Klopp takes a vow of silence over Liverpool's top targets

15 July 2017

"I can't say anything", said Klopp after the 1-1 friendly draw with Wigan on Friday in which Salah scored in his first appearance.

Wigan took the lead in the 21st minute when attacker Alex Gilbey fired low into the bottom corner of the goal past Simon Mignolet in the Reds goal. Klopp explained: "He had absolutely no idea how we defend usually, so he was not really involved in this and was like 'oh my god'".

"But you could tell he is used to a completely different way of defending".

"And the goal was maybe the easiest situation in the game, but they played a few wonderful pieces of football: Roberto, Phil, Adam, Gini in the No. 6 position was good". And after the game Klopp admitted they had thrown the new arrival into the deep end and it showed with how he defended during his 45 minutes on the field.

The Reds have so far signed Mohamed Salah from Roma and Dominic Solanke after his contract expired at Chelsea, but are interested in RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita and Hull left-back Andrew Robertson.

In-between his electric run and getting on the scoresheet, the 25-year-old provided evidence of the attributes Jurgen Klopp wanted in a wide forward: excellent anticipation, consistent movement, flexibility, the ability to make a difference in the final third, and a strong appetite to win back possession.

"If whatever would say here would change anything in a positive way, I would".

"That's quite hard. We should've given the list on July 8 but I couldn't because I didn't know who was injured and who was not when we fly, so tonight I'll make the decision". It is not important what I say. No.
