Jurgen Klopp accepted that anything he said about Kylian Mbappe or Jadon Sancho would be perceived in a different light by the media.
Liverpool have been heavily linked with the sensational duo who has taken European football by storm over the past few seasons.
Klopp’s men have clinched the Champions League title and are on their way to grab the Premier League title as well this season. However, that has not stopped questions about the lack of support behind his star front three. Many doubt their effectiveness as they edge closer towards turning 30.
Klopp simply shut down all the speculation, voicing just how ridiculous all those claims are. “Sadio Mane is young enough and Mo Salah is young enough to be in that group for the next few years,” he said. “I am completely happy with the boys that I have, but I never thought about the others.
“When I am at a club then I work with the players I have, I don’t dream about other players. If we can get one of them in the future, we will see, but we will make the best of the situation we have.”
When asked about Sancho and Mbappe specifically, the German boss said, “Look, I cannot answer those kinds of questions without creating headlines the next day, I know that’s what I don’t want to do. I love them all and there’s a few more players out there. They are all exceptional players.
“The players they are now because of their own attitude, because of their skills and all that stuff. I love watching them but I have no problem that I never trained one of them.”
