Liverpool didn’t increase their offer for Shakhtar Donetsk attacker Alex Teixeira on Transfer Deadline Day.
The Reds were unwilling to meet the £38million asking price from the Ukrainian club.
“It’s very important that yes, you can trust us,” manager Jurgen Klopp told the media.
“It was absolutely a common decision (on Teixeira). We said we can’t play this game until the end.
Teixeira was desperate to join Liverpool, uniting with compatriots Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Lucas Leiva.
“We made offers. I won’t say too much about that, but they were realistic, absolutely, with the pluses of it being January, the Premier League, all the pluses you have when you make negotiations with other clubs.
“But it was a case of ‘if you don’t want it okay, we can’t change the situation, do what you want’. It’s important for now and for the future. It’s not that we haven’t got money or anything, but you have to work respectfully and responsibly.
“That’s what we do. We will do things, for sure, not in this transfer window, but we will do things.
“It’s not that you should buy and sell, buy and sell. In my opinion usually I make a one-year contract with the players.
“I know they have them for longer, but for me I say ‘okay, yes, you are in my team and if you don’t play the biggest rubbish in your life, I will trust you, you have to trust me’.
“And after a year, we’ll look. Maybe he wants somewhere else, maybe I want him to go somewhere else. That’s football.”
So, in a nutshell Klopp will give his players until the end of the season to prove themselves.
