Klopp added: “It is always the same, you look into the eyes of the journalist and see he is not interested what you feel and sometimes that feels not that cool”.
Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah is likely to be rested for the visit of West Bromwich Albion on Wednesday night due to a hamstring complaint.
There was an explanation forthcoming for Salah’s 67th minute substitution, however.
Salah was hauled off during the Merseyside derby and Klopp has revealed this was because of an injury scare.
The Reds’ boss was fuming with referee Craig Pawson’s decision to award a penalty following a Dejan Lovren push on Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
“I will say at the end of the season but now I’m quiet and I keep it for myself! I’ve said it before: you can not play the same 11 players all the time until four of them are injured”. I want to win the game 100 per cent, but on the other side I work with human beings and see them every day.
“I think that bit by bit I’m getting better with that and hopefully that can continue”.
When asked about why he opted to rotate, Klopp said: “I thought before the game, yes”.
“It was nothing. I didn’t say anything I need to take back”.
Klopp acknowledged that Salah, voted the BBC African Footballer of the Year for 2017 on Monday, is “not [injured] at the moment” and hoped that they “took him off early enough”. We have to do it. Klopp, however, is keen to manage his resources with six games coming up in the next 18 days. It is exactly the same. We had 80% possession but it felt like 150% possession in the game. “We spoke about it already and I said he can still sign [a new contract], the only difference from January is that he can also sign for another club, that’s all”.
Throughout his time at Anfield, the Brazilian has often been deployed in a more advanced role – as part of a front three.
“We know Alan Pardew wants to play offensive football but you can not change things over night, the squad is for a specific type of football”.
