“When I heard about it I thought they had made a good signing”
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp
“They were not in their 100 per cent best moment and other clubs would have spent more on him, so I thought, immediately, what a good transfer for them.
“When I heard about it I thought they had made a good signing, because I felt I pretty sure clubs would have paid a lot more for him.
“A lot of people thought ‘Hoffenheim, where is this’, ‘that is a lot of money’.
“So you know what a decent job the scout did, whoever brought him in for that price.”
