Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp talks possible permanent transfer for 'incredible' Ozan Kabak


Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed that the club are yet to decide whether they will make Ozan Kabak’s loan move a permanent one this summer. Kabak joined on loan from Schalke midway through the season as injury cover, with an £18m option to buy inserted into the deal.

The 21-year-old has made 13 appearances for the Reds in all competitions and, despite labelling him “absolutely incredible”, Klopp has said Liverpool will only make a decision on Kabak’s future once the season has come to an end.

“Ozan was absolutely incredible, he did a great job,” Klopp said. “Not to forget he is a young, young boy with incredible experience already.

“He has been with different clubs, moved early from Turkey to Germany and played at two big clubs in Germany in difficult situations which were obviously not his fault, we could all see that when he arrived here.

“Yes, he took a little bit of time to adapt but he did super things for us. I don’t know how many games out but against Leipzig [in the Champions League] he was incredible, we knew how good Leipzig could be.

“Every moment, every single minute, I am proud. I try to give my best so far. I did my job.

“We will see what is going to happen next season, but whatever it is I have really enjoyed it and appreciate what everyone has done for me.

“I think yes. Of course I am a young player, I could do some things better, but I have a long way to go in my career and I can be a better player.

“With the better players I train hard and with the guys who are here like Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip, Joe Gomez.

“They are very good centre-backs and if I train with them and a manager like Jurgen Klopp I can be better. So far I tried to give my best. I am pleased with my performances so far.

“These five months have been very valuable for my career, my personality, I have met with very good people, very good footballers, I have worked with a manager like Jurgen.

“Now I have a lot of experience with these stars. I would say they are stars. There are a lot of stars on our team.

“Even to train with them makes you better. You progress with your game I think even in training. Yes, these five months have been very good for me I think regardless of whether I stay or not.”
