Jurgen Klopp take a jibe at Chelsea transfer: My club is not owned by an oligarch

Liverpool's manager says that we are living in a world of uncertainty and spending a lot of money on transfers is not realistic for his club.

He explains that Liverpool can't change overnight and just buy half a new team as the Blues have.

Klopp adds that it takes time for new signings to fit in and that's a potential problem that Chelsea could face in the upcoming season.

"We live in a world at the moment with a lot of uncertainty," Jurgen Klopp told BBC Radio 5 Live.

"For some clubs, it seems to be less important how uncertain the future is - owned by countries, owned by oligarchs, that's the truth.

"We cannot just change it overnight and say 'so now we want to behave like Chelsea, now we want to behave like them' now they've signed a lot of players.

That can be an advantage, of course, but that means they have to fit together pretty quickly as well. It's not only about bringing quality in.

"You cannot bring in the 11 best players in the world and just hope a week later they play the best football they ever will play. It's about working together on the training ground."

This is not the first time Klopp has mentioned Chelsea's spending spree - he mentioned previously that the Blues are different from other clubs and the pandemic does not seem to have affected their transfer plans.

Klopp can talk all he wants but the bottom line is this - the Blues have played it very smart this window and have invested in the future, whereas Liverpool's squad is ageing and it's not our fault that their owners are too stingy to spend! If anything, Klopp sounds jealous of how Chelsea have backed Lampard. Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
