Last quote by Juergen Klopp

He had a little problem with his calf – it's not an injury but a little problem – and we all have to get used to this and manage this a little bit better.feedback

We can learn a lot about a person if we know what types of things he or she talks about or comments on the most frequently. There are numerous topics with which Juergen Klopp is associated, including Peter and Chelsea. Most recently, Juergen Klopp has been quoted saying: “That's the world of football, it is quite quick with all that stuff. I'm not a aware of it [the criticism] but I can imagine. Ox had a few good really, really good situations and a few unlucky situations. I thought he did well in them moments where you could see he tried to adapt to the style of play and all that stuff. If you take the right information from the things we did so far then it always helps. That's what I try to help the players with – why should I be in doubt that we will already do it better on Saturday?” in the article Klopp backs Oxlade-Chamberlain and Liverpool to bounce back.

Juergen Klopp quotes

Sep 20 2017

We want to go to the next round. Nobody was interested in who plays the better first half. Everybody was interested in who would go through and we are not the team who's in the next round – and for some good reasons.feedback

Sep 20 2017

Defending is different things. It's common together defending and it's individual defending, it's one-on-one situations, it's two-on-one situations. I don't think teams shoot a lot against us, I know they don't, they have not a lot of finishing situations.feedback

Sep 20 2017

I'm in the boat, it's not that I say 'I told you and you don't know'. I feel really bad in the moment about this, of course it's not about not knowing it's about doing it in that moment – that's hard in the moment, it feels really hard in this moment to go out because of this [and] after that performance in the first half.feedback

Sep 20 2017

We defend really well in a lot of moments – how everyone can imagine, we know how to defend a set-piece, a throw-in, and then you change two or three times and then in the end, obviously it doesn't work.feedback

Sep 20 2017

It doesn't feel too cool but it's the truth that we are still a good football team. I see it but unfortunately it doesn't feel it at the moment because it's a cup competition. I don't think teams shoot a lot against us, I know they don't, they have not a lot of finishing situations.feedback

Sep 19 2017

That we conceded like this, that makes me really, really sick. That's hard. Then the reaction, you saw a young team, we played one-twos on the left wing at 2-0 and then [Leicester] made a counter-attack. These are mistakes I can live with because the two boys [Ben Woodburn and Solanke] together are about 34 [in combined age], so that can happen.feedback

Sep 19 2017

But defending set pieces, it wasn't the first ball [for the first goal] – we had problems with this and now we had it with the second or third even and then the throw in.feedback

Sep 19 2017

So, hide them as long as it makes sense and send them out as soon as possible. That's the plan. But he is now the perfect age and still is able to make big steps. I thought he played in the last game like a Liverpool player: highest intensity, all good, was not fixed in a position, flexible, half-left, half-right, in the box.feedback

Sep 19 2017

A new start is, very often, kind of a relief. You are in a situation in your old club – I don't say it now for Alex especially but in general it's like this – you are in a specific position and you accept it at some point and then it's difficult to make the next step. We play different to Arsenal, that's clear. It doesn't mean better or worse, it just means different.feedback

Sep 19 2017

Probably, when Alex was 18 or 19 people thought he could be 'the man', like a lot of people think a lot of times pretty early. But, as I always say, you immediately put a rucksack on their back and that makes development not easy.feedback

Sep 19 2017

I saw already a lot of things and, at the end, he didn't score a goal so probably a lot of people will say that's not a proper Liverpool player. But I'm really happy to have him here and I hope he is also happy to be here.feedback

Sep 19 2017

It's clear we want him and he also wants to stay. It is about a few little details.feedback

Sep 19 2017

Arsenal changed a lot of since Alex is there. I'm sure they didn't always play with three in the back, wing-backs and stuff like this. I played against Arsenal when Alex was centre-mid, I played against Arsenal when he was on the wing, I played Arsenal when he was wing-back. He played different positions and that all is highest quality.feedback

Sep 19 2017

That makes development not easier, so hide them as long as makes sense. That's the plan. But he's now in the perfect age and is still able to make big steps.feedback

Sep 19 2017

If you can play in the Premier League in different positions, that says a lot of you. It's a judgement from outside that you don't develop. But playing different positions is development.feedback

Sep 19 2017

We can already use him and that's good, but we also want to prepare him – that's all. It's all good.feedback

Sep 19 2017

It's just because we play different to Arsenal.feedback

Sep 19 2017

That doesn't mean better or worse, it's just means different. At least being involved in a different football [style] is already development because it helps you react in different moments, so that's not always doing the same.feedback

Sep 19 2017

The story of this game is really easy to tell. We were the much better team in the first half, we didn't score – that's sometimes part of football. It was unlucky in one or two moments, maybe not clinical enough in others. But as long as we concede goals like we conceded today again, then it is quite difficult.feedback

Sep 19 2017

After the first goal you saw the heads from Leicester went up, that was a bigger difference. The game changes in moments like this – you have the chance to do it by yourself or sometimes you are on the wrong side. But that we concede like this, that makes me really, really sick.feedback

Sep 18 2017

When Alex was probably 18 or 19, people thought he could be 'the man' – how a lot of people think a lot of the time pretty early. How I say, you immediately put a rucksack on their back.feedback

Sep 18 2017

I think it would be strange if I have to say something about a player after two-and-a-half weeks when Arsene Wenger said this after working together with him for six or seven years. But a new start is very often kind of a relief. You are in a situation in your old club – I don't say this for Alex especially, just in general it is like this – you are in a specific position and accept it and then at some point it's difficult to make the next step.feedback

Sep 18 2017

So far I can't see that [he struggles to believe in himself]. He has settled in perfectly, but he knew all the England players and a few others. He's really nice lad so it's easy for him to settle in the team, he takes the situation like it is.feedback

Sep 18 2017

We have to take the criticism and the blame. It's not allowed for us to be happy or satisfied after [Burnley], but we cannot question everything. I can see the good and the bad things.feedback

Sep 18 2017

Solanke hit the crossbar, do I need to talk to him about this? Outside, people do.feedback

Sep 18 2017

I didn't see a lack of being ruthless. They were in the right positions. For example: Sturridge, usually he will score [against Burnley]. Shall I go to him and say, Daniel, what are you doing?feedback

Sep 16 2017 - Russia

We have to be strong, I know that, but we really can be strong.feedback

Sep 16 2017

That's a very important thing, so we have quite a good form or shape. We didn't win all of them and we lost one [to a] really high [score], but everyone who was there [saw it was a] strange game – it was not that we performed from the first second like you would imagine when somebody loses 5-0.feedback

Sep 16 2017

Yes, we have to improve, but [there are] a lot of really positive things. Unfortunately, I still don't feel any positivity in this moment, I am still in the 1-1 mood, but it is easy to see all the positive things from tomorrow on again. They are there.feedback

Sep 16 2017

We still have space for improvement, that was clear before the season, but we could have won pretty much all our games so far when you think about the performance.feedback

Sep 16 2017

We created moments. You cannot create in each situation a finishing situation, but we did it absolutely often enough. It feels strange, it feels wrong, but it's a fact – we drew.feedback

