Liverpool boss Klopp reveals he was in ICELAND during Van Dijk transfer storm

Date Posted,July 12, 2017

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has broken his silence over the Virgil van Dijk transfer storm – and says he was in Iceland when the news broke.

Southampton filed a complaint to the Premier League earlier this summer after the Reds made contact with the centre-back.

Liverpool were forced to issue a public apology to the south coast club and confirmed they “ended any interest in the player”.

However, despite backing down, the Anfield side still find themselves linked with a world-record bid for the 26-year-old Dutchman.

Following Liverpool’s 4-0 pre-season win over Tranmere Rovers, Klopp finally spoke out on the saga.

“Am I allowed to talk about this?” began Klopp. “No I am not. Pretty much what I could say would be a mistake – not because there’s something open or whatever.

“You or your colleagues wrote about it all a few weeks ago. I was in Iceland by the way when somebody told me this was in the newspapers.

“That’s all I have to say about this. Nothing has happened since then, nothing. All good so far.”
