"The only thing I can say is he had a concussion in the game." said Klopp. We don't think about that anymore and we start completely new.

The Reds kick off their Premier League season with a home game against West Ham United on the 12th of August, and all eyes will be pinned on the new boys to see how they get on.

I thought it was too late, you can not check that.

"Now people could think for us it is the explanation - and for me it is 100 per cent the explanation and that's all".

'He was influenced by that knock, that is 100 per cent.

Liverpool will start their pre-season when they face Chester on Saturday, July 7, before facing Tranmere Rovers, Bury, and Blackburn Rovers on the 11th, 14th, and 19th of July. What the rest of the world is making of it, I don't care.

A new centre-back appears to be on the agenda as Dejan Lovren endured an inconsistent campaign last season and he could face competition from one of his Croatian global team-mates at Anfield next year.

But Croatia made it 1-1 just eight minutes later thanks to a headed goal from striker Andrej Kramaric. I was concentrating throughout the match, but after that penalty it came bursting out of me".


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane will be included in the club's pre-season tour in the USA.

'I'm not sure if I should have expected something different but it was nice, absolutely nice, ' he said following Liverpool's win. "I'm a lot of things but not blind, so that means I see what they offer - and if someone offers something special then I will realise it and we will make decisions about it".

"I think the key is does Jurgen think he has the mental strength to bounce back?"

When I was doing the medical exams I couldn't stop asking people 'When does it finally become official?' You don't sign for one of the biggest clubs in the world every day you know!

Klopp, who will be under pressure to deliver some silverware this season after taking Liverpool to three finals and losing all of them, says it took a phone call from German legend Franz Beckenbauer - who spoke to "Germany's most famous doctor" - to convince him it had been concussion.

But there was to be no first goal for marquee signings Fabinho and Keita, who played a half each following their big-money arrivals from Monaco and RB Leipzig respectively.

"I needed a few days, to be honest, to accept the fact and deal with the situation [of losing the final]".
