Klopp sends out warning to Perisic

"An old team-mate of mine once said: 'Nobody has ever talked his way into the team'," Klopp told a press conference. Earlier in the week while away with the Croatia national team, Perisic had claimed Klopp had no trust in him and that he and Klopp had no relationship. His agent Tonci Martic had also said Perisic wanted to leave the club immediately. "At first we want to find out if Perisic said what was quoted," BVB CEO Aki Watzke said, wondering if Perisic had got lost in translation. "If he did say it, it is not okay." Klopp also explained he wanted to discuss things with the player first, but also sent out a warning to Perisic and other players. "I have realized Ivan's not happy with his situation and it would be strange if he was. That's perfectly normal," he said. "And for the future, not only for Ivan, whoever believes he could up the pressure with making those statements is on the wrong track, that's nonsense." Perisic has so far failed to be a major impact on Dortmund and has fallen out of favour in recent weeks, with Kevin Grosskreutz replacing injured Poland skipper Jakub Blazczykowski instead. "I have so far not been able to draw the great potential he has out of him and he has not been able to do so as well. It's my responsibility to help the boys to get their potential onto the pitch," Klopp said.

During the press conference Klopp came back to the Perisic issue and repeated: "To voice your criticism in public is [something which happens in] Kindergarten, you shouldn't do that." "A pro who does not start is not happy but if he shuts his mouth afterwards hic chances are good it will get better."

Borussia Dortmund face Greuther Furth tomorrow. Poland international Blaszczykowski will return to the squad and most likely will join Ivan Perisic on the bench.
