Joe Allen admits uncertain Liverpool future under Jurgen Klopp
Joe Allen admits negotiations over a contract have been put on hold following appointment of new Liverpool boss
Joe Allen admits he is facing an uncertain future at Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp.
The Wales international made a rare start at the Britannia Stadium on Wednesday night as Liverpool edged to a 1-0 victory over Stoke City in the first leg of their League Cup semi-final.
It is about knuckling down, doing my job and giving my best, which I always do
The 25-year-old, who was Brendan Rodgers’s second signing at Anfield following his £15m transfer in July 2012, has only made one Premier League start in the 2015/16 season.
Whilst the former Swansea City playmaker accepts he is facing a battle to save his Reds career, Allen vows to continue to give 100 per cent in training in a bid to win over new manager Klopp.
“That is something which has gone very quiet so I am not too sure really,” Allen is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.
“I have made only one league start this season and I want to play more, I think that is obvious for any player in that situation.
“From my point of view it is about knuckling down, doing my job and giving my best, which I always do.”
Allen has made a further five appearances from the bench in the Premier League so far this season.
The Welsh midfielder started four of Liverpool’s six Europa League games and all of their League Cup games so far.
