    Lfc rumour

    Kabak who currently plays for Schalke has been a target  for Liverpool as the Reds eye up defensive reinforcements following Dejan Lovren's move to Zenit St Petersburg.

    Kabak was seen appearing at spit at Werder Bremen left-back Ludwig Augustinsson during Schalke's 3-1 Bundesliga defeat on Saturday.

    The event drew criticism from German legend Lothar Matthäus as well as Swedish left-back Augustinsson.

    "That was on purpose, a conscious action," said former Bayern Munich and Inter Milan star Matthäus while speaking as a pundit on Sky Sports.

    "Getting spat on as a player is the worst. I hope he will be punished."

    But 20-year-old Kabak who was later sent off the  pitch after getting two yellow cards pleaded he did not mean to spit at Augustinsson, and apologises to his opponent after the game.

    "It was not intentional - the view from the outside is deceptive," he said.

    "I've never done anything like this and never will because it's just unsporting.

    "This was very unfortunate. In any case, my apologies to Ludwig."
