Manchester United fans are slamming Jurgen Klopp over the same thing as Liverpool complete Virgil van Dijk transfer

A number of Manchester United fans have dug up an old Jurgen Klopp quote and used it to hit out at him after Liverpool’s completed transfer move for Virgil van Dijk.

BBC Sport report that Liverpool have paid £75million to Southampton for the Netherlands international – both a club-record purchase and a world-record fee for a defender.

Some United fans believe Klopp has spectacularly gone back on his words when United signed Paul Pogba for what BBC Sport reported as an £89m fee back in 2016.

Several have been quoting the German tactician in their tweets as they hit out at him for what looks, in fairness, like a certain degree of hypocrisy about transfer fees.

‘If you bring one player in for £100m and he gets injured, then it all goes through the chimney,’ Klopp is quoted in the Metro.

‘The day that this is football, I’m not in a job anymore, because the game is about playing together.’

Here’s the response from United fans…
