Liverpool legend, Graeme Souness has commend Jurgen Klopp while stating that Liverpool has been the best team in the transfer market since the German became the club’s coach.
Souness bent on the fact that Jurgen Klopp is limited to smaller funds but yet pulled some very impressive signings.
Liverpool had a midfield overhaul and still acquire some world class midfielders to complement their already established attack and defense in the last summer transfer window.
In a piece written for Daily Mail, Souness said;
“If Liverpool can break City’s grip on the title this season, what a message it would send out to everyone else that there is another way to win trophies, which does not involve having limitless funds and a Gulf state sovereign wealth fund at your disposal.
“In Jurgen’s time at Liverpool, no club has recruited better players – which, I’ve stated here many times, is the only thing you must get right. They won a European Cup and a league while spending a fraction of the sum of Manchester City. Pep Guardiola joined a club that had won the title twice in five years, under Roberto Mancini and Manuel Pellegrini. Jurgen joined one that hadn’t won it for 25 years. Pep’s net spend has been £550million. Jurgen’s has been £128m.
“In some ways, I fear for my old club, long-term, in the face of Middle Eastern wealth at Manchester City, Newcastle United and potentially Manchester United. Their owners, Fenway Sports Group, are hard-nosed businesspeople who this week brought in other American investors to strengthen the club’s financial position.
“That’s why it pleases me to see Liverpool with that remodelled midfield and a point to prove, heading to Tottenham today for the mouth-watering fixture of this weekend.”
