Liverpool fans have reacted on Twitter to rumours that there’s ‘not a great deal’ for the club to spend on players this summer.
BBC presenter and commentator, Darren Fletcher, told BBC Radio 5 Live Sport that ‘people close to Liverpool’ have told him about the little Jurgen Klopp will have to spend when the window re-opens.
“Well, listen I don’t know, I don’t sit in the Liverpool boardroom,” said Fletcher. “But people close to the club tell me that there’s not a great deal of money to spend on players. At the moment, the focus is on redeveloping the ground.
Liverpool haven’t been a club, under FSG, to spend in a wild manner like their rivals, and it’s proven to work wonders.
Andy Robertson is a prime example, whilst those at the Etihad spent hundreds and hundreds of millions on fullbacks, Liverpool’s left-back only cost them £10 million (BBC Sport) and their other came through the academy.
But this season, after an injury-hit campaign, it’s obvious that not only does the squad need bulking up with quality, but freshness is also required.
Plus, certain underperforming and injury-savaged players need to be moved on.
And most Liverpool fans are annoyed at the situation because they would like to see Klopp backed big time in the market.
It won’t help their cause when clubs like Aston Villa, Leeds and their neighbours, Everton, continue to push in the transfer market, whilst they act like a team that’s nowhere near the top.
