“It’s difficult to see Taki leave, but it’s a great move for him and he really deserves it,” Klopp said.
“An outstanding professional; super, talented player. As a person, she is full of warmth and makes everyone feel positive. [Pemain] A dream for a manager, to be honest.”
Klopp himself emphasized that the recruitment of Taki was not a failure. “I’m sure there will be people who think it doesn’t work. Those who think this is wrong. I don’t accept that.”
“His contribution far exceeds the chances we can give, in terms of the early games. He makes us better every day he is with us – not only in the games he plays but every session in training. Perfect attitude, winning mentality.”
