Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed why he decided to omit Jordan Henderson from his Liverpool side yesterday.
Henderson was a notable omission from Klopp’s team that beat German side Karlsruher 4-2 in a preseason game on Wednesday.
The news later broke during the match that the Reds had agreed a fee to sell him to Saudi Arabian club Al Ettifaq.
When asked who made the decision for Henderson not to play, Klopp said: “There’s actually nothing to say. As long as things are not really finally decided, we don’t have to talk about it. There will be a moment where we probably have to talk about it, but it’s not now.
“I don’t know that anything is decided, which means nothing to say at the moment. But that’s even better for you because you can speculate, which is much more fun! If I say something then it’s finished!
“In the end, all of these decisions are made by me. And because I respect the players a lot, it’s usually (with their) consent. It was in this case, and it is all fine.”
