Jurgen Klopp Finally Speaks About Karius' Champions League Final Concussion

Loris Karius of Liverpool looks dejected following his sides defeat in the UEFA Champions League Final between Real Madrid and Liverpool at NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium

Doubles from Harry Wilson and Daniel Sturridge, along with further strikes from James Milner, Ryan Kent and Danny Ings, saw the Merseysiders comfortably dispose of the National League North outfit.

Thomas Tuchel's side must sell around £50m worth of talent to avoid paying a substantial fine for breaching UEFA regulations.

Liverpool are ready to launch a £53m bid to sign Bayer Leverkusen attacker Julian Brandt as Jurgen Klopp looks to land his third summer signing, according to reports via the Mirror. I told him immediately, OK. I am sure the other two or three targets they are after will help them be stronger and make the squad stronger and hopefully they can have a right good go at it.

"They come back before the tour to America - the 20th, I think. 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". "We started playing football when he was involved".

Liverpool's game against Tranmere was moved to avoid a clash with the World Cup semi-final, and as a result it is unclear whether they will feature tomorrow night at Prenton Park.

"I still think they need another centre-back even though Lovren has improved since Van Dijk came in", Barnes told Bonus Code Bets. But now I know a concussion isn't coming and going in a day - if you have one, you see it days later.

It later emerged that the former Mainz man had "26 out of 30 markers" for a concussion after undergoing tests, resulting from collision with Real skipper Sergio Ramos earlier in the game.

"They have a terrific manager leading the charge and they have started making improvements and as a fan and an ex-player it is great to see". Still, overcoming such a devastating game in Kiev will be a massive challenge for the stopper, whether his performance was hindered by concussion or not.

Liverpool's new signings made their debuts yesterday as the Reds hammered Chester 7-0 in their first pre-season friendly.

"The easy thing to do is put a cross through his name and bin him but you have to remember he took Liverpool to the Champions League final".
