Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp takes swipe at Man Utd transfer policy

Manchester United have had a busy summer but should they sign Paul Pogba for over £100 million it would shatter the world transfer record.

United fans may be happy with all the spending but Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is not convinced.

Klopp stated that he does not see the logic in spending £100 million on one player and that football should be about playing together as a team and not just about star players.

The Reds manager emphasised the importance of building a cohesive team that play together effectively.

“If you bring one player in for £100million or whatever and he gets injured then it all goes through the chimney,” Klopp was quoted as saying by the Liverpool Echo.

“The day that this is football, I’m not in a job any more, because the game is about playing together. That is why somebody invented passes so these players can play together. It’s not about running with the ball because you can do it all the time.”

Klopp responded to a question regarding whether he would spend what United are reported to be offering Juventus for Pogba by saying: “I’m not really interested in things from other clubs. They can do what they want and spend as much as they want.

“I don’t know exactly how much we have spent so far. For five or six players we could have bought one player for the same money but I don’t care.”

The Reds have had a pretty busy transfer window themselves spending around £65 million on six new signings according to the Echo.

However, unlike their rivals Liverpool have received around £40 million in transfer sales over the same period.

Liverpool are currently on their pre-season US tour and will take on Italian giants AC Milan next at the Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California – home of the San Francisco 49ers.
