Nabil Fekir has blasted both Liverpool and his agent over his failed move to Anfield.
“Lots of lies were told and that affected me,” Fekir told L’Equipe.
“Especially those claimed about my family. It hurt both them and me. Especially when you know that what’s being said is false.
“When you are a good person in life you always end up being happy and at peace, and today I am happy and at peace. Others are not, but let’s not go into detail.
“My knee is good. I had a quick medical check at Clairefontaine, my knee wasn’t even mentioned.
“If my knee had been in such a bad state, why would [Lyon president Jean-Michel] Aulas have made an offer [of a new contract]?”
Fekir continued: “You want the truth? Even I don’t know, I assure you!
“I did my medical and then [Liverpool] decided not to sign me. At some point they wanted to have me believe it was because of my knee, but an excuse needed to be found because the medical tests that I did at Clairefontaine were very clear.
“My knee is perfectly fine and I feel fine. There are no issues at all with my knee.”