Sep 16 2017

Could Trent have won the first headed challenge? Yes.feedback

Sep 16 2017

Oh yeah, sometimes they make bulls**t, and we are not happy. Sometimes [there are] goals I'm angry about, and it's not the first one. Of course you wish we could have done differently, but that can happen. That's really life.feedback

Sep 16 2017

Let's say when I came here we started new and now we have this team. When I came in we were ninth and now, ooofff.' We are really on a good way.feedback

Sep 16 2017

My job is really to make the best out of this season and it's easy for me in a lot of moments to believe in this team – it's easy.feedback

Sep 16 2017

It will need real, proper work - shooting in the right moments, passing in the right moments and crossing in the right spaces.feedback

Sep 16 2017

That's something I have to consider when I do the line-up - we need freshness in mind and in legs for this game. There will be really small spaces, there won't be a lot of easy situations where you can outplay them or whatever.feedback

Sep 16 2017

They have a clear plan, and you can see it and see it and see it in each game. They stick to it and it's so difficult to play against it because their players show big desire to defend all the situations.feedback

Sep 15 2017

No. We watched all of them 500 million times, and to cool the people down what if the new player doesn't hit the first ball and he makes exactly the same mistake? A mistake they all made in their life – but it is like, he is a £65 million signing, he will improve. Why do you think the other one cannot improve? I don't understand that. My job is really to make the best out of this season and it's easy for me in a lot of moments to believe in this team – it's easy.feedback

Sep 15 2017

For me it's really difficult always to come to your planet, visit you and say 'yeah you're right, there were five good options out there and we missed them because, I don't know, we wanted to spend the money anywhere else.feedback

Sep 15 2017

A mistake they all made in their life – but it is like, he is a £65 million signing, he will improve. Why do you think the other one cannot improve? I don't understand that.feedback

Sep 15 2017

Sometimes we make mistakes because we are offensively that strong.feedback

Sep 15 2017

Really, with all this about [our defenders] go out there and ask other teams whether they'd like to pick them. You would be really surprised.feedback

Sep 15 2017

It is concentration. It is not a quality thing. But if there's no-one, no solution out there, and no real quality issue then you have to work on it and that is what we will do.feedback

Sep 15 2017

It is not that we ignore it - I said if there would have been a solution out there we would have done it. I had to make a decision and the decision was our boys are not worse than them. My job is really to make the best out of this season and it's easy for me in a lot of moments to believe in this team – it's easy.feedback

Sep 15 2017

It was really nice how the crowd welcomed him. Nobody was 100 per cent sure about this - I think for him it was good. He was outstanding in training in the few sessions we've had so far.feedback

Sep 15 2017

The game was not perfect, but that's how it is after the long break. However, it helped him and it helped us. [Phil Coutinho] trained outstanding in the few sessions we had together. For sure, he's ready to think about [as a starter].feedback

Sep 14 2017

It is not a general defending problem but we have to improve 100 per cent.feedback

Sep 14 2017

It is about being dominant and losing a bit of a grip on the game in all the defensive moments.feedback

Sep 14 2017

We know we have to improve but there is so much potential and we can work with this. It is a draw, it does not feel too good but I am fine with big parts of the performance. It does not make too much sense to be frustrated, we have to take it. It is not what we wanted, not what we deserved. They had two chances, no more so we were the dominant side and defended well.feedback

Sep 13 2017

If we shoot that often and don't score then probably it is a problem, but I don't think it will be like this. In a game like this, usually you score more often than we did tonight, so nobody should rely on this that we try that often and don't score. That's all space for improvement for all of us. We need to learn to be dominant and not to give easy goals away and the first one was, for sure, not necessary and too easy.feedback

Sep 13 2017

The second, I have absolutely no clue how they came through that, to be honest, I have to see that again. It's not a general defending problem but we have to improve, 100 per cent.feedback

Sep 13 2017

The most important thing in football is creating chances and we did that in different situations. Could we have scored? Yes, but we didn't.feedback

Sep 13 2017

We will come back stronger. We will use the time we do not have in Europe and train and we will make other finals.feedback

Sep 13 2017

At this moment we expect him back in the morning for normal training.feedback

Sep 13 2017

He was in and the doctor told me Mo Salah can train, but what would be best for him is if he doesn't have to. He has a little bit of a sore throat. It shouldn't be that serious [but] he can't spread the virus if there is one.feedback

Sep 13 2017

It was pretty much a winning performance for 85-86 minutes and the team played well against a side who play well. We had answers for everything apart from the goals. I have to see them again. That is not the good thing. It was an exciting game from my side, everyone saw our desire and passion but we got a point.feedback

Sep 13 2017

We are good in the counter-attack and it was an unlucky start for us. Things like this can happen but reaction is the important thing. We could have scored more often but if we continue playing like this, we will get points. In this moment it does not feel perfect.feedback

Sep 12 2017

I could give you an idea at this stage. But I'm sure Liverpool supporters around the world are ready to wait another 24 hours.feedback

Sep 12 2017

What I can say is, if nothing happens overnight, Loris Karius will play – that's true.feedback

Sep 12 2017

We don't want to underestimate this, it looks awful and Ederson was lucky nothing more serious happened in this situation.feedback

Sep 12 2017

I'm not sure if I'm disappointed, I didn't expect anything different. I thought our appeal was absolutely right. We never appealed the red card, only the length of the suspension. But actually I never thought [a reduction in the ban] would happen, only because I am used to things like this. It's not an English thing. There were lots of situations in the last few weeks that were similar. If you want, all the other players were lucky. Only Sadio was not lucky and Ederson was not lucky.feedback

Sep 12 2017

The most important thing for me to say is not even one per cent of Sadio wanted to put the goalkeeper in danger. He wanted to get the ball. It's important he wants to do that in all the games he plays. We cannot change this. It's a sport where things like this happen.feedback

Sep 12 2017

We only wanted to bring into relation with the other issues. If they would have said: 'It's two games, not three games' then I think it would still be a red card.feedback

Sep 12 2017

He already has half-a-game suspension from City, so I think it would have been a right decision if they would have said: 'One game less', so it's two and a half instead of three and a half.feedback

Sep 12 2017

It was our duty to appeal, but as I said after the game, it was a waste of time.feedback

Sep 12 2017 - Doping

I thought that [Financial] Fair Play was made so that situations like that can't happen.feedback

Sep 10 2017

I pray he heals fast and is back playing very soon because he is highest quality player.feedback

Sep 10 2017

I was outside with Pep and we both didn't think it's a red card.feedback

Sep 09 2017

Sadio is very very very upset. He is shocked about the situation and I am sure also about the situation. It was an accident – very unlucky. Everyone knows he didn't see the goalie.feedback

Sep 09 2017

It was a hard lesson today. It was a difficult situation. I was still positive but with one man down against City, it is really not the best place to be. We could have done better in the second half. It was hard for the boys but I don't look for excuses. We also need to learn in the first half we need to influence the game in another direction. We need to score here. Everybody saw it.feedback

