“There are some things that are setting off alarm bells,” the veteran midfielder said. “I have a good relationship with Jürgen (Klopp). He is very honest with me. I won’t go into details about the discussion because it is a private matter. But it made me know I won’t be playing much. I know there will be new players in my position and if I don’t play. That might be difficult. Especially when I’ve been at a club for a long time. And I have been the captain of the team for a long time. In addition, there is also the England national team and the Euro competition waiting.”
