Jurgen Klopp says he has no problem with Liverpool not dipping into the transfer market in January as owners Fenway Sports Group are only acting in the very best interests of the club.
The Premier League champions have actually been severely diminished this season, especially in the heart of their defence with Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez long-term absentees and Joel Matip having a hard time to stay fit.
Klopp is unlikely to add to his team during the mid-season window, but the Reds manager understands it is tough to do company at this time even without the monetary effect of the coronavirus pandemic.
The Liverpool employer insists he is on the exact same page as club ownership, no matter the crucial lacks that could undermine their push for prizes.
” In excellent times everyone believes our owners are actually generous – ‘My God, huge finalizings, whatever’ – and in bad times everybody believes they are really tight – maybe since they are from a various nation – but they are not, they are definitely worried about the club and success of the club,” Klopp said.
” And that is an understanding how we have it. They see exactly the very same things I see about need of players and things – it’s not that I state ‘By the method a centre-half would be really great’ and they state, ‘Wow, a centre-half. Really? Why?’
” It is all clear, all on the table, we deal with that. It is the circumstance and on top of that we have January, not the most convenient transfer window, having not the cash exactly like we desire.
” It is a window where other clubs state, ‘No, we have enough [money] to endure’ so we don’t do anything on our targets.
” It is nothing to do with distressing [about whether it will impact their chances of winning prizes] or not. These are the truths.
” My job is to handle the circumstances which I always do. If the world would remain in a totally normal location, we would try whatever to do the best things now however the world is not in a regular place so I do not know why we constantly try to treat the football like it is independent of other problems around.”
