LIVERPOOL boss, Jurgen Klopp has addressed the club’s lack of transfer business this summer, having only signed Kostas Tsimikas from Olympiacos.
Jurgen Klopp last night claimed Liverpool can’t spend like clubs who are owned by “oligarchs and countries” amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The Kop boss also warned that Chelsea ‘s business in the market doesn’t mean they will be an instant success.
Liverpool have as yet just brought in Greek left-back Kostas Tsimikas for £11.7million.
But Klopp believes they cannot go gung-ho in the market as they wait to see how the financial fall-out of the virus affects the club.
And he doesn’t feel they need to after winning the Premier League and European Cup in the last two years.
“We live in a world at the moment with a lot of uncertainty,” Klopp told BBC Five Live.
“For some clubs it seems less important how uncertain the future is: [those] owned by countries, owned by oligarchs, that’s the truth. We’re a different kind of club.
“We got to the Champions League final two years ago, we won it last year, and became Premier League champions last season by being the club we are, by leading the way we are led.”
Manchester City and Chelsea are not the only clubs who have been busy so far in this window.
