Klopp says Mané contract shows top players think Liverpool can win trophies

At this stage previous year, Liverpool had already lost two league games and were fifth in the standings, but a string of assured defensive displays have ensured they are one of three clubs still unbeaten along with Manchester City and Chelsea.

The 21-year-old former Chelsea player has yet to make an appearance for Liverpool this season and is understood to be frustrated by the lack of opportunity, with Steven Gerrard apparently interested in taking him to Rangers on loan in January. He's settling, he played three of the last four, he did well. He played, he did well. "It's the world we are in where people don't play for a few games and they are open for a transfer". Now the most intense period of the year is coming up.

"And of course he will not leave. That would be completely insane. he doesn't want [to leave]". "We are not involved in that".

"This is a big boost for everyone and another demonstration of how the players we have at this club are committed, not just to our present but our future also", said Reds manager Klopp.

"It's not that I say to him: 'Good morning Sadio, you are world class, ' but it is obvious sometimes that he is not aware of that", Klopp said at a news conference.

The England U21 forward starred for his country during the worldwide break and Klopp is aware that interest may be shown in a player who finds himself down the attacking pecking order.

The Hornets suffered a loss and were held to a draw in their last two outings in the Premier League against strugglers Newcastle United and Southampton, respectively, to put a halt to their flying start to the season.

'I don't know, I can not say actually, anything about the case.

Contrast that to the end of Klopp's second season when his team lined up against Real in the final of the competition and were unfortunate not to take more away.

Quizzed on whether Solanke would benefit more from training at Liverpool or playing on loan elsewhere, Klopp added: "At the moment there is no alternative. We want to help Dom so he can help us and that is the target".
