"It's not for me to think about these kind of things".
"He plays a good season, I recognise that already".
While supporters remain divided on the flashy outfit, there is no doubt that Liverpool feel at home in bright orange with Klopp's men averaging four goals per game while wearing the third kit.
It was a similar story on Tuesday evening as the Reds put FC Porto to the sword, winning 5-0 away in the first leg of their Champions League clash to all but secure their spot in the quarter-finals.
He came on in the final stages of the 5-0 win and impressed, even setting up the fifth Liverpool goal.
"Well you'll have to wait and see what happens because Emre Can's leaving, obviously [Naby] Keita's coming in", Gerrard explained ahead of last night's Champions League win over Porto.
"And he's living in the north-west of England where it is cloudy and rainy most of the time". It makes Anfield a fortress, a seething cauldron from which few visiting sides emerge with fond memories.
The second leg will take place in Paris, on March 6. He was always important, he was always fantastic for us, even in his not-that-good moments.
The first-leg was played in Portugal, with the hosts getting off to a dream start, thanks to a 13th-minute Nene strike.
Ings has had a torrid time since moving to Liverpool from Burnley in 2015.
"If someone is in a better area, they look for each other".
Keita's dynamism, proficiency both in defensive and offensive actions, and flair on the ball means he is tailor-made for Liverpool's style.
"On one occasion we sought to break out quickly from the back in a move that started with our goalkeeper but we lost possession and conceded the first".
He will need to match the Ivoirian's transformative influence, or course, as well as carry the team to the silverware that is arguably needed to validate Klopp's Liverpool tenure.
"Keita is a No 8, Keita is a dribbler, and a runner".
