Klopp responds to selling club claims


Jurgen Klopp appears to be baffled by a recent report claiming Liverpool are the biggest selling club in Europe.

The CIES Football Observatory research group had revealed that the Reds had made more money selling players than any other club from the continent’s top leagues, which is easy to believe.

The likes of Luis Suarez and Raheem Sterling have moved on from Anfield for huge price tags in recent years, with the Reds struggling to keep hold of their star men given their lack of Champions League football.

However, whatever the statistics say, Klopp has insisted that there is no selling culture at the Merseyside club.

“Nobody calls and says: ‘come on, sell, we need money,'” he said, as per the Liverpool Echo.

Since his arrival, Liverpool have only really sold players deemed not to be fit for purpose, and they have kept hold of their main men Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge.

Klopp had an extremely busy transfer window – which, he added, he would not like to repeat – but the fact is, Liverpool look in far better shape now than when he took over.
