Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp unaware of dressing room ban Jordan Henderson has introduced

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits he doesn’t know about team captain Jordan Henderson stopping his team-mates from talking about winning the Premier League. The undefeated Reds are on the verge of securing their first title in 30 years with a comfortable 22-point lead at the top of the table.

I didn’t know Hendo had banned that. It is just how we see it

The Merseysiders only need 12 more points to bring the trophy back to Anfield and could be crowned champions by March 21 if they win their next four matches in the competition.

But Klopp’s men refuse to get carried away, so much so that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain recently claimed that Henderson has banned the players from talking about winning the title.

However, the Liverpool boss insists he is unaware of all that as he argues that his players are all solely focused on winning one game at a time.

Klopp said: “I didn’t know Hendo had banned that. It is just how we see it.

“I can’t imagine they sit in the dressing room and discuss it before I come in because when I come in I see nothing of that situation.

“I don’t see anyone wanting to talk about it and Hendo telling them to shut up. It is just focusing on the next game.