Sep 09 2017

We should have scored in the first half and we should have had more chances. Mo Salah was three or four times on the touchline in the 18-yard box or even in the six-yard box and no one was on the front post.feedback

Sep 09 2017

I will try to ignore the result. Not the mistakes but the result. That is already done.feedback

Sep 09 2017

I saw the goalie already and obviously it's not that bad. In the first moment everyone thought it was really bad.feedback

Sep 09 2017

The decisive decision in the whole game was the red card. I don't think it was a red card, it's unlucky, an accident.feedback

Sep 09 2017

He could have played 15, 20 minutes again in the City game, maybe longer, but I think really it makes sense (to leave him out).feedback

Sep 09 2017 - Champions League

The medical guys are pleased with how he is responding and Nathaniel has shown a really strong attitude, given he is not someone who is used to being out injured.feedback

Sep 09 2017

Can we? What would be your advice? So it never works. It would be another waste of time, like the game today.feedback

Sep 09 2017

[It was] an accident. Very unlucky. Everyone knows he didn't see the goalie. He just wanted to get the ball as soon as possible.feedback

Sep 08 2017

In the system we use at the moment, he can play in four different positions.feedback

Sep 08 2017

It was never considered that we would swap him. That's why I didn't call him, that's why he didn't call me, and if he was considering moving on, he should have called me. But it didn't happen because I think he is 100 per cent committed with us.feedback

Sep 08 2017

Now we have to get him back in this situation as quick as possible.feedback

Sep 08 2017

You can't say 'no' and it stops in one day, that's how it is. You have to go through these times and things can be good if you are smart enough to start again.feedback

Sep 08 2017

I said yesterday in the dressing room 'Boys, welcome two new players: Alex (Oxlade-Chamberlain) and Phil. He loves football and he still loves this club so there is no problem.feedback

Sep 08 2017

The only thing to do now is to bring him into the shape before he was before the back problems because he played outstanding football in Hong Kong.feedback

Sep 08 2017

This makes it easy for me. It's always a decision for one game. We made a few changes against Crystal Palace - it was a different performance, but it was really good and good enough to win the game.feedback

Sep 08 2017

At the moment, we need to be ready all the time and that means we need more players. That means we have to rotate to keep the intensity levels up and minimise the risks of injuries.feedback

Sep 08 2017

He can fit in a few positions. We want to have him on the pitch as often as possible.feedback

Sep 08 2017

If we are smart enough to use this quality, it is possible we can be successful this season.feedback

Sep 08 2017

Nobody should play 60 games in a season. If you use a player all the time, you are accepting injuries. We have to adapt.feedback

Sep 08 2017

Football will hopefully change in the next few years so that, after a few games, we give them a little rest and say we don't need football this weekend.feedback

Sep 08 2017

Before he went to Brazil, he couldn't train for around three weeks. That means we have to try to prepare him now for the rest of the season - that's quite difficult with our schedule.feedback

Sep 08 2017

It was not an easy time, but that's the transfer window. It's not the first time and it won't be the last time that similar things will happen.feedback

Sep 08 2017

But I think this makes sense - and he agreed completely so it's not that he said he doesn't need training and wants to play. It was a good conversation.feedback

Sep 08 2017

He played twice for 15 to 20 minutes [for Brazil], so he could have played 15 to 20 minutes in the City game, maybe longer.feedback

Sep 08 2017

So I have decided to leave him out of the squad for City. We can use these four or five days for proper training - we have all the numbers [regarding Coutinho's physical performance] from the Brazilian FA.feedback

Sep 08 2017

[The rest of the squad] know him. He wasn't in for three, now four weeks with the international break, that is nothing. They are really good friends. They understand it a bit. They probably wished it could have been different, but now it is not anything.feedback

Sep 08 2017

Everyone has this little bit of understanding and thinks 'OK it's Barcelona' and it is not that he wants to go to Everton. Then it would have been different I would say. Another wonderful club but a different situation.feedback

Sep 07 2017

We always have the same decision to make, does he need training or can he play?' and all that stuff. Yes, he will now do a little bit more than the other boys but he showed up in a very, very good mood and looks really promising.feedback

Sep 07 2017

I know what people think, but Phil had the back problem a few weeks ago and couldn't train so that means he missed around about three weeks.feedback

Sep 07 2017

We have now to continue with the pre-season, not too long, but in a few sessions we have to give ourselves the time because in the next month we have seven games.feedback

Sep 06 2017

He's definitely a manager that's very animated on the side and you sort of feel like you get to know him without even knowing him when you listen to him in his press conferences - and then the insights I've had from the boys on him.feedback

Sep 06 2017

First of all, what he's achieved, you respect that straight away and how much he knows about the game, and then all his extra attributes - his relationships with the players and how he pushes you, encourages you and what he demands from you - that's like a bonus. That's what makes him special in my eyes.feedback

Sep 03 2017

Dortmund decided [Dembele] would leave them, so I cannot compare the two situations. We still have a really good player in the squad who can play.feedback

Sep 03 2017

We are not like George Orwell where everybody knows everything immediately. We have exactly the situation we wanted and no other.feedback

Aug 31 2017 - Champions League

This is someone making a tough decision to leave one great club and come to another great club and I think he had many options, so to get him means I am delighted.feedback

Aug 31 2017

He didn't make an easy decision but I think he made a great one to go on this journey with this squad of talented boys and our great supporters. I welcome him to the Liverpool family.feedback

Aug 30 2017

He fits our young team perfectly with his dynamism, outstanding technical and tactical abilities as well as a great character.feedback

Aug 29 2017

The "situation is not perfect.feedback

Aug 28 2017

If players come in, I think it makes sense to think about what we do on the other side. But we have to do the right things, look at the right players and negotiate with the right clubs.feedback

Aug 28 2017

We are not afraid of big numbers at the club, we are not afraid to spend.feedback

Aug 28 2017

There are no games now so I hope you [the press] can enjoy the next five or six days with all the rumours and all that stuff. I'm not looking forward to it but it's part of the game eh?feedback

Aug 27 2017

I told Si yesterday and it's not that he gave me a hug and told me 'boss, that's exactly what I thought we should do' but I wanted to do it and I wanted to give him this rest.feedback

Aug 27 2017

That means you cannot deal with it like you would do when you have a clear number two and a clear number three. Yes, Simon is a clear number one, but the others are not clear number two and number three as they are outstanding goalkeepers.feedback

Aug 27 2017

Simon has done outstandingly good so far, he won the race in pre-season. He is a machine, he's always there. He is really, really reliable.feedback

Aug 27 2017

In the stadium we all need to get used to playing football in close situations. You need to play in close spaces as a goalkeeper and an outfield player and he did a good job today and I'm happy.feedback

Aug 27 2017

I wanted to have Loris in goal in this game. He did a lot of good things, he played really cool football – yes, he was sometimes a little too cool and waited a little bit too long.feedback

Aug 27 2017

Intensity for a goalkeeper is different. It's not physical, it's mental. We created a situation before the season that we said we want to have three really strong goalkeepers.feedback

Aug 27 2017

We were very good, obviously. We've learned from each game so far and built on it so it was even better than against Hoffenheim. There was pressure on the boys and we wanted to show our desire to do something special and the boys did it really well.feedback

