Jurgen Klopp

However, manager Jurgen Klopp has insisted that Van Dijk alone would not be the answer to his team's struggles at the back. We watched all of them 500 million times.

'It is not that we ignore it.

When Klopp was asked why he didn't have a list of alternative targets, he said: "I said if there would have been a solution out there we would have done it".

Klopp also dismissed suggestions he is too lenient towards players who have made costly errors during matches.

This resulted in Liverpool ending all negotiations with Southampton, and despite many Liverpool fans urging their club to try and get a deal done, Klopp expressed his content with the options he had at his disposal in the centre of defence.

"I believe in trust".

Advanced Data for US Retail Sales Indicate Softening in August
Analysts said the retail sales report showed some of the effects of Hurricane Harvey, which hit Texas in the last week of August. Survey evidence suggests solid confidence among consumers which should underpin spending over the next few months.

Liverpool's only defensive addition in the summer was left-back Andrew Robertson, though, as not only did they fail to secure Van Dijk, they did not appear to consider alternatives to him at centre-back. "That's how I understand life", he explained. Sometimes [there are] goals I'm angry about, and it's not the first one.

"You know our world is big business these days and around him there is a lot of interest but now we have to leave that aside", the Argentine, in his first season in charge, said.

'The captain is something the team-mates decide and something you have to deserve, ' Pellegrino said.

"Let's say when I came here we started new and now we have this team. We played good, were fluent with seven changes, but only one goal", added Klopp, who recalled that last season Burnley beat them 2-0 at Turf Moor. You perform really well boys, credit.

Liverpool's coach is evidently irritated that the praise for his team's excellence in attack - the team is unrecognisable offensively from that which he took over - is overshadowed by the gripes with back four issues pre-dating his arrival at Anfield.
