Klopp boss drops Fulham team news hint
Jurgen Klopp insists his Liverpool team selection against Fulham won’t be clouded by the Champions League showdown with RB Leipzig next week.
Speaking at his pre-match press conference on Friday, the Reds boss said:
“We play Fulham and then three days later we play RB Leipzig and we are not in the next round.
“So we cannot think about winning the Champions League now really, in the sense that we have to go through difficult rounds.
“This round is difficult. I have never thought that far [ahead].
“This week we play three games again and lately, this season, we’ve had three days in between.
“So it is Thursday, Sunday, Wednesday which is tough.
“We will see who we can field on Sunday and then make a decision who we can play on Wednesday.
“But it is not that we have given up on the Premier League or whatever. That will never happen.
“There is no team we can play and we lose and people say ‘oh but look at that lineup’.
“Liverpool is too big, too many people are interested.
“We don’t play behind closed doors, really, without cameras and you have to read in the news what the score was.
“It is in front of our people and we feel the responsibility in each game to give our absolute everything to win it.
“When it doesn’t happen and people think it is not enough, it doesn’t change our attitude.
“We try it again. The next time is Sunday.”
