Christian Pulisic

Jurgen Klopp confirmed his admiration of Borussia Dortmund star Christian Pulisic but denies plans of making a move for the teenage sensation.

The American prodigy has quickly become the face of the US national team and has been making waves in the Bundesliga.

Given that Klopp was in charge of Dortmund while Pulisic came through the youth ranks, the winger has regularly been linked with a move to Anfield since the German took over in Merseyside.

The Liverpool boss however believes a transfer away from Dortmund at this time would be a premature move for the budding star.

“He has a contract at Dortmund, no? That’s the first problem,” Klopp told a press conference

“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.”