Aug 27 2017

If you give Arsenal time, space and the opportunity to do what they want then you've already lost before the game starts. We had to learn to feel the pain in the game but to ignore it. It was clear that it would be hard and we defended really well.feedback

Aug 27 2017

I know him really well and he's much better than he has been in the last two games. It's a situation which Liverpool have as a long-term project.feedback

Aug 27 2017

Karius has a lot of things that other goalkeepers want to have. We want to develop the players - we don't want to convince people that he's not bad.feedback

Aug 26 2017

Yes, maybe [because of the way we press] – not sure, but we don't press all the time, so you can play. It's high intensity, high quality, they're really good.feedback

Aug 26 2017

You watch the games back and it is like this. When we played at Anfield, the 3-3 [in January 2016], there were a lot of long balls to [Olivier] Giroud, for his chest.feedback

Aug 26 2017

They had a few good signings. [Sead] Kolasinac good signing, I've known him a long time, the whole world has talked about Lacazette and Arsenal got him – a really good team.feedback

Aug 26 2017

You can't play a little bit of football and hope to get anything from Arsenal, they are too strong, I really respect their work a lot.feedback

Aug 26 2017

Mesut Ozil, [Alexis] Sanchez, whoever, [Theo] Walcott, [Alexandre] Lacazette, Giroud, and it's really difficult to step in, but that's a part of the game, we have to work hard again.feedback

Aug 26 2017

No [it's not a great quote], it wasn't even right! I never thought that anybody would remind me about it one more time after that. Four years ago and you're still coming up with this.feedback

Aug 26 2017

They have so many good players. You can't just concentrate on one or another, you just have to make sure they don't pass their way through you.feedback

Aug 26 2017 - Champions League

I cannot promise anyone they will play 10 games in a row but I will use everyone as much as possible and try to help them take the next step. When you see how Sadio Mané has been this season, you can understand how much we missed him for 15 games last season. If that was not a blow, I don't know what is. But we still got the results to finish fourth and now we have qualified for the Champions League group stages it feels a bit more like we finished third.feedback

Aug 26 2017 - World Cup

Mesut has always been a very important player for Germany, he won the World Cup three years ago, so I don't know why people give him the criticism.feedback

I remember the 3-3 draw with Arsenal we played here in my first season. If Arsenal that day had been without Özil and [Olivier] Giroud, we would have won 3-0. They only got back in through one long ball, Mesut had five players on him but he still managed to make something happen. He is an outstandingly skilled boy. I don't watch Arsenal often enough to have an opinion about all his games but if people are not happy with him I don't know why.feedback

Aug 26 2017

There is no doubt in Germany about the quality of Mesut Özil. The country is blessed with a lot of world-class or close to world-class players in his position yet he is a fixture in the German team. That should be a sign. Jogi Löw is known for sticking with the players who have brought him success but even he would not do that if others offered more.feedback

Aug 26 2017

Everyone is happy, I guarantee it, but I know what you mean. We can't say we do not have enough strikers, that is true. But we are still in the very early part of the season and we have a lot of games ahead of us. There are bound to be injuries. All the players will get chances.feedback

Aug 26 2017

That was true to an extent last season but a lot of the sides we dropped points against in the run-in we had already smashed in the first half of the season. You get different challenges throughout a season and you have to learn to win in different ways.feedback

Aug 25 2017

There are groups with Barcelona, Bayern, Juventus and Real Madrid, and not to get them is of course more good than bad. But I do not think that after this long way we should think about the opponents. We have to go and prepare.feedback

Aug 25 2017

The challenger should be 100 per cent concentrated and give everything, and that is what we will try to do.feedback

Aug 25 2017 - Ecuador elections 2017

Everyone thought, Robertson? From Hull?' But he showed up against Palace. [Having James] Milner in midfield is like a new transfer, [Alberto] Moreno is like a new left-back.feedback

Aug 25 2017

Until August 31, a lot of things are really possible, in and out. [Divock] Origi wasn't in the squad [against Hoffenheim on Wednesday] - that shows how big the quality here is. Dominic Solanke showed everything you want to see from a new player. Mo Salah, we don't need to talk about.feedback

Aug 25 2017

I am happy at the moment. Will I be happy on August 31? I don't know. Will I be even happier on August 31?feedback

Aug 25 2017

I was waiting for the message to say the baby had arrived! He will be available for Sunday.feedback

Aug 25 2017

I am fine with the defence, I am fine with the attack. We won three of four and we should have won the first one [a 3-3 draw at Watford].feedback

Aug 25 2017

Emre [Can] twisted a little bit but shouldn't be that serious. Nothing happened yesterday, so it should be OK.feedback

Aug 25 2017

It will take time because he has not trained for a long time. I've no idea at this moment [when he will return], we would have to check when he is back.feedback

Aug 25 2017 - Ecuador elections 2017

Andrew Robertson showed up against Crystal Palace. Before he showed up, I think everybody thought: 'Robertson from Hull?' And now think: 'Oh my God, he's really strong!' I'm completely fine and happy with him. Dominic Solanke showed everything you want to see from a new player in a really short time. Mo Salah, we don't have to talk about this. James Milner plays in midfield again – that's like a transfer for us. Alberto Moreno plays left-back again in an outstanding way. We will see what happens. I'm happy at the moment. Will I be happier after the 31st? We will see.feedback

Aug 25 2017 - Champions League

Until 31 August, that's how the business is – a lot of things are really possible, ins and outs. I've said it a few times, if the transfer window closed tomorrow, it is like it is and I'm happy with it. In the Champions League game [against Hoffenheim on Wednesday] Divock Origi was not in the squad. He did nothing wrong, that just shows how big the quality already is. That's just one example. Other players were also not in the squad.feedback

Aug 24 2017

We are not the favourite in the tournament, we are not the favourite in the group – we are just a challenger.feedback

Aug 24 2017

I thought the first half hour was a thunderstorm and I've really enjoyed it. I have not enough words for this, it's amazing. It's 14 months of the hardest work. To strengthen a team like this is not too easy. There are not too many players out there who are better than these players. There is nothing else to say. It's not that I don't want to talk about it, I just have nothing to say.feedback

Aug 24 2017

It feels in this moment, absolutely amazing. Big, big, big compliments to my team. They played a perfect first half an hour.feedback

Aug 24 2017

At half-time I asked them if they could remember the feeling they had at 3-0 and told them to put that feeling away because there was too much relief at that moment. To strengthen a team like this is not too easy. There are not too many players out there who are better than these players. There is nothing else to say. It's not that I don't want to talk about it, I just have nothing to say.feedback

Aug 24 2017

I really love the attitude of these players. Always people say we don't do this or we don't do that right but we hit back all the time.feedback

Aug 24 2017

To strengthen a team like this is not too easy. There are not too many players out there who are better than these players.feedback

Aug 24 2017

But credit to Hoffenheim they played football and continued to enjoy the game. They can score two goals because of their quality.feedback

