry, he finished playing football and we can not get him back.

"But it doesn't mean he can play all of the games until he is injured".

"I made the decision for the last game", Klopp said, "and I only spoke about it because I knew people would say, "oh yes, fantastic game, Jordan didn't play" and then make a shit story of it". I live in the city and I get how some people are talking about (him)'.

"And now I've said a little bit about it. Story done". Henderson gets the same level of criticism that other players do when performances are poor but he also gets the "our captain should be more super-legendy" criticisms.

"I'm not sure whether it's an English thing or old-fashioned or whatever but even a captain can not play all the time, said Klopp".

"I thought it made real sense, in these weeks".

Coutinho signed a new five-year contract at Liverpool worth around £150,000 per week in January, making him the highest paid player at the club. You need these players on the pitch that know 100 percent what the derby is about.

However Barcelona will be expected to return with offers during the near future and it does look like Coutinho is keen on joining the club where many South American legends have played as he handed in a transfer request during the summer.

"Jordan is the skipper of this team and he's a very important player for us".

"We have a saying in Germany, "the hair in the soup" and the world is like this".
