Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has moved to dismiss reports that he had fallen out with Jordon Ibe after restoring the youngster to the first team in Sunday’s win over Bournemouth.

The 20-year-old winger has made 36 appearances for the Reds this season, but had only featured for three minutes since February prior to starting the 2-1 victory at the Vitality Stadium.

As The Express reports, academy graduate Ibe deleted any reference to Liverpool on his social media accounts after being left out of the matchday squad to face Stoke City last weekend.

But Klopp has rubbished rumours that there were problems between he and Ibe, and praised the youngster for his performance against the Cherries as he played a role in both Liverpool goals.

“I heard from somewhere that Jordon has some problems with me or something?” Klopp is quoted by The Express as saying. “Absolutely not.

“He’s still a brilliant, big, big talent which is very good for English football. He did well today with the pass for the first goal, and the cross for the second. I was very happy.”

Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge scored the goals as a Liverpool team showing 10 changes from the epic triumph over Borussia Dortmund secured a fifth win in seven league matches.
