Liverpool v Porto: What has been said?

Klopp will make player welfare top priority heading into the Champions League dead rubber at home to Porto but believes he can still select a side which respects the competition.

“We always respect the competition but we have to think about ourselves and our schedule and the situation of our players first,” he said.

“In this time of the season, the medical department has a big hand in line-ups.

“It’s really easy to sit there, all the people who judge us, and say ‘leave him out, leave him out, leave him out’.

“If we leave them all out and play with a team that is not a Champions League team – we don’t have enough players for that, by the way – then nobody can get injured.

“We have to line up a team who has a chance to win a football game. The Diogo situation was very unlucky. I hated it, that I made the decision.

“But would I have made the decision the same again? That’s the only question I have to answer. Yes, I would have again, because you need stability.

“We cannot play football games with this line-up, then next a game line-up which has no chance to win a game, then bring them back again.

“Players need rhythm, all these kinds of things. Do I make the decision because I don’t care who gets injured in the line-up tomorrow?

“No, I can’t and I will not. These things happen in football. Hopefully nothing happens tomorrow.”
