Liverpool Newcomer Looks Good in Training
The German manager then discussed Ozan Kabak’s talents and how he has done in training.
“But Ozan looked good in training, the boys got used to each other. Of course we know today is a proper test, against Barnes, Vardy, Maddison, all these kind of things, so it will be tricky. But we think we are prepared. It’s not that there is a difference between Premier League and Bundesliga, because in the Bundesliga you play against top, top, top strikers; it’s more than you are in a new team. That makes a difference.”Jurgen Klopp on Ozan Kabak playing against Leicester
Klopp stated that Kabak should be much more comfotable playing in the Liverpool squad compared to Schalke.
“Defending is a common thing, but you do not defend alone and you have to get used to each other. That’s what we tried to do in the last few sessions and hopefully it will work.”Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp on football being a team game
