Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has admitted sitting down with Curtis Jones last week to talk about the next steps in his progression.
As reported by The Mirror, the German is keen to see the talented 20 year old fulfil his potential but felt the need to talk it through with the player.
“I had a long talk last week with Curtis, because I love the boy and I love the potential he has.
“But we have to now really make the next steps and make sure that he fulfils the potential he has on the pitch.
“You have these kinds of conversations when you are not 100 percent happy with the moment.
“He’s young, very young, but from what I see his potential is just incredible. So we have to find a way to show that much more often.
“That’s where we are in Curtis’s development.”
Klopp was keen to point out Jones’ versatility and the difference he can make to the team.
