Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp named Manager of the Month for September

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been named the Premier League Manager Of The Month for September.

Klopp, though, has no doubt Rooney remains a potent force despite a run of only one goal in 13 matches across all competitions this season.

The Liverpool manager told his pre-match press conference that both would be monitored and he had not yet made a decision on their availability.

"A situation like this can happen in a long career".

The fact Klopp spotted Mane's talents during his time at Red Bull Salzburg also shows the kind of eye he has for quality players, too, and the early signs suggest the Senegalese star will certainly be a major asset. "I can promise that before we sign a player who isn't a lot better than what we already have, we will always use our own boys". Roberto could to do a little bit more in the last session, Phil played almost two complete games so he's had only recovery after a long, long flight even though the club did everything to bring them as comfortable as possible back to England. I would never say Boxing Day is not a good idea because I love it.

"[They are] not too bad but it's a question of perspective, I would say", Klopp said, waxing philosophical.

The home match against City is now at 17:30 GMT on 31 December - and kick-off at Sunderland is 15:00 on 2 January.

As the Merseyside club prepares for the visit of fellow title contenders Manchester United to Anfield on Monday night, the England midfielder said there had been no change in his approach since the German's appointment.

"Now having a matchday with two days in between".

'I can not think the same things about Wayne Rooney, ' said Klopp, when asked if he felt that England captain's best days were behind him. Then this Dutch guy, the amusing athletic coach [Raymond Verheijen] says "training is not too good"... We all know about the issues obviously from Gini and Adam, but both not ruled out for Monday I would say.

The German added: "Everybody asks why England aren't too successful in big tournaments. Ask what other big countries are doing at this time of year and they have their legs on the sofa and are watching English football".

In response to Klopp's comments, Verheijen, who despite his long-time Twitter picture is not actually an egg, tweeted the following.

Verheijen tweeted: "It will be interesting to keep an eye on Liverpool in the upcoming weeks as they are about to hit an injury crisis under new manager Klopp".

"It's a massive game, especially since we've lost the last four league games against them".

"The more you play for in these games and the more interest there is, the more hard they are but the more excited people are".
