Jurgen Klopp addresses Liverpool left-back transfer rumours

Speaking ahead of his side’s clash with Burnley on Saturday, the German manager addressed defender Alberto Moreno’s poor performance against Arsenal when the left-back gave away a penalty in the first half and was at fault for the Gunners’ first goal.

But Klopp was quick to shut down speculation over any potential move for a new left-back.

He said: “If someone plays not too good then we talk about it in the press conference. That’s cool.

“He was involved in a penalty situation, right? That’s something we spoke about. We’ve spoken about it.

“In my opinion, we could have avoided this situation and yes Alberto could have done better, that’s right. But I don’t understand what we are talking about.

“We are talking about Alberto Moreno because he didn’t defend so well against Arsenal? I don’t understand the conversation, maybe I should read more newspapers.

“The world is not satisfied with our left back or what?”

Utility man James Milner is expected to replace Moreno in defence against Burnley after he featured there in pre-season.

And Liverpool have been linked with Holland international Bruno Martins Indi as a potential signing at left-back.

But by the sounds of it, Klopp isn’t keen to bow to public pressure and sign a new player after one game.
