Jurgen Klopp names three players Liverpool would have signed if they had 'unlimited' money

Klopp Dreams Big: Names Stars Liverpool Couldn't Afford

Jurgen Klopp, known for his shrewd transfers at Liverpool, revealed his dream signings if money wasn't a concern: Kylian Mbappé, Jude Bellingham, and Erling Haaland.

Despite boasting the lowest net spend among the "big six" during his tenure, Klopp has guided Liverpool to a Premier League title, two Carabao Cups, an FA Cup, and constant battles with Manchester City.

"Imagine Mbappé here," Klopp said. "Bellingham, Haaland... We did it the Liverpool way with hard work and smart transfers."

Klopp praised Liverpool's ownership for their investment in infrastructure and support throughout his time.  He contrasted this approach with clubs prioritizing short-term success through high spending and frequent managerial changes.

He added: “We built two new stands, a new training ground, we bought Melwood back – the dumbest idea I ever heard was that we sold it in the first place. The owners do what owners do. Surprise! The owners want to earn money. Sorry to tell you that. It’s not like they earn money on a daily basis: they invest something and that’s how the whole world goes.

“We should be really happy that we have these owners and not guys who bought London clubs and other stuff. I wouldn’t have survived a year at Liverpool (with them in charge). ‘Great development but not good enough, sack him!’ A year later: ‘Sack him’. Then finally they play football where people think they might be back and they sack the manager anyway. People always think the grass is greener but we have owners who really feel responsible for the club and work really hard as well to be successful. I felt supported. We did it as good as we could have done and I’m fine with it.”

Klopp, who finished with a 60.09 win percentage at Liverpool, is now set for a considerable rest period after running out of energy.
