Jürgen Klopp's update on transfer window
Jürgen Klopp has spoken about the current transfer window and explained why Liverpool are unlikely to do significant business before the deadline.
The Reds manager insists he is ‘really happy’ with the make-up of a squad that clinched Champions League glory in Madrid last month.
Asked for an update on transfers and the prospect of outgoings in the coming weeks, Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com in Indiana: “We are pretty relaxed in that, we will see what’s coming up.
“How I said, it will not be the biggest transfer window of LFC; we invested a lot in the team in the last two years, I would say. We cannot spend every year in the same manner.
“People talk about it like, ‘Now another £300m or £200m’. There are maybe only two clubs in the world – it looks in the moment like Barcelona and [Real] Madrid can do the same – City and PSG that can do it every year.
“But we are fine. I’m happy with the team, we are really happy. We have to see if we find maybe one position, if we find something for it, but there’s no real pressure because it’s not about signing a player. We have solutions for all the situations.
“Do we have exactly the solution that everybody from outside would be 100 per cent happy? I don’t think so because people want to have world-class here, world-class here and the guy on the bench has to be world-class as well. That’s not so easy. But we are of course working on it.
“On the outgoing side, we are relaxed. The young boys are here and enjoyed working with us a lot. Not to forget Naby and Shaq are injured still and are not here with us. Players will come back.
“I’m really looking forward to the season, it will be really exciting again.”
