Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp satirized that there are 3 giants in the world of football that can do whatever they want because of their wealth since they have no limit when it comes to transfer matters when attending the club’s pre-match press conference against Manchester City in the Premier League on Saturday.
Jürgen Klopp made the above response when asked at a press conference what he thought after Manchester City spent a lot of money to buy the outstanding Norwegian international center forward Erling Håland.
Klopp sarcastically said: “Oh… you definitely won’t like to hear my answer. You really won’t like this answer, and I know you already know what kind of answer you’ll have in your heart. ”
“I heard someone from Newcastle say they have no limit on spending and I think that’s right, absolutely right, Newcastle obviously has no limits, but some other clubs still have limits, so congratulations to them.”
“No one can compare to Manchester City in this regard. You already have the best team in the world and you end up going in for another best centre-forward in the world on the market. It doesn’t matter what the price is, you just put in the money. That’s it.”
“Manchester City won’t like people commenting on them like this. No one likes this kind of competition. Just ask anyone, I think you should know what the answer is.”
“We’re not going to act like them, it’s impossible to do this at Liverpool. There are only three clubs in the world that can do whatever they want financially, only they can do it legally. Anything they want, they can do it. They’ll tell you, all we have is money, and that’s how it is.”
“We also have to look at factors such as “I need this, I need that, I must make this position younger, pay attention to this prospect, and promote this talent.” This is what you have to do as a head coach.”
“For me it’s not my problem anymore. It’s always been that way. You always ask me this question, don’t ask me again, because it’s always me who always responds with the same words. You already know the answer don’t you, so why are you still asking me, isn’t that right?!”
The “three clubs” Klopp is referring to obviously refer to the giants controlled by the oil-producing rich Middle Easst countries, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia’s sovereign funds owned clubs, Paris Saint-Germain, Newcastle United and Manchester City.
A few days ago, Newcastle United Director of Operations Dan Ashworth said in an interview that the club spent a total of about £220 million last year, and there is no limit on transfer spending.
Paris Saint-Germain who spent more than €200 million in a row to buy Neymar, Kylian Mbappé, signed Leo Messi with a sky-high wages in a contract as well as reportedly renewing Mbappé’s contract with a weekly wage of €200 million to build their Ligue 1 fantasy team after the acquisition by Qatari wealthy businessman Nasser Al-Khelaifi, has attracted criticism from many people over the years.
