Klopp praised the player after Liverpool’s Champions League defeat against Napoli earlier in the season. He told the media (via CM):

“Napoli has many young players but they are also good. Some players left and there was nervousness in the environment. But I think we can build the team around Zielinski, a great player. I’m not surprised that Spalletti has stayed calm for the environment he has created, he is the ideal coach for Napoli.”
