Klopp on Solanke future: ‘We will see what happens’

Jurgen Klopp says Dominic Solanke’s future will sort itself out if he “continues” on his current path with Liverpool.

The Englishman is behind the likes of Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Daniel Sturridge in the pecking order at Anfield and has not been on a Premier League bench this season.

Solanke won his first cap under Gareth Southgate last November against Brazil but his progress could stall if he doesn’t get more playing time soon.

“We will see what happens,” Klopp said when asked about Solanke’s future. “We want to help Dom and he can help us. That’s the target.

“Nobody should worry about the future of English football. This could be the best U21 team ever when you think about who could play for the first-team, like Trent, [Ben] Chilwell, Loftus-Cheek, Rashford.

“It’s a bit difficult [Solanke’s] situation here but if Dom continues like he did so far then he will be fine.

“There’s nothing to say about short or long-term things. He is our player. If I have to decide it will stay like that.”
