Jurgen Klopp makes transfer admission after Tranmere win

Jurgen Klopp makes transfer admission after Tranmere win

The 18-year-old suffered a knee injury in Thursday's pre-season friendly win over Tranmere, and underwent a scan on Friday to assess the extent of the damage. He realised it was a tough time (but) we never gave him up in that time, (we never said) "OK, that will never work again", but sometimes in football you don't have enough time. The likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Alisson Becker are all yet to return from global duty while Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri are nursing injuries.

"I love the boy, he is a fantastic player, but one of the goals I would have scored", said the manager.

"The transfer market is open I don't know exactly until when, when does it finish?" This wonderful country, the whole of Europe had the idea to close the transfer window early and the only country who did it was England finally.

Adam Lewis tripped Clayton Donaldson and Eoin Doyle coolly slotted the resulting spot kick in a game that raised funds for the Darby Rimmer MND Foundation, which was launched by former Liverpool and Bradford defender Stephen Darby following his MND diagnosis and retirement from football a year ago.

As such, Origi was the subject of interest from several clubs, especially considering he had just a single year remaining on his contract with Liverpool. "We will see. He has to play different positions - the centre, wing is possible I think, but there will be opportunities for him I am sure".

Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold provided a quite ridiculous 23 league assists last season, and Lewis appears to have all the tools to follow in their footsteps: insatiable energy and a wand of a left peg. He follows Glatzel, Bobby Duncan and Rhian Brewster in young forwards playing in the first-team at the moment.

"We brought them in already, only you don't realise it. Rhian Brewster; Oxlade-Chamberlain didn't play a year ago; all the young boys today".

"It looked tonight like they are all confident". That's why we did it and it was good fun.
