Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp discussed the logistics of signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Tuesday’s pre-Exeter press conference.
The Reds are in the market for a new striker this month – because Christian Benteke is awful, Danny Ings and Divock Origi are injured, and Daniel Sturridge is completely finished.
However, Klopp seemed only to be using Zlatan to illustrate a point. But why Zlatan!?
When asked if he has final say on transfer, Klopp replied: “Yes. But does anybody have the final say? For example, say I wanted to take Zlatan Ibrahimovic and we have to pay £100m plus a big contract at 35 I think I would have to ask first!
“Sometimes my staff and I have an idea about a player, then we collect information and then we have players our scouts bring in and we speak about it.
“If I don’t want a player to come here then he will not come. If a player I want doesn’t fit our budget then he will not come to. It’s a normal situation.”
Klopp was speaking to the media while wearing a delightful black v-neck.
