Now, during pre-season, the France international has been sent home by the Reds boss for unprofessional behaviour.“He missed the departure of the plane, he missed a session and then was late for a meal,” the German told reporters.“I have to build a group here, I have to start anew, so I thought it maybe made sense that he flew home to Liverpool and after eight days, when we come back, we can talk about it.”Klopp did, however, mention that the 26-year-old wouldn’t be fined.“I am not interested in the money of the players. Not often in my life have I had to fine anybody, because I want that we learn together to do the right thing.“Always it is the same with every group. I don’t like fining.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
