Liverpool 'really care' about Duncan, says Klopp

In football, sometimes contract things can be a problem. That's a normal situation in all age groups.

"But with young players we are especially sensitive". If I say more it will only create headlines and no one needs to read headlines. We have to do the right things, all the different parties.

Duncan, who moved to Liverpool previous year for a compensation fee of £200,000 having been with Manchester City since the age of 11, is expected to spend a full season with Neil Critchley's under-23s side this season having already made three appearances in Premier League 2 and the Checkatrade Trophy this month.

Pressed on how he felt to hear the accusations against Liverpool's handling of young players, he added: "A general thing, nothing to do with Bobby Duncan, is the young players have all the benefits".

"The big problem they could have is they lose patience because life is like this".

The 27-year-old has now opted to take a step back from global football, at least temporarily, in order to focus on winning his place back in the Reds team. It is possible but mostly it is really about patience. That's how it is. Not waiting for things, being ready for making all the steps you need to do: "training hard, playing at the next level, doing what the coach is telling you and everything is fine".

Liverpool have won their opening three Premier League matches and this weekend take on Burnley at Turf Moor, where Xherdan Shaqiri is once again expected to be part of the matchday squad.

Earlier today, Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp insisted that Shaqiri would be needed at Anfield this season despite only featuring once for the Reds so far.

"Shaq is training well", he said.

Duncan scored 32 objectives for Liverpool's under-18s final season after becoming a member of from Manchester Metropolis and was on course in opposition to Tranmere in a pre-season pleasant, however is considered annoyed at a scarcity of first-team alternatives. You can talk about all the skilled young players who are around Liverpool, Man City, Man United - wow. I don't think so.

"He is in a good mood and training hard, doing what he has to do and is ready for the moment when he has to help the team on the pitch". "He knows that 100 per cent".
