"There's no future decision to work with Klopp. I get on very well with him, we're in contact but there's no job opportunity there at the moment. There's nothing for me to say on the matter really, only that I'm a big fan of him and I hope that he brings success back to Liverpool next season and I'll be supporting him from over here."
