Jurgen Klopp Finally Speaks About Karius' Champions League Final Concussion

It remains to be seen whether Leverkusen will sell as Brandt still has three years left to run on his current contract and is a key player for them but £53m might be too good an offer to turn down if Liverpool put it on the table.

'Now people could think for us it is the explanation - and for me it is 100 per cent the explanation and that's all'. So, from this point of view, from my side everything is fine. "We do not use it as an excuse.Now people could think for us it is the explanation - and for me it is 100 per cent the explanation and that's all".

"I am concentrating on doing well every day in training and hoping that first team opportunities will come".

Karius was criticised by some Liverpool fans this week after posting what appeared to be a professionally shot and edited video of his time on holiday in Los Angeles.

A further six caps followed but now a Championship loan could be in the offing for Woodburn, however Klopp wants to assess his progress and needs some of his younger players during pre-season while some of the club's worldwide stars recover from World Cup duty.

"Karius, to be fair to him, was getting stronger and stronger as the season when on", said the 38-year-old Rangers manager.

Speaking to the club's website, Klopp revealed that Franz Beckenbauer phoned him to say that Karius had suffered a concussion in the clash with Ramos. Is he capable of parking that up, moving on and drawing from the experience? I told him immediately, OK. If you make a mistake in a Champions League final, it's a mistake you can not change anymore, even if you want to - and we all want to.

The Reds have started their pre-season preparations early as they look to steal a march on their Premier League rivals.

"I am delighted with where Liverpool are right now".

"He is young so we don't want to bin a good goalkeeper because he does have the potential to be very good".

'I'm not sure if I should have expected something different but it was nice, absolutely nice, ' he said following Liverpool's win.

"Of course, they then have to do a lot of fitness work in the U.S. and we will see when they can play or whatever".
