Klopp insists that Liverpool is ‘not stubborn’ when it comes to signing players
Despite Liverpool’s poor season so far, Jurgen Klopp reiterates that they will only sign the right players and are “not stubborn”.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists that his current team can get the job done and that they are “not stubborn” about signing new players.
were soundly beaten by Brighton last weekend as they lost 3-0 at the Amex with Klopp describing his team’s performance as the worst he has overseen since taking over as manager.
Despite coming only short of a quadruple last season with them winning two domestic cups, Liverpool has had an abysmal season so far, sitting 9th at the table with a 10-point disparity between them and the top 4 places.
The Reds have signed Cody Gakpo from PSV for £44million but as of now will not sign any new players just because of bad results. The German tactician grew frustrated when he was asked about any new potential signings for Liverpool, saying:
"It must be a language issue that you ask this question again and again,"
"We look outside. It's not that we are stubborn and think we will go with these boys until 2050. That's not how we see it, it's all about what you can do and what you want to do.
"It's always each year the same. It should be boring from your side, the transfer window in each press conference. Whoever comes from your agency asks this question.
"I cannot change my answers. If the solutions for us are out there, available and doable, of course we would bring in players to help.
"But we have an existing squad as well, and we are underperforming definitely. But I cannot sit here all the time and blame everybody else, it's my responsibility that they perform.
"That's my first concern. Yes we have limited options, but we have players with a contract here, they are just unavailable.
"If they are all in, it's a different situation. Our squad is not too small. Yes, we have to strengthen, but is this the right moment for us to [sign a player]? I can't see it."
Speaking about theWolves
match they have coming up on Wednesday, Klopp said:
"We go as strong as we can, but it always depends on the situation we're in. Not all of the players who played the last game are available now, for different reasons.
"Yes, we'll make changes. We want to win the game so we obviously need fresh legs.
"The easy thing for me is to tell the boys, 'you put us in a situation with the game at Brighton, let's see how you can get us out of that.' But I just can't do that."
