Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s agent Mino Raiola, who also is Mario Balotelli’s agent, has launched a verbal attack on Jurgen Klopp saying that the Armenian international has never had any issues dealing with pressure as Klopp once suggested, instead he was not properly deployed by Klopp.

After being signed by Borussia Dortmund for a club-record $27 million, he was seen as the replacement for Mario Gotze.

But, Klopp’s gegenpressing and long-ball tactics didn’t suit him, he is a player who thrives on short passes build up play.

He scored 12 goals in 18 competitive matches so far.

In 14/15 he scored 5 goals in 42 games, that’s what you call progress.

His stats under Tuchel, this season (Bundesliga): 5 goals + 5 assists and (In all competitions): 12 goals + 11 assists.

In an interview with BILD,’’super agent’’ Raiola has accused Klopp of playing his client out of position.Raiola says,’’ Micki never had a mental problem. Micki just plays in his position now. That’s it. He’s one of the best players in Europe in it. You just have to play players where they are best. When you play [Lionel] Messi at right-back, he also wouldn’t be that good.”

Now, after the verbal attack, it remains to be seen what the future of Mario Balotelli in Liverpool unfolds, considering Raiola is also his agent.