Aug 24 2017 - Champions League

It's a big influence on the transfer market, especially if you do it [qualify for the Champions League] more often.feedback

Aug 23 2017 - Champions League

Yippee! I know you will always find a few people who will say 'It's just the Champions League or only the Champions League.' But we wanted to be part of it with all we have.feedback

Aug 23 2017

When you are in the group stage, then you want to go through and to the last 16. You want to go there and to the next round, that's how it is. A lot of things are possible but not because I say them, just because when we are really ready for all these games. It's so exciting now to be part of it.feedback

Aug 23 2017 - Champions League

We have to make the next step. The whole of last season we tried to qualify for the Champions League and we got fourth, so, if you like, this is part of last season and we want to close this case in the most positive way. I hope we will show the world what we are able to do.feedback

Aug 23 2017 - Champions League

Even if you want to extend the contract of a player in the squad they say 'we want to play Champions League'. I said before the game that if you talk to players - and players better than ours are difficult to find, I know a lot of people think differently but we do the work and it's not easy to find 20 top players in each position - they say 'oh if you play Champions League, it would be really great because the club is good, the manager is not too bad' and all this stuff.feedback

Aug 23 2017 - Champions League

I want to play Champions League. I always think: 'WTF, it's your job to do it with us together.feedback

Aug 23 2017

The start of the game was like a thunderstorm. If you win away 2-1 in the first leg the opponent can imagine that you will sit back and wait to counter attack in the second leg. We thought it would make sense to do it differently, with high pressure. We did it really well. The football we played was really fantastic. Usually after 3-0 that early it's normal that there is a little break. I don't like it but it's normal.feedback

Aug 23 2017 - Champions League

Yippee! It means everything. It's what we worked for in the last 14 months. We wanted to be a part of the Champions League with all we have and I thought the boys played a few pieces of outstanding football. Against an opponent like Hoffenheim you always have a few problems, that's how it is, but I'm really happy about the deserved qualification for the group stages.feedback

Aug 23 2017 - Champions League

It is a big influence in the transfer market. If you talk to a player they will say, If you are playing Champions League it will be interesting', or even if you want to extend a players' contract. It is what the club and the team worked for in the last 14 months. It is so exciting to be part of it. It is three years since I was there. I love it, the players love it and the fans love it. We will have fantastic nights at Anfield.feedback

Aug 22 2017

We are all excited about the possibility. You can look on it as a final or in different ways as a fan, as an owner, as a player or as a manager but in the end it is a football game. We know the Anfield atmosphere can and will help us. I hope everyone is ready to fight.feedback

Aug 22 2017

I know it is a legend of Anfield on European nights, they are really special and we need these special nights. Everyone who wants this needs to do their job.feedback

Aug 22 2017

We are all excited about the possibility. It is a fantastic competition so far already for both teams really intense, so we have to deliver 100 per cent from the first day. We have to go immediately.feedback

Aug 22 2017

We only know we had a good result, not a perfect result, but a good one. And, together with Anfield, we have to put it to bed.feedback

Aug 22 2017

Usually people in England think you get fourth place and you are automatically through but this year it is different. The teams are stronger. We know that nothing is guaranteed but everything is possible, and that is enough.feedback

Aug 22 2017

We want to learn from our mistakes and what we did over there. The big difference between the game last week and now is that everybody knows how strong the opponent is. I don't think anyone thinks 'Great, halfway through.feedback

Aug 22 2017

I am not going to say to the players 'Oh think about what will happen if we don't do it'. There are enough people around who think like this. We had a positive performance in Hoffenheim and that's what we need again.feedback

Aug 22 2017

I will not think about this when I am at home in my bed and thinking about the game. It is not about what can happen, it is about what we can influence. That is what is important.feedback

Aug 22 2017

I do not think in life it makes a lot of sense that if you have a big chance you think about the consequences if you lose it. In finals, you go for it and try your best. Is it good to be in a final? Yes. Is it good to lose it? No. But the only possibility to lose it is to go to it.feedback

Aug 22 2017

My English is not good enough to give five different answers to the same question. Nothing has changed.feedback

Aug 22 2017

One other player had it and was back in training today. But he has had no training for a long time, so we have no idea at the moment. We'll have to check when he's back. I never give comments on what whoever said or wrote but it's 100 per cent clear that nothing has changed. I do like Kerem, he's an excellent player, but he knows like me that football is not all about beauty.feedback

Aug 22 2017

We know the Anfield atmosphere can and will help us. I hope everyone is ready to fight.feedback

Aug 22 2017

Everyone knows the quality of Hoffenheim. It's only half-time.feedback

Aug 22 2017

It's not like ice skating where you are judged on the beauty of your performance. It''s about winning. There have been matches where the best team has lost.feedback

Aug 22 2017

I do like Kerem, he's an excellent player, but he knows like me that football is not all about beauty.feedback

Aug 22 2017

It makes sense that when the season is starting, planning for the team is over.feedback

Aug 22 2017

Of course. Absolutely 100%. It's 100% clear that nothing changed. I said already, nothing changed.feedback

Aug 22 2017

You can look on it as a final, , but in the end it is a football game. It is not allowed to make it bigger. That is how I see it. It is half-time and we are in the break. We spoke after the game last week, yesterday, today and tomorrow about Hoffenheim. We want to learn from our mistakes and what we did over there.feedback

Aug 20 2017

The biggest thing the team did last year was getting fourth without Sadio for pretty much half a year. I wasn't sure how long it was exactly but it was long.feedback

Aug 20 2017

He's a wonderful guy, really humble. He loves football, nothing bad in him, he's the kind of player who has contact with everybody. Not [in] a group here, or a group there. He likes all the boys but he's also really skilled in being alone, by himself and close to his family.feedback

Aug 19 2017

The defending was outstanding. Crystal Palace started playing football last week and then Huddersfield Town were 2-0 up and they went a little more direct. I think we defended this outstanding, good.feedback

Aug 19 2017

I'm informed about everything that happens in the club but nothing changed. I don't say there was another bid, only that nothing changed.feedback

Aug 19 2017

That was one problem we had against Watford: we were too early, too deep.feedback

Aug 19 2017

The first half could have been better, 100 per cent. Offensive football is about making the right decision at the right moment and we didn't see the spaces often enough. But we showed the players at half-time where the spaces were.feedback

Aug 19 2017

We didn't play too often with these three [midfield] players together. Millie did outstandingly good again but needs to adapt again of course, it's a different role to last year.feedback

Aug 19 2017

I think everybody could see how good Robbo, especially in the offensive situations, can be with a few more sessions. His crosses are a real threat. When you think a little bit about how you would feel if you were playing your first game at Anfield - you cannot be full of joy, there's a lot of pressure on yourself and he did really well. I'm really happy that we scored and we created chances in the second half. First half… offensive football, like always, is about making the right decision in the right moment.feedback

Aug 19 2017

Football playing in the first half could have been better, 100 per cent.feedback

Aug 19 2017

It's about timing and we didn't see the spaces in the first half often enough, but we could show the players at half-time where the spaces are – one little pass, one switch and the world is much nicer. We didn't do this often enough, we stuck in this area, looking there and forgetting the rest of the pitch. That was the problem.feedback

