Liverpool defender Ragnar Klavan has said he won’t ‘analyse’ the lack of game time he’s had at Anfield since joining in the summer.
The centre-back was signed in a £4.2million deal from Augsburg and started against Arsenal on the opening day of the season. He then featured in the Reds’ 2-0 defeat to Burnley at the end of August and has only started one Premier League game since
The 31-year-old, who is with Estonia for the international break, has said he respects the decisions of manager Jurgen Klopp.
‘If you don’t play, it is unpleasant, but it’s the coach’s decision,’ Klavan told Soccernet.ee.
‘At the moment it seems to be a legitimate choice, the club won 6-1 [against Watford prior to the international break] and are now league leaders.
‘For me, [not starting games] doesn’t mean anything, and I’m not going to analyse it.
‘I have the advantage that I’m old enough to understand the situation. Certainly it’s different and takes getting used to.
‘Every once in a while, on game day, you expect to play, and if you don’t, there’s a reason for this.’
