Liverpool media round-up: Klopp to have FA discussion, owners expected to attend Rubin Kazan clash

Anfield

A selection of the latest stories involving Liverpool Football Club this Thursday morning.

The FA will speak to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp over the injury sustained by Jordan Rossiter on international duty, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Rossiter played three games in five days for the England under-19 side and the German was evidently unhappy with the amount of time the 18-year-old had spent playing representing his country.

Klopp was quoted by the BBC saying: "These young players are our future. If we handle them like horses, we get horses.

"Rossiter is a special story. I don't know who I have to talk to about this but I will find a way to talk with somebody about this because it is not OK."

The Echo said the FA thought the situation had been explained by England under-19 manager Aidy Boothroyd after he spoke to staff at the Kirkby Academy last week.

Rossiter is one of several players who remains sidelined for tonight's Europa League clash with Rubin Kazan at Anfield, with Danny Ings and Joe Gomez possibly sidelined for the rest of the season, though Christian Benteke, Roberto Firmino and Dejan Lovren have all returned to training but won't be able to start against the Russian side, ESPN reports.

Tonight is the first game for Klopp in front of the Anfield crowd since his appointment of Liverpool boss earlier this month, as he looks to see progress from the side that played out a 0-0 draw with Tottenham at White Hart Lane in the Premier League last weekend. 

The Daily Mail reports that the club's principal owner John W Henry and Chairman Tom Werner will be in attendance at Anfield as the Reds look to put themselves in a good position to qualify from Group B.
