Nabil Fekir blamed Liverpool for failed move

Nabil Fekir, who lifted the World Cup with his country in Russia, blamed Liverpool insisting he doesn't know why he isn't playing for Klopp's team this season. Liverpool agreed a £53million deal with Lyon for the France international in June but the transfer collapsed following his medical due to concerns over an old knee injury. "I heard a lot of things," he said. "The real reason? Only Liverpool know. "These things happen, it's just how it is. We have to move on, it's well in the past now. "I have totally come to terms with the failed transfer to Liverpool." Fekir has yet to feature for Lyon this season and head coach Bruno Genesio said, that Nabil has found what happened tough to take. "It is never easy accepting this kind of situation, when you are very near to signing for a club where you want to go, where you want to reach another level and to give a boost to your career," Genesio said earlier this week. “But it could have been worse for him. He is at Lyon, at a strong club, he is captain of a team who plays in the Champions League. "This could be a very important season for Nabil. I haven't seen any attitudes or signs that make me think he won't live up to his role the way he did last year.” Source: ECHO
