Jordan Henderson, who agreed to leave Al-Ettifaq early in January, will suffer as a result.
The former captain of Liverpool, who was reportedly drawn to the prospect of developing football in the Middle East, joined the Saudi initiative in the summer.
Regarding Beckenbauer, Klopp said, “He was an even better person than a fantastic football player.”
