Liverpool's quiet window down to forward planning in summer - Klopp

Liverpool's quiet window down to forward planning in summer - Klopp

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp discussed Mohamed Salah's possible departure from Merseyside in the upcoming summer transfer window.

Following Sunday's 2-2 draw at the Montgomery Waters Meadow, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp controversially said none of his first-team squad would be involved in the rematch, which comes in the middle of the first week of Liverpool's winter break.

Critchley took charge of a young Liverpool side in their League Cup defeat by Aston Villa when the first-team were in Qatar for the Club World Cup.

Klopp said: "The mid-season break is now something that has to be settled for the next years and all the different parties need to find a solution, so it will not be like this year again, where it's possible that you have one [a break], but you may not".

"As long as I don't hear anything and I don't ask the players what they think of next season or in two years, for me, it looks like [he will stay]".

If people think that I'm lazy because I'm not here [for the match], I can not change that.

Salah played 32 games with Liverpool this season where he netted 16 goals and registered nine assists across all competitions.

"I mean, play whatever team you want, but you've got to be there to support your players".

"If we react how we always react and find a way to do it, then nothing will change", Klopp said.

Before the replay was confirmed, Liverpool's last game before the break was due to be against Southampton on February 1, with a rest period of two weeks before their next game on February 15, against Norwich. Of course I could, but that's again a complete misunderstanding of managing and coaching.

"I don't know who was there [at the FA meeting to discuss the mid-season break], I know the FA said all the clubs agreed, but no sports-responsible people were there".

Salah was instrumental in the Reds' win over West Ham on Wednesday where he scored once, from the penalty spot, and registered the assist for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to slot home and secure a 2-0 win.

It looks like Klopp won't back down on the matter, but is effectively boycotting a replay allowed?
