Jurgen Klopp has made a frank assessment of his new forward, Cody Gakpo’s Liverpool debut.
The Dutch player played his first game for Liverpool in their 2-2 FA Cup draw against Wolves in the FA Cup on Saturday.
Gakpo joined Liverpool this month in a £37m deal from Dutch club, PSV Eindhoven and started on the left wing on Saturday.
The World Cup star was on for 84 minutes before being replaced by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Speaking after the game, Klopp admitted on ITV that the 23-year-old has not been fixed in his right position.
“He fitted into the game. It was not easy for a first step.
“We cannot expect it to be perfect, but he showed good signs. We have to get him in better positions but that will come no doubt,” Klopp said after the game
