Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain joined Liverpool in August after Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger decided to cash on him before his contract expired.
Now, Jurgen Klopp decided to speak up about Oxlade-Chamberlain although this may make Wenger mad at him.
According to the Liverpool boss, Oxlade-Chamberlain never quite lived up to his early promise at Arsenal because he was not instructed well.
Although Klopp has been impressed with the 24-year-old’s game but admitted that he needs more time to adapt.
“He had to adapt. I know how it is if you’re kind of a big signing.
“You have to perform immediately. But it’s difficult.
“I was happy from the first day about his involvement, about his attitude, and since then he became more and more a Liverpool player.”
“I think the biggest improvement, or the biggest potential he still has, is really being involved in goalscoring situations because he has it in himself,” Klopp said.
“It is unbelievable, but he was not asked for this too much I think in the past.
“If you watched Arsenal in the past, the two decisive players were Sanchez and Ozil.
“In a lot of moments, the decisive passes, Ozil or Sanchez. Then you are not that much involved.
“Here, we put it on much more shoulders, and if he’s on the pitch he needs to be involved in situations like this.
“I see really a lot of space for improvement as well, and that’s good.”