Aug 19 2017

We had nobody in the box from this position. If there's no-one in the box you cannot score.feedback

Aug 19 2017

Having a rest and doing a programme in the summer, he will be sorted. He started again and was not. That's how medicine is. I have had situations like this.feedback

Aug 19 2017

For us it's another situation which is not perfect. We work on these things to find a solution.feedback

Aug 19 2017

We only want players who can really contribute to the squad.feedback

Aug 19 2017

He's still very young, maybe, but we are also focusing on other players.feedback

Aug 19 2017

You're not going to throw money away, it has to be a quality player who can directly fit into the way we are playing and he has to be 100 per cent fit.feedback

Aug 19 2017

He (Burke) is a very young, promising Scottish player. He's from Great Britain so it's always interesting to see those kind of players.feedback

Aug 19 2017

No news from me because no-one told me anything different since we spoke last time about this.feedback

Aug 19 2017

That's the best news actually and then we'll see who can bring into the squad.feedback

Aug 19 2017

The good news is we didn't lose - and we will not lose - a player we want to keep this summer.feedback

Aug 18 2017

When I asked the medical department how he's doing, they had no complaints so that's how it is. I've got nothing bad to say about this.feedback

Aug 17 2017

I have nothing to say about his attitude. He has a back injury. Our medical department have no complaints.feedback

Aug 17 2017

We have a good age of the group. We have very young boys, experience – it's a good mix and we are on our way.feedback

Aug 17 2017

I am fine with the situation and I am very positive about the project of Liverpool. I don't see a lot of reasons for each player to leave the club at the moment and that's just in general.feedback

Aug 17 2017

I think we got rid of the expectations of 20 years ago and created our own expectations for all the people. They expect a lot from us because of what we did last season.feedback

Aug 17 2017

Can you imagine for a minute I am not a little bit interested about the problems or not of Barcelona? I will never talk about something I spoke about with a player. But you can imagine, in general, I think for each player Liverpool is a very good club, a very good team in the moment.feedback

Aug 15 2017

He is an incredible young player. I have to say for an 18-year-old who has the balls to take a free-kick like that, it is rather more exciting and interesting for me than a little mistake he makes.feedback

Aug 15 2017

It was a bit lucky as the wall didn't jump but it was a very good free-kick and very important for us.feedback

Aug 15 2017

Trent is a great player and I have to say I'd rather win 2-1 than 1-0.feedback

Aug 15 2017

Hoffenheim had a specific plan to play. We gambled a little too much on the wing - it was a little dangerous in the first half.feedback

Aug 15 2017

He took it because I told him he has to do it. I don't take credit for the free-kick because he takes them better than I ever could. But I watched as many under-23 games as I could last season and he took many of the free-kicks then. The goal is the same size even if the wall is not as tall. There is always a big challenge between him and Ben Woodburn with free-kicks after training. It was good. He was lucky the wall didn't jump but it was a very important moment for us.feedback

Aug 15 2017

I have to say for an 18-year-old to have the balls to kick a free-kick like that is more interesting and exciting for me than a little mistake he made. It was an intensive game for him. He has still some things to learn. He thought it was offside but it was obviously not offside, unfortunately. Trent is a great player and I have to say I would rather have 2-1 than 1-0.feedback

Aug 14 2017

I'm not really interested in the experience an opponent has. We've been together for 20 months, I think, we always try to give good analysis for our players.feedback

Aug 14 2017

I'm really happy for my friend and agent because I'm the old horse in the stable and there's a young horse already!feedback

Aug 14 2017

His mind is not elsewhere. It is an important contract for him at his age.feedback

Aug 14 2017

The situation is not perfect, I would prefer that he has already signed, but I am still positive we can find the right solution for both sides.feedback

Aug 14 2017

It's not about having to make a decision about bringing in another player in the same position, the same size, the same skills.feedback

Aug 14 2017

We are still in talks. Do I think it is too cool that we didn't fix it so far? No, to be honest. But it is all okay at the moment and we have to take it like this.feedback

Aug 14 2017

I am 100 per cent sure that we don't sell the player now in this situation. Not a player from the first team line-up, for sure. He will play here for the next year. All the rest, we have to see.feedback

Aug 14 2017

I really understand that everyone's interested in this but I can't say that I'm really thinking about it at this moment.feedback

Aug 14 2017

He's not available for us at the moment so that's the main issue. He cannot play for Liverpool at this moment and it's quite a blow for us.feedback

Aug 14 2017

But we've known about it for a few days so we can prepare, like we have to prepare without Adam Lallana, Daniel Sturridge who is really close, two more sessions and he'll be available for the weekend.feedback

Aug 14 2017

I didn't think on the way to this press conference, what can I say if they ask? I've said everything about it that I can say. I have no other answers.feedback

Aug 14 2017

The best thing would be for this team to stay together for four, five years, although I know it's quite naive to say things like that.feedback

Aug 14 2017

We got things wrong and what do I want to do to sort it? Buy a new player in that position? I am not really sure if it makes sense. We have to work on it because we did well in pre-season in this situation.feedback

Aug 14 2017

We are in talks and we work on all parts of the game. The squad at the moment is not too wide for a lot of games. That's it.feedback

Aug 14 2017

If, for example, there is an offer for a player and I say, No', and the owners say, Yes, let's ask for a number on how much they want to pay. And I say, I don't want to hear it. But they say, We want to hear it, £50million … £50 million is cool. So then they sell the player – that is how a club works.feedback

Aug 14 2017

It's not important what I think. I have the player from August 31 latest, again, or when the back issue is sorted. There is nothing else I can say about it. I think I said, I have bosses', right? I have many bosses, including my wife. I can live with this, it's no problem. They [the owners] are 100 per cent clear on it. There is nothing else to say.feedback

Aug 14 2017

If they [FSG] say they [Barcelona] will bid whatever and we don't want it then it is a clear message. We don't want money, we want to invest in the team and have the best team because we have aims and dreams. That is the message.feedback

Aug 14 2017

That is how it was with Hans-Joachim Watzke [chief executive] at Dortmund. Do you think I said, Sell Nuri Sahin to Real Madrid as quick as possible?' It was not my decision. The player had a contract. They agreed. I am 100 per cent, really, 100 per cent [when I say] I don't ask for things I can't get and I respect the rules in the game.feedback

Aug 14 2017

There is a phenomenon and then people go looking for solutions. It makes sense that when the season is starting, planning for the team is over. But I also understand that some things take a bit more time. The whole market has changed – the behaviour of people.feedback

Aug 14 2017

This is the strongest qualification round. England play Germany and you can go out against Germany. We were both fourth last season, both in strong leagues, but that does not increase the pressure. We want to go to the group stages. That was our target for the whole of last season and now we have two steps to go – but they are the most difficult steps. That is how it is.feedback

Aug 14 2017

From all the signs of pre-season and the first game I think we are in a good moment. But we have to show it tomorrow.feedback

Aug 14 2017

It is not that I don't want to speak, it is that I can't change my answers. If they [FSG] say they [Barcelona] can bid whatever but we don't want it, then that is a clear message.feedback

