Klopp admits he doesn't have full control of Liverpool transfers


Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits he doesn't have full control of transfers.

Klopp was asked about Saturday opponents Newcastle United's transfer model in particular, after they were taken over by the Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund in October 2021, ahead of Liverpool's trip to St. James' Park this weekend.

But rather than bemoan his own club's lacking of financial backing in comparison, the German insisted the Reds' own model isn't too dissimilar, before explaining how he prefers to strengthen his own squad.

“In the moment you recognise what they are doing. I have no idea how they should do it," Klopp told reporters at his pre-match press conference. “What did I do different?

“The only difference is where the money is coming from. The rest is similar. Not exactly, but it was not that we did six players in, eight out and we go again. I think you have to do it step-by-step.

“But if one of your bosses tells you, 'We do it now,' and brings in 12 players at once, you have to deal with that.

“We have a lot of power in the manager's chair but not all the power. We have to do what other people are telling us."
