The Italian said: “I have a different way to decide my future.

“I want to speak with my club, I have a contract but the problem is not the contract – the problem is to find the same plan, the same target, the same vision for the future.

“For me, I have not decided yet what is my future, because I have the contract, but anyway I want to speak with Tony [Bloom], my club, to understand their plan, to understand his plan, the Tony plan.

Pep Lijnders

Former Liverpool star Dean Saunders is tipping No2 Pep Lijnders to replace Jurgen Klopp this summer.

Saunders said: “At least Lijnders knows what’s going on there. It’s difficult, who do you give the job to? That club is that big.”

“Then we take the decision together, without problems.

“The future I want to keep my ambition, my motivation, I live for football 24 hours a day, I want to know what is the plan, what is the project, what is the future because if I don’t feel comfortable, I don’t feel the right motivation, I can’t stay any longer.”