Aug 14 2017

I'm really happy for my friend and my agent, Marc Kosicke. I'm getting older and am a lot older than Julian so I am the old horse in the stable. He is a big coaching talent. We don't know each other very well because when I left Germany he was an under-19s coach but we send each other messages.feedback

Aug 14 2017

I have really followed his way since then because I like good football and his teams play interesting football. I follow his way. He's not the only one but he is a really good example for a lot of young managers in Germany. It is a really interesting time for the manager's market in Germany at the moment.feedback

Aug 14 2017

I'm not really interested in the experience my opponent has. You have to learn these things and get your own experience. We are together 20 months and we always try to give good analysis to our players and analysis that is the truth. We show them images that speak for themselves. We know Hoffenheim will be confident, very aggressive and do tactical fouls. We know everything. We know about their quality.feedback

Aug 13 2017

Maybe everybody has a price – in the right moment. In the wrong moment? No price.feedback

Aug 12 2017

Good, he struggled a little at the beginning, playing too much on the wing. It's difficult to play on the right-hand side, [Jose] Holebas is a real strong boy. He's also really quick.feedback

Aug 12 2017

It was an away game as the first game against a physically really strong side. We started with not enough direction but did much better in the second half.feedback

Aug 12 2017

First of all, if I would be upset with the player, I would tell him.feedback

Aug 12 2017

Of course we knew it before but after this game we have a lot of things to do.feedback

Aug 12 2017

We had our moments then we conceded an offside goal. That's really not fun. Difficult to accept.feedback

Aug 11 2017

I've said it already a few times, but maybe it's not been 100% clear, but now you can read it - maybe that's the difference.feedback

Aug 11 2017

That's the way it will go and there's nothing else to say about this.feedback

Aug 11 2017

I can't keep players happy - I can't keep you happy! If you are happy, you are happy. If you're not happy, you will not be happy just because I say 'be happy. That's how life is. It's not about that in this moment, Phil is not available for us, and that for me is the bigger issue, that he's not able to play now.feedback

Aug 11 2017

Liverpool is not a club that has to sell players.feedback

Aug 11 2017

Today, no player on the planet is unsellable. But a transfer is also a question of timing and if you have the opportunity and the need to react to such a transfer.feedback

Aug 11 2017

Liverpool is not a club that has to sell players. That is set in stone. So what they offer in the end doesn't matter.feedback

Aug 11 2017

No, he has back problems. He was not in training since last Friday. No he is not available, he is also a doubt for Tuesday, unfortunately.feedback

Aug 10 2017

It's pretty simple. Until now it was simply seen as impossible. Then there is the list, with the release-clauses for Barcelona. Leo Messi, €300m.feedback

Aug 10 2017

In a period of just a month that suddenly sounds possible too. That used to be an outrageous amount. They just set that amount randomly. I mean who would pay €300m? And now it simply happened.feedback

Aug 10 2017

The biggest clubs can decide on that, where they would want to set a limit. €150m or €550m or whatever, and then no one would complain anymore. This is a topic now since it happened for the first time.feedback

Aug 10 2017

I don't even know if this is right. No coach would demand such a thing. That's been decided on other levels and now he is a PSG player, obviously. A simple solution would be a rule. Where we want to go and where this should stop.feedback

Aug 10 2017

Today no player on the planet is untouchable. But a transfer is also a question of timing and if you have the opportunity and the need to react to such a transfer.feedback

Aug 10 2017

Liverpool is not a club that has to sell players. That is set in stone. So what they pay in the end doesn't matter.feedback

Aug 10 2017

He's had no pre-season so far.feedback

Aug 10 2017

Beyond that we will monitor and wait and see. He is a boy with a world-class attitude to everything professionally and he has always come back in good time from injury setbacks since I have been here, so we will see.feedback

Aug 07 2017

We cannot force things and we would never get a centre-back just because someone is available.feedback

Aug 07 2017

I'm happy. You can imagine we still work on different things and we will see if it works.feedback

Aug 07 2017

Look out there and tell me five that would make us stronger. Then you win a prize! It's difficult.feedback

Aug 07 2017

We have four centre-backs. I don't think we need more.feedback

Aug 07 2017

I am here to work with this squad and not just always thinking, But if we don't get this or this.feedback

Aug 04 2017

He is a boy with a world-class attitude to everything professionally and he has always come back in good time from injury setbacks since I have been here, so we will see.feedback

Aug 04 2017

This morning I joked by saying: 'If you want to lift the trophy you also have to overcome Liverpool.' I felt that it would be Liverpool. We will give everything we have to qualify.feedback

That's Murphy's Law. That's a real tough opponent. But there wasn't an easy one in the draw, anyway. We are very happy to play against a special club in a legendary stadium.feedback

Aug 04 2017

I am sure, they won't drink three Scotch Whiskeys because they play us, but we are not without a chance.feedback

Aug 04 2017

Make other teams crazy with the qualities we have.feedback

Aug 03 2017

We are in talks. I speak to him every day, not about the contract but I speak to him. From my point of view everything is fine at the moment.feedback

Aug 03 2017

I have a wonderful relationship with [Robert] Lewandowski even though he left, [Mats] Hummels left when I was not there but we have wonderful relationships.feedback

Aug 03 2017

The plan is that they all make the next step, and it is about how we react when it doesn't work in our direction. That's when it is more difficult. If you lose a game, then lose another game then it is 'are we still strong?' or 'we are shaky'. I said we always want to develop this team, and there are two things to do - signings and training. So we did both. The signings are nice, either they play or they push another player. Now it's more difficult to play all the time.feedback

Aug 03 2017

I would love that history always happens like this. This club should not be compared to anything. You know and I know there is nothing like Liverpool. We know what we see in the players and we know what we have to do. We need to make sure it works much more often than it doesn't work.feedback

Aug 03 2017

If we stay together like this there will be a few hard decisions because they can't start all together. Then we have to see how this works. Be angry at me no problem, stay confident, that is important, then three days there is another game so be there again. There are a lot of challenges. Yes we are building something but building something should be independent of this or this. That's no message, that's how it is. When we became champions and won the double we lost Nuri Sahin. It's not that the world ends afterward.feedback

Aug 03 2017

Everyone thought: 'Oh my God!' Then we got [Ilkay] Gundogan. Did we know he was as good as Nuri? No. We hoped it and it worked out. That's how things happen.feedback

Aug 02 2017

It was a completely different job to do from the Bayern game. Atleti left the game to us and said 'come on.feedback

Aug 02 2017

In the first half, we had a few nice moments where we had some good crosses.feedback

Aug 02 2017

We didn't have freshness today, but we still have one-and-a-half weeks until our first game [at Watford].feedback

Aug 02 2017

That's the time we need to prepare for it. I am satisfied with how it is. It's very easy – next season we want to be as good as we can possibly be. We want to be better than last year, which isn't easy, but we don't set any limits to ourselves.feedback

Aug 02 2017

If you get to a shootout you want to win it, but that's not the important situation that we have today.feedback

