Liverpool boss Klopp tells Sakho: It's about how I feel about you!

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp won't recall Mamadou Sakho for their League Cup tie with Derby County.

Sakho hasn't even travelled with the squad which will train at St George's Park tomorrow morning.

Liverpool boss Klopp is still not happy with the Frenchman's fitness.

He said: “He is still working on his fitness.

“He is closer, but there is a big difference between match fitness and everything.

“It is not about how the player feels, it is about close I feel he is.

“It is a long, long time since he played and all the other players have not had a long break so it makes more sense if we use them."
