Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has told Real Madrid that he is not “too loyal” to players and will do what he feels is right for Liverpool in the transfer market this summer.

Klopp said: “I think we are all responsible for what happens with us Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema.”

Klopp says any player who feels he is entitled to a place at Liverpool should think again.

Klopp said: “If they [the players] feel they are entitled to a place in the team, they have to think again. I think we have enough quality and you always have to make decisions.

“I don’t think I am too loyal but if someone thinks that, it’s their opinion – but it’s not mine.”

The Reds boss accepts his side has underperformed this season and accepts blame for that.

“We have underperformed,” Klopp said. “It is not about being too loyal or not loyal enough — it is just about having the right decision and making the best out of that situation.

“If I was in charge of this club and we had underperformed for five years, I would ask myself: ‘Am I doing something wrong?’ But we are still in a good way.”

Klopp insists he will not be swayed by personal relationships when it comes to making decisions on transfers this summer, despite the fact that many of his current squad grew up together at Mainz 05 before coming together at Liverpool seven years ago.

Klopp said he would always put his club first.

Jurgen Klopp has insisted he will not be swayed by personal relationships when it comes to transfers this summer.

The Liverpool boss said: “I’m not too loyal, but I am loyal. I want to do what is right for the club and if someone thinks differently then we have a problem.”

Klopp added: “There are always things that happen around us on a daily basis and it’s difficult because sometimes people want to keep their jobs or whatever. You need to make decisions that are right for you as well.”

Conclusion

Klopp said he would always put his club first.

“I am not too loyal, I am not too clever, but I have this one little problem: I always try to do what is right for the club, and if it doesn’t work, then it’s my fault,” Klopp said.
