English Premier League outfit Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has admitted that he made a difficult transfer decision to sell Rhian Brewster to Sheffield United on a permanent deal in the last summer transfer window.

Knowing the importance of the player, the former Borussia Dortmund manager claims he did not find it difficult to give his nod to Rhian Brewster after facing Sheffield United on Saturday and seeing his performance at Anfield.

The Liverpool game was the first full debut for the striker after his £23 million move before the transfer window was closed in October. While Sheffield United are glad to land Rhian Brewster, the Red Devils boss is not satisfied with his decision.

The German boss now holds the opinion that Sheffield United are now more dangerous with Rhian Brewster in the team especially as his team had to fight out a 2-1 win, all thanks to goals from Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota.

Jurgen Klopp showered praise on Rhian Brewster as he admits respecting and loving him as a special player on and off the pitch but for the difficult moments he had at Anfield, it was necessary for him to leave the club for a new start.

Liverpool are now second in the premier League after their win against Sheffield but they are faced with the defensive challenge as their star player Virgil Van Dijk is out of the season due to the injury he sustained against Everton in the Merseyside derby.

The Reds team are also linked with the signature of French forward Kylian Mbappe who is keen to Leave Paris Siant Germain after refusing to agree on a new deal with the club. A contest for the signature of the World Cup winner is expected between the Premier League title holders and Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid.
