Klopp only wants committed players at Liverpool

The German insists he would prefer to sell an unhappy player, no matter how good he is, rather than keep him at the club against his will ahead of a rumoured summer overhaul

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insists he will always look to offload unhappy players rather than keep them at the club against their will, no matter how good they are.

The German is reportedly set to overhaul the squad he inherited from Brendan Rodgers in the summer as he looks to build a team in his own image.

And Klopp even revealed he would consider selling a star player if they were not fully committed to his approach, arguing no player in the world is “unsellable”.

“Everything is okay at the moment but nobody in the world – maybe only Lionel Messi – is unsellable,” Klopp told reporters.

“There is always a situation. I come from a club where the best players are always picked by other teams and in the end you have to accept a few things. You always need to have a Plan B or a Plan C.

“If a player comes to me and says he doesn’t feel comfortable and wants to leave because of our style of play or because he can make more money elsewhere, then you always have to start thinking. That’s all I can say on this.

“[Philippe] Coutinho, [Roberto] Firmino, so many players are very special. You could go through the whole squad. But if a player wants to go to another club then I’d always be open to it because I don’t want to have a player in my squad who doesn’t want to be in the squad. 

“These are problems you don’t need during a season. A player is never good enough for you to have to cope with problems like that for an entire year.”

One first-team player who could be set to leave Anfield once the season ends is club captain Jordan Henderson, according to the Mail.
