Speaking in a pre-match press conference ahead of Liverpool’s clash with Everton this evening, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp addressed long-time target Timo Werner signing for Chelsea – with plenty of supporters reacting to his verdict in response. 

Indeed, flocking to Klopp quotes relayed by reliable correspondent James Pearce on Twitter, many Liverpool fans have expressed their mixed range of opinions surrounding Werner’s move to west London – coming after the manager simply asked: “”Why should I talk about a transfer of Chelsea? He’s a really good football player. That’s it.”

The Germany international signed for Frank Lampard’s side after being touted with a move to Anfield for weeks, putting pen-to-paper on a five-year-deal worth £9 million-per-season after Chelsea triggered his £45 million release clause.
