Liverpool Fans Are Furious Over Jurgen Klopp's January Transfer Window Comments

While they may have come within a couple of games of winning four trophies last season, you would be well within your rights to question Liverpool's transfer strategy over the last couple of years.

Once lauded as the most intelligent team in world football when it came to recruitment, the way they have approached reshaping their squad since their Premier League title win has left a lot to be desired. There have been some very good signings, with the likes of Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota, Ibrahima Konate, and Thiago Alcantara all proving to be valuable additions to the squad.

However, the way in which they have neglected the midfield is now coming back to bite them. The club have signed only one senior midfielder in the last four years, the aforementioned arrival of Thiago in the summer of 2020.

Since then, they have relied on the same players that led them to numerous trophies in 2019 and 2020, despite their waining powers.

This season it has become obvious that a major overhaul is needed in the middle third. Their issues in that area of the pitch have resulted in some incredibly poor form, with their place in the top four now very much under threat.

For those hoping Liverpool would address the issue in January, they look set to be disappointed.

Jurgen Klopp says further January signings are unlikely

Liverpool have dipped into the transfer market this month. They signed Dutch winger Cody Gakpo for a fee of around £37million, with many of their supporters assuming that further incomings would follow. That now appears as though it won't be the case.


Speaking at his press conference ahead of the game against Brighton tomorrow, Jurgen Klopp said that the money isn't there for more signings in this window.

I don't think so. I talk about it because you ask but my job is to use the boys we have. No problem.

I like the teams who line up. We cannot solve all problems in the transfer market. In a dreamland you just buy players...

I've had 6,000 press conferences at Liverpool, I have to tell you again the money story?

Why could it be the reason we have money like crazy and we still don't buy players? You know the answer!

It's not that we have so much money we don't know what to do with but we think 'ah we don't need anyone'.

It's just not that easy, we cannot sort the problems [in the window] with injuries.

These comments will not go down well with Liverpool fans.

The club have recorded record income over the last couple of seasons, meaning a shortage of funds should not be an issue when you consider how much they have spent in recent times.


Considering that the midfield was clearly the biggest problem in the team, the decision essentially blowing their January budget on another winger should also be questioned.

In all, these comments have been about as welcome as you would have expected.


Liverpool will travel to take on Brighton tomorrow afternoon, before going to Wolves in an FA Cup replay in midweek.

Should they fail to perform once again in those fixtures, you can expect the dissenting voices within the fan base to get even louder.
