“You want that”-Jurgen Klopp blast journalist for Alexander-Arnold question
Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp spoke to the media on Friday afternoon ahead of Liverpool’s next match.
The Reds will tackle Brighton on Saturday afternoon at Anfield.
Ahead of the match, Jurgen Klopp discussed a number of topics in his press conference, including Trent Alexander-Arnold not being used by England in the September break.
When asked about the subject, though, Klopp was his usual angry manner.
“Do we really want to open this box? You are English journalists and we cannot discuss selections until the World Cup starts,” he said. “This is why you make massive things of this.”
“My honest opinion would create headlines. You want that? It would maybe help Germany but it wouldn’t help England. I have a lot of things to say but I don’t think it makes sense. We are fine here, it’s completely different. I see Trent differently, that’s clear.
“People talk about him not being a good defender, that’s not true, he is a good defender, he doesn’t always defend good, that’s true. He’s 23. We’re working on it.
“Whatever team I would have at the moment, I would pick Trent. He is exceptional.
“England are blessed with players in this position. Reece James can play 3 at the back, did that well for Chelsea. It’s Gareth’s decision. He made it. I see it different. Doesn’t mean right/wrong.
“Trent came back not in a party mood but he accepts the manager’s decision because he is extremely bright. he added
“The manager decides and more often than not here it is the case he is picked. It’s clear, he’s a world-class player”.
Liverpool would need to pick up a win against Brighton this weekend, as they look to rejuvenate their woeful start to the season.
