Klopp: Why Liverpool won’t spend big despite record profits

Date published: Saturday 9th February 2019 11:03

Jurgen Klopp hopes Liverpool “don’t need too much money” in upcoming transfer windows.

Liverpool announced that they posted record-breaking profits last year on Friday, despite a transfer spend that included £75m on Virgil van Dijk.

Despite that, Klopp hopes to not have to improve too much on “a really strong squad”, instead focusing on improving the players already at his disposal.

“I’m not a massive numbers guy, but Mike Gordon is in and he didn’t jump on me and say, ‘the numbers are outstanding, come on, let’s spend all the money’,” he said.

“We didn’t only earn a lot, we spent a little bit in the last couple of years.

“Everything is fine and it was always clear we had to change things for the better. That’s what we did with different things.

“We’ve built a really strong squad – unfortunately we have a lot not available at the moment, but we have a strong squad.

“It’s a squad built for the future, not only for this season, so I am fine and I hope we don’t need too much money in the next years, to be honest, because if you have the right players in, work with them and make the best of it.”
