Jurgen Klopp Pays Tribute To Danny Ings
Thursday, 9th Aug 2018 23:30

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has issued a heartfelt tribute to Danny Ings as he heads South to join Saints.

Jurgen Klopp is a man who many football fans either love or hate, but it can't be denied he is a man who wears his heart on his sleeve and football would be a better place if there more characters in the game like him.

It was therefore nice of him to wish Danny Ings good luck as he leaves Anfield to join Southampton.

Klopp admitted that it was with a heavy heart he granted the popular 26-year-old the opportunity to leave the Reds, telling Liverpoolfc.com:

“It is a very strange feeling saying goodbye to Danny. The biggest emotion is how much we will miss him.

“He is such an outstanding boy. Honestly, if you could bottle character and spirit, his would sell worldwide - he is so incredibly positive and full of energy. But we won’t just miss his character because he is a footballer who has all the tools.

“What is clear is that in his time here he had zero luck really, certainly in my time. Before joining I tried to watch as many games on tape as I could from the season so far and Danny Ings stood out as someone I was really looking forward to coaching.

“We all know his story and the bad luck he has had since then.

“It’s why the other emotion is that of being pleased for Danny that he has such a good move and his future is now very bright.

“When he said to us he thinks this is the window it might be best to look elsewhere, for the sake of his career and playing more regular football, it was clear early on that Southampton has great appeal to him personally. It’s his home, his family is there, it’s his boyhood club. They have a great manager and I think the supporters and him will feed off each other’s passion and energy.

“So we say farewell to a friend, but for Danny I know the best chapters in his personal story are still to be written. He is as fit now as at any point of his career I would bet and he just requires the opportunity.

“He has that opportunity and on behalf of his Liverpool family we say good luck Danny and we will miss you.”

Nothing wrong with that farewell note. Quite a salute and I sense no phony words at all. So,
on behalf of Danny Ings - thanks, pretty well written, Jürgen. Ings could easily have a better season than You. There is certainly a hell of a lot more pressure on Your slim shoulders. We will wellcome You, your fake pearly whites and Your team at Saint Mary´s and hopefully send You home wheeping - especially if You make stupid nonsens substitutions late in the game involving former Saints players just to provoke us as we noticed last season.

I will openly admit that I have for some time had a sense of antipathy towards Liverpool, their manager and fans, but I have to say, what a refreshing, dignified and mature approach by Klopp to someone moving on, and something perhaps our club and our fans would do well to learn from. The rancour and ill feeling when some of our players have moved on, I do not think has served us well, accepting that some players have not been too clever in the manner in which they have augmented a move.

San Marco as Ings is on loan he wont be playing against Liverpool this season unless we make the move permanent in January as we did with Ryan Bertrand in a similar position 4 years ago

The usual load of "passionate" cr@p we have come to expect from him.

I just ran this through the Bo!!ocks Translator ( just back from repairs as it blew up processing Ralph Krueger's last interview) and this came out:

"Do you think Ings is really our type of player? We're too glamourous! Compared to the players like Salah, Mane, etc. on our team, Ings was just dead wood. I had no intention of playing him ever again-not even subbing on when we were beating his hometown team.
He knew this. We wanted to shift him out of here and thought we would get some idiot to pay 20 million for him. But when even Les wouldn't go for that, we had to change our tactics. We'll put out the story that we really love him and want to keep him, but it's his idea to move not ours. I'll do one of my usual heartfelt interviews with one of our shills in the media, maybe shed a tear or two, and we'll come out of this smelling like a rose!"

Here's hoping Ings makes him look like the Klown he is!

You know when you're not sure you agree with something, but you admire the contribution? Well done Boondock, you got a gold star.
