Liverpool defender Phillips: Klopp urged me to enjoy Stuttgart return

Liverpool defender Nat Phillips says manager Jurgen Klopp had a word with him before returning to VfB Stuttgart.

The 22-year-old defender has revealed the advice Klopp gave him ahead of his second loan switch VfB.

"He said 'go back and enjoy it'," Phillips told the Stuttgarter Nachrichten.

"It makes perfect sense for me to be back at VfB to accumulate game time. That was the original plan.

"Jurgen Klopp also thanked me for my efforts. But he shouldn't have done that. I am grateful myself."
