Jurgen Klopp drops transfer hint to Liverpool fans after January window closes

Jurgen Klopp rested Virgil van Dijk for the game against Huddersfield

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed the reason why he didn't spend any of Philippe Coutinho's £145million transfer fee following the Brazilian's move to Barcelona.

The 26-year-old Dutch defender, who desperately wanted to join Liverpool in the summer, signed from Southampton at the beginning of January.

"Our defending style is different to Southampton and Holland, which is why it makes sense to get used to it".

While record-signing Van Dijk is still working his way back to full fitness, Clyne is still yet to feature for Liverpool this term after suffering a back injury during pre-season in July.

"Against Everton he was outstanding, against Swansea he was good and he was involved in the biggest chances we had". He declared: "There's a lot to do, a lot to work on, but the start is absolutely good".

"Yes, we could have done something", he told reporters, as quoted from Goal.

Lallana has missed Liverpool's last two matches with a muscular injury and has made just seven appearances this season, having sustained a long-term thigh injury in preseason.

Battle for Azeroth pre-purchase is live
World of Warcraft's next big expansion, Battle for Azeroth , is set to launch this Summer, Blizzard has revealed. Everyone who pre-buys Battle for Azeroth will also receive in-game items for WoW and other Blizzard games.

Klopp said that Van Dijk has not had a "consistent season" so far this season and added that he has not known him "long enough" to know whether he is capable of playing on Saturday and then Tuesday.

Now, one Liverpool legend has slammed the boss.

"I spoke to him and he expected it".

"We can take confidence from the United win and this is the performance we need to play against the big teams home and away". It would be better if he could play all the time but you cannot train in a Premier League match.

Liverpool are third in the league with 50 points from 25 games, 18 points behind runaway league leaders Manchester City.

Liverpool host Tottenham this weekend with a dual objective: to propel themselves further away from their opponents in the top-four chase and make amends for their humiliation in the reverse fixture.
