📣 Klopp on Mané's form, Origi and resting Van Dijk
Jürgen Klopp has been speaking to the media ahead of Liverpool’s clash with Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Here is what he had to say.
On Roberto Firmino’s fitness
“He’s not ready yet. He will be back training with the team at some point next week.”
On Crystal Palace team selection
“We have three games a week – playing Sunday, Wednesday and Saturday is tough.
“So we have to think about these kind of things. We will have to make changes again. That’s clear.”
On Divock Origi
“It was absolutely exceptional to come in and play like that.
“Divock really showed up in training and that’s why I decided to start him in the game.
“He was really focused. He helped us a lot offensively and defensively. Really happy for him.”
On Sadio Mané’s form
“Sadio looks really sharp. The important stuff is the amount of chances he’s getting.
“He’s in a really good moment – physically and mentally.”
On resting Virgil van Dijk
“I’d say it’s a short-term thing.
“We’re still in an extended pre-season for him. I have to be sensible in these moments. We had 3 long-term injuries with Joel (Matip), Joe (Gomez) and Virgil.
“It was the right thing to do.”
