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

Joe Allen

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.
