Liverpool boss reveals he wants Wales international’s future resolved

Posted by

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he wants to sort out the future of Wales international midfielder Joe Allen according to the BBC.

Klopp revealed that the club will find a solution regarding Klopp’s future and underlined that he is an admirer of the midfielder.

“We will find a solution but it’s not done,” said Klopp.

“Obviously Joe Allen is a good player. We never doubted this. He played a good European Championship, like the whole Welsh team.

“We have to make decisions, we have to find solutions. We have to talk to the player, ask the player and think about our situation. That’s how it works.”

The 26-year-old has a year remaining on his contract and put on an impressive display for Wales over the European Championships. So impressive in fact that he was named in UEFA’s official Euro 2016 team of the tournament.

Allen played a key role for the Wales side that reached the semi-final only to be defeated 2-0 by eventual champions Portugal.

Despite playing an important role for Wales this summer Allen made just eight Premier League starts for the Reds last season and has yet to enter talks regarding whether his current deal will be renewed.

The central midfielder joined Liverpool from Swansea City for £15 million in 2012 and has made a total of 7 goals and 5 assists in 123 appearances in all competitions for the Reds.
