Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp has insisted that he "never had a problem" with German midfielder Emre Can after he left the club for Juventus on a free transfer earlier this summer.

Can was offered a new contract to stay at Anfield beyond this summer, but he declined and instead opted to leave Merseyside to pass the Serie A giants.

Klopp insists that he does not harbor bad feelings towards his compatriot and believes that he will shine in his new surroundings with Cristiano Ronaldo and Co.

"We always had and still have a good relationship," Klopp told Liverpool Echo.

"I have no problem with a player leaving, the only problem I had for the club was that I wanted to get some money:" Sign a new contract and then we will sell you! "But that was not really realistic.

"There was never a problem between Emre and me.

& # 39; Emre has 24 now. Playing in another country can be a goal of life: "I've spent four years in England, now I want to go elsewhere."

& # 39; Why not? He is a great player and has gone to an elite club, everything is fine. "

Klopp also revealed that he knew that Can would leave months before his move was officially announced and that knowledge allowed him to plan for this season.

Brazilian midfielder Fabinho joined the club for £ 44 million in May, while the Reds also strengthened in the midfielder after the arrival of Naby Keita.

"We knew very early on that it was very likely that he would leave and we could plan," Klopp added.

& # 39; There was nothing to say about it during the season. If I had told people in March & # 39; Yes, it will go 100% & # 39 ;, immediately people would have thought that I would not give everything else.

"I knew Emre would give everything, he was desperate to play in the last games, it was only possible in the last but not in the best form due to the injury.

"He is now in Turin, we are here and everything is fine".