Aug 02 2017

We've really trained hard, the boys have been great about it and done everything I've expected from them. We've had a very intensive programme, so that's why I am very, very happy with it.feedback

Aug 02 2017

I thought that [Financial] Fair Play was made so that situations like that can't happen. But that's more of a suggestion than a real rule.feedback

Aug 02 2017

As a manager, I look at that (how the team is shaping up), and maybe it's [because of] tiredness that it hasn't been 100 per cent but I see that we're getting there. We have really trained a lot around these games and it's not that we're fresh for the preparation games. I'm quite satisfied with how they've played but I think we can do better.feedback

Aug 01 2017

Nearly everything was super, but we're still in our preparations. We haven't played enough football so far. Bayern had too much possession tonight. We had to run around too much.feedback

Aug 01 2017

But at times my team showed how good they can play football. The third goal was great. In attack we were really good.feedback

Aug 01 2017

I see we are right at the start of getting there. We have trained a lot around these games. It's not that we are fresh and top fit for the preparation games. I am satisfied but I think we can play better.feedback

Aug 01 2017

It's Atletico [Madrid in the final] tomorrow and I hear it wasn't a friendly game for them against Napoli. I hope things will calm down as we want to play a bit.feedback

Aug 01 2017

It's a shame and I hope it's nothing serious.feedback

Aug 01 2017

He would play if he played like he did today, yes. It was a really good game by Alberto. Every second he was playing better, that's why we kept playing him. He looked really fit although he had a little problem with his thigh but we had a test with him this morning and he was OK. The players decide themselves how many games they play.feedback

Aug 01 2017

Nearly everything was good but we are still in our preparations, we haven't played enough football so far, and Bayern enjoyed too much possession tonight. We gave the ball to Bayern too much and we had to run around too much but at times my team showed how good they can play football. The third goal was great. In attack we were really good. In the first half we were very dangerous on the counter, the pressing was very good.feedback

Aug 01 2017

I hope things will calm down for tomorrow as we want to play a bit.feedback

Jul 30 2017

I think players like this understand each other. It's a good thing with having players of this quality. I was pleased but it was what I expected.feedback

Jul 30 2017

The pass was nice and the finish was not too bad also.feedback

Jul 29 2017

Unfortunately, the other teams are also really pretty strong in England, so we no choice but to be at our highest.feedback

Jul 29 2017

Then Hertha on the wings are strong and they have too many options inside, through the legs or whatever, and they chose the right thing very often.feedback

Jul 29 2017 - Ecuador elections 2017

That's exactly how it is. We are not where we want to be yet, but that is what pre-season is for. We have to work really hard now because we've got a long, long journey ahead. In this moment, it's good that everyone looks really positive, in tune, and that's how it should be. You could see exactly what he's good in and where he has to improve in 45 minutes - speed, good crosses, flexible and all that stuff. We are a dominant football team, or want to be a dominant football team, so you need the players who can make the difference, especially on the wing.feedback

Jul 29 2017

The new players are maybe better than people thought they will be! I think we said it early that we want to build on the squad from last year, and that's what we've tried to do.feedback

He needs to improve but he's a really good boy with a lot of perspective.feedback

Jul 29 2017

We are not where we want to be yet, but that is what pre-season is for. We have to work really hard now, because we've got a long, long journey ahead. In this moment, it's good that everyone looks really positive, in tune, and that's how it should be. Last night I had a long talk with him.feedback

Jul 29 2017

When I came in I saw him for just 20 minutes playing in the Under-21s. Then I saw the injury and I thought: 'Oh my God'. Everybody told me what a wonderful player he is. When he came back he was injured and then when he came back again he was heavy. He had a lot of muscle and you only need muscles like this if you're going to the beach. We had to work on this and now he's back. He lost weight, he's really fit, he looks sharp. There are still things to improve.feedback

Jul 29 2017

The full-back position is now unbelievably important because Clyney had no pre-season so far, Trent (Alexander-Arnold) is a fantastic player, but also just 18. We need these different options.feedback

Jul 29 2017

You could see exactly what he's good at and where he has to improve in 45 minutes - speed, good crosses, flexible and good in defence, apart from one or two situations.feedback

Jul 28 2017

Sadio will be in the squad, for sure.feedback

Jul 28 2017

If we will make 10 changes, I don't know actually. We will make a match squad of 20 or 22 players, I'm not sure. [Friday] will be really intense and then we will see who we should take then.feedback

Jul 27 2017

That means he will do his rehab here in Germany and then should be fit again when we're at home.feedback

Jul 27 2017

It was clear from the first day there's a little bit of tendon involved, so that means that it's around 10 days. That means he will do his rehab here in Germany and then should be fit again when we're at home. This is maybe the longest Clyney has been out with a little bit of [an issue with] the back. We have to wait, time is running and we need Clyney of course.feedback

Jul 27 2017

We have to wait, time is running and we need Clyney of course.feedback

Jul 27 2017

We have to defend different situations better and not to think about how we could make the other teams crazy with all the qualities we have. We are all sick of talking about it. We defend well but in these moments we have to come absolutely in the right mood. That's the main target.feedback

Jul 25 2017

We are not afraid of big numbers at the club, we are not afraid to spend. But we have to do the right things, look at the right players and negotiate with the right clubs.feedback

Jul 25 2017 - Manchester United

It doesn't mean we don't want to bring players in. We've always brought players in. Wonderful players like [Georginio] Wijnaldum.feedback

Jul 25 2017 - Manchester United

Maybe people know why I've said we are not doing too badly. Joel Matip. Again, Sadio [Mane]. A lot of good players already.feedback

Jul 25 2017 - Manchester United

But, it was not like – I don't know – [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic, Lukaku and others. Does that mean we can't do it? I have no idea. We will see.feedback

Jul 25 2017 - Manchester United

After a season there is a summer break and everybody starts – and I've said this before – feeling that the transfer window is more interesting than the league.feedback

Jul 25 2017 - Manchester United

We had a season of what Man United had the year before. I don't know if anybody asked us how it felt.feedback

Jul 23 2017

You can imagine we're involved in talks and we all feel good and confident in this moment. That means they're not the worst talks but until anything is done or signed there's nothing to say. Emre is a very important player for us. We don't want to sell or lose players who are in our first line up or close to it. Emre is certainly one of them. We want to keep him and we're having good talks.feedback

Jul 23 2017

With Lazar, it's no secret that if he finds a club then we will negotiate. It was like this last year too. He's a really good player. I like him as a person. He's now fit and another one who is in the best shape since I've known him.feedback

Jul 23 2017

Emre is certainly one of them. We want to keep him and we're having good talks.feedback

Jul 23 2017

That means they're not the worst talks but until anything is done or signed there's nothing to say.feedback

That he is able to play like he did tonight in a very difficult moment in pre-season after all these sessions is good to see and shows his big potential.feedback

Neymar joining PSG will change everything.feedback

Everybody knows that Phil Coutinho is a key player for us, no doubt. I know he feels completely more than fine, comfortable - or whatever - in Liverpool. He loves the club, he loves the city and all that is clear.feedback
