Jurgen Klopp admits he would like to bring Christian Pulisic to Liverpool and refused to rule out a future move - but concedes he is at the right club to continue developing with Borussia Dortmund.
"I like Christian, I've known him since he was a kid. He's still not really old, he’s a fantastic player, and it’s deserved people think highly of him in America. In Germany it’s the same. If he wants to play in England or whatever one day then for sure he has the chance to do so but he’s at a really good club for his development at this moment. It's really good to be at a club where they know him already.
"He had not his best season last year but he was still a decisive player but it’s important in that age group that there’s no rush. He still has 14 or 15 years to play in his career and that’s good and he wants to be the best Pulisic he can be. For this, there is still space for development.
If - at one point - he will join us, I don't know.
I like him, it's not that that could be the problem, but we respect contracts still and there’s no market I know about at the moment. We did our business and Dortmund are doing theirs. All good." _______
Speaking on Liverpool's interest two summers ago, Pulisic insisted he wasn't thinking about a transfer to Anfield.
I have respect for Klopp and I know him – he was very welcoming to me here – but I was never really thinking about going to Liverpool,” Pulisic said in March 2017.
Dortmund have given me everything. If I work very hard here I will play and I love this club.”
