Solanke's Liverpool exit the right call, claims Klopp

Solanke's Liverpool exit the right call, claims Klopp

"I am just looking to play and go step by step". "Over the past few years, they have been really good in the Premier League and had some good positional finishes as well".

Solanke won the Golden Ball as player of the tournament when England won the Under-20 World Cup in 2017, exploits that preceded his move from Chelsea to Liverpool. "Football is a business obviously on one hand, but on the other hand we have to care about people and we have to care about their situation", he said.

"No disrespect to anyone, but I hope we get a home draw, and against a team that's not in the Premier League!"

"I lost out on a couple of full-backs and a striker, so I'm doubly disappointed".

It will take some time though before signing from Liverpool could feature for his new club as manager Eddie Howe has revealed that Solanke could be out until February with a hamstring injury.

"Especially not at that age group".

Speaking to TalkSport's Matchday Live, the Bluebirds boss said he had been told the 27-year-old was joining only to discover on television that he had opted for Bournemouth instead.

MI family of 5 identified in fatal crash
The northbound lanes near the crash were closed for several hours during the clean-up and investigation, but have since reopened. According to a release from the Lexington Police Department, the crash happened around 2:30 a.m. off I-75 near mile marker 107.


The defender will be unavailable for Liverpool's FA Cup third round tie at Wolves, where Klopp is expected rotate heavily, with Simon Mignolet set to start in goal.

"I've spoken to the manager and we've talked about what we can achieve for the remainder of the season".

"With Clyney, having an option like him is good", Klopp added. Bournemouth are about to allow forward Jermain Defoe to join Scottish Premiership side Rangers.

Both players had been on the fringes of the squad this season, with Solanke not featuring at all and Clyne only making a handful of appearances of late.

"The deal has been a good one from our perspective".

"I still think it's a great competition, it's very important to us and that's why I'm so delighted we were able to make changes and still win", said Hughton.
