Brazil coach Tite responded to Jurgen Klopp’s claim that he had used the Liverpool star Fabinho.
Liverpool They are still assessing the extent of Fabinho’s hamstring injury suffered by the Midgeland team in the Champions League on Tuesday evening.
Klopp was asked after the match by a Brazilian journalist for an update on the midfielder – he said it was a blow for the national team too.
However, when answering the question, the Liverpool manager indicated that Tite is not inclined to pick a reds player for international matches.
The former Monaco star was selected in the Brazil squad in last month’s World Cup qualifiers against Bolivia and Peru, but he did not appear and has 12 caps for the Seleco.
Klopp said: “I’m not sure if Tete is so worried that he never played with him, so it is likely that he will not sit on the bench now for the next three international matches.”
“For us, it is clearly an adequate hit but we don’t know now.
“Fab was not positive but it was not very negative either so we will see, we have to wait for the examination tomorrow morning and then we will know more.”
However, when asked about Klopp Commenting, Titi pointed to common ground and shared the same thoughts between himself and the Reds captain.
“Clubs and I have the same mindset and the same values. Athletes’ health is essential,” he said Satisfied and accepted.
“The use is secondary, just as sport is secondary when we talk about health, when we talk about people, when we talk about something bigger.
“We have the same idea and the same way to watch football.”
The ECHO understands The timeframe for Fabinho’s injury is not yet clear and Klopp is expected to provide the latest update at his West Ham press conference tomorrow.

However, it seems unlikely that Fabinho will participate in any of the matches before the international break.
Liverpool is hoping the 27-year-old will avoid a more serious “third degree” tear of the right hamstring.
After the Hammers this weekend, Liverpool face a decisive match against Atalanta in next week’s Champions League and return to home stadiums away to Manchester City five days later.
