Jurgen Klopp left shocked with rival clubs spending – ‘they have no limits’

Liverpool manager said it was ‘not possible’ for the club to equal the spending seen at Premier League title rivals

Jurgen Klopp states he cannot conjecture the heavy spending in the Premier League and how clubs have “no limits” in the transfer market.

The Liverpool manager has spent £36million this summer on Ibrahima Konaté from Red Bull Leipzig but his outlay has been small related to Manchester City breaking the British transfer record for Jack Grealish in a £100million deal and Chelsea buying Romelu Lukaku for £97.5million. Manchester United have also spent £73million on Jadon Sancho.

City are also looking to break their own record to bank Harry Kane before the summer transfer window shuts but Klopp says his budget is based on how much money his club generates.

“If Harry is really going to Man City it would not make them worse, so that is incredible. City last year still won the league but not exactly what they wanted,” he said. “That is the situation.

“There are different things you can do in football. It is no criticism at all. I don’t understand it 100%, how it is possible but it seems to be possible for them. That is the situation. For us, it is not possible.

“To say ‘I need that or that’, I’m not like this. My job is to work with the players I have and I love working with these players. I love each second. We will try to win it with all we have and there are ways in football to do it.”

Klopp has no plan to break the transfer policy of Liverpool, who look for value in the market. In the Champions League this season one of the favorites will be Paris Saint-Germain after they docked Lionel Messi in a deal worth £1million-a-week in wages.

“We cannot compare to other clubs because obviously they have no limits. We have limits. ‘But we have been successful even with having limits in the last few years and should try this again and not use it as an excuse,” Klopp said.

“If we don’t win a game it will not be because we didn’t sign him or him. We want to use our resources. That is passion, a good way, a desire and clear plan. That is our football. Let’s see which is the right way. We can’t spend money we don’t have – maybe others can.”

Liverpool’s focus has been on assigning new contracts for exiting players, with Virgil van Dijk committing himself to the club until 2025 and Jordan Henderson’s situation set to be resolved as the club captain has two years on his existing terms.

“We will sort it. There is no doubt about that,” said Klopp.

On his club’s spending power, Klopp added: “We are allowed to spend the money we earn. That’s what we always did. We spent before we earned on Konate and that is what we did. I am never surprised by the financial power of City, Chelsea, United.’

“’The summer is always the same; people think that if you don’t sign then you don’t work. That’s not the case. Maybe this summer is not the most exciting, but maybe if you are a real Liverpool fan you are happy with the news the club delivered last few weeks. Alisson Becker, Fabinho, Virgil – others will follow.”
