Awoniyi reveals what Klopp told him before Liverpool sold him to Union Berlin

Awoniyi reveals what Klopp told him

Nigerian striker, Taiwo Awoniyi, has given details of his conversation with Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp, before he sealed a permanent move to Union Berlin.

Awoniyi reveals Klopp encouraged him to join the German club, as they had showed a big interest in landing him.

Union Berlin paid a club-record transfer fee to acquire their top transfer target.

“He (Klopp) said it was a good thing because he felt like everyone at Union wanted to sign me at the club.

“He said it was the most important thing for a young player,” Awoniyi told Kicker.

Awoniyi signed for Liverpool after helping Nigeria win the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup.

However, he never played a single competitive game for the Reds, going out on loan to seven different clubs in six years.
