Klopp: Liverpool won’t spend like clubs buying players constantly



Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, has said that the club will not be buying high profile players this summer like renowned spenders; Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City, and Paris Saint-Germain.

Liverpool have only signed 17 year old defender Sepp van den Berg from Dutch side PEC Zwolle.

The Merseyside club only just signed another 16-year-old youngster, Harvey Elliott from Fulham, who has been seen as the youngest player in the premier league history, having come on as a substitute during Fulham’s game against Wolves in May aged 16 years and 30 days.

And he has now decided to move to Anfield ahead of the new season.

Klopp has then revealed that they have closed shop for this summer due to economic reasons, insisting that the way other clubs do their own transactions in the transfer market will not put The Reds under pressure.

“I can’t say anything about what other teams are doing. I don’t know how they do it. We have to pay bills. Sorry, everybody has to pay bills, we have to pay bills,” Klopp told reporters as Liverpool prepared to face Napoli today (Sunday) in a preseason friendly.

“We invested money in this team. Now it looks like we are not, but we are not in this fantasy land where you just get whatever you want. You cannot do it constantly.

“It looks like there are four clubs in the world who can do it constantly -[Real] Madrid, Barcelona, [Manchester] City and PSG. Whatever they need, they do. You cannot compare that. That is the situation.”

Klopp added: “It is not a criticism. I know how people will take it, that I am jealous or whatever. I am not at all jealous.”

“This year is not the end of Liverpool FC. Next year there will be another transfer window. This team is really good and we haveinvested a lot in it. Now we have to work with that.”
