Liverpool face Manchester City this Sunday evening in an attempt to revive themselves. At a press conference, Jürgen Klopp spoke about the economic differences between the two English teams.
“No one can compete with City. You have the best team in the world and you add the best striker in the world. No matter the price, you do. What is Liverpool doing? We cannot act like them. It is not possible, not possible. It’s simple: there are three clubs in world football that can do whatever they want financially. It’s legal, it’s fine, but they can do whatever they want. Compete with them? It is not possible. But it’s not a problem for me at all, that’s how it is,” concedes the Reds coach at a press conference.
During the summer transfer window, Manchester City spent more than 100 million euros to buy Erling Haaland, Kalvin Phillips or even former Anderlecht player Sergio Gomez. However, the Reds were also spenders this summer: the recruitments of Darwin Nunez and Fabio Carvalho are proof of this.
“I’ve heard Newcastle sporting director (Dan Ashworth) say there is no (financial) cap for this club and he’s absolutely right. There is no cap for Newcastle. Congratulation. Some clubs have ceilings, ”insisted Jürgen Klopp without mentioning the name of the third club mentioned.
