The Polish star, linked with Manchester United, looks set to remain with the 2012 Champions League runners-up for the final year of his contract.
Dortmund rejected a bid from Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich for Lewandowski's services over the summer, and the player feels his club have not kept their word to him on a number of issues.
Polish newspaper Rzeczpospolita quoted Lewandowski as saying: "No matter how hard I will train and what I will do, the feeling that I've been cheated will still be there."
However Klopp told German media he felt certain the 24-year-old, who has notched up 54 goals in 98 Bundesliga appearances, would continue to work well for the team.
"For me what he does is a thousand times more important than what he says because what he does needs no interpretation," Klopp declared.
"Whatever is left to be discussed will be discussed internally. The idea is to close this subject. Everything is in order. Nothing has changed since yesterday or the day before yesterday.
"I am convinced we will clear up everything in the coming days."
