Jurgen Klopp speaks out on row between Liverpool and Bobby Duncan

Duncan's agent, Saif Rubie, claimed Liverpool were keeping the 18-year-old forward against his will and said he missed Monday's U23 game against Southampton due to "deep mental issues with all the stress" from the club.

Rubie wrote that Duncan missed the Liverpool Below-23 sport in opposition to Southampton on Monday as a effect of "deep mental health issues" due to the "stress of being told he can leave the club but (the club) then going out of their way to force him to stay against his will".

Agent Saif Rubie posted a lengthy statement on social media claiming Liverpool had previously agreed to allow the England Under-18 worldwide to move on this summer and claiming the current impasse is threatening his client's mental health. "But what I can say is Bobby is one of the young players that we really care about", he told reporters at Friday's news conference".

Earlier at present, he tweeted, 'I just want to play football!', however the message was exclusively stay for a few minutes earlier than it was deleted.

"I know one thing for sure, and that is he is never going back there again and he is on such a small salary that no amount of fines will even make a difference", Rubie tweeted.

Rubie's statement came after the Reds blocked a loan offer from FC Nordsjælland with the agent claiming he was in extreme distress because of the club refusing to release him.

"As the interests of the player in question are not best served by either inaccurate speculation, inflammatory statements or public discourse, we will be making no further comment". That's a normal situation in all age groups.

"A general thing is, and this is really nothing to do with the Bobby Duncan thing, but young players have all the benefits", Klopp said. He added that all young players need to show patience when seeking to break through at a club of Liverpool's stature.

"The big problem they could have is they lose patience because life is like this". If you are Lionel Messi you can play for Barcelona at 17 but you don't see that very often.
