But the Catalan also suggested the youngster's advisors played a key role in a bitter parting of the ways. "I don't think there is another team in the world attacking in this way with so many players capable of launching moves in an instant". Before he went to Brazil he couldn't train for three weeks. We have seven games in three weeks.
Klopp expressed his delight at having finally completed the move but said he would have preferred to have signed the Guinea worldwide for 2017-18, per Doyle: "I have lots of contacts in Germany, and I've never had so many congratulations than after we signed him".
Some of Manchester City and Liverpool's recent meetings have been fantastic and I'm expecting nothing different from this one.
He said that it would be "kind of accepting injuries" if he was to "use a player all the time", calling upon the Reds instead to "adapt to this situation" and "be ready for each game".
"I chose to leave him out of the squad for City so we can use these four or five days for real and proper training", he added. That is why we offered him the best contract possible to continue with us but he made a decision to move on and with that we can not fight.
"I know him from Barcelona".
"Now, we have a wonderful player in our squad who wants to get fit and wants to play for this club". Ok.so, go. So nothing to say.
If he opts to revert to a three-man defence, Eliaquim Mangala or Tosin Adarabioyo, the 19-year-old, could play their first games under Guardiola.
"It's disappointing because he has been here since a long time ago, we have tried to build him up and say maybe in one or two years he might play". And he played twice, I think about 15 or 20 minutes.
"I love the phrase "Prince of Wales", I'm not sure he likes it too much!"
"The schedule is going to be relentless, it's going to be continuous midweek and weekend games", he told Liverpool's official site.
Victory for either will see them, albeit briefly, head to the top of the table - and put out a clear message to the rest of the challengers that they mean business.
