Transfers

Jurgen Klopp urges Liverpool owners to spend

Jurgen Klopp has sent a message to the Liverpool owners.

FSG have owned Liverpool since 2010 and during that time have guided Liverpool to a league title and one Champions League.

And whilst Liverpool have enjoyed some success, they have struggled to compete in the market.

This is because FSG prefer to only buy big players once they have sold others.

A sound business model but one that Jurgen Klopp believes may need to be altered on occasion.

Klopp told reporters: “In the structure we had, we were obviously able to spend money, but we always had to look and say ‘what did we earn?’ That was always the situation, it was clear. The two biggest transfers we did in the past with Ali [Becker] and Virg [Van Dijk], we all know how it happened, we got some money from Barcelona [for Philippe Coutinho] and spent it wisely, I would say.

“For me, how we did it so far brought us to where we are. But fresh money is no mistake, let me say it like this. Nothing gets cheaper, and not only because of the inflation rate. Sometimes you have to spend. We are really happy to give all our young kids a chance, and I’m so positive about the impact they will have in the future, but around it you have to, from time to time, thrown in proven quality. And in an ideal world, they are young as well, and not 35!

“So yes, from time time, you have to take some risks, and we will see. I have no idea what will happen, but I am positive about it. If in the end it is not positive, then I can start worrying, but I just think everything will be fine.”
