'Whatever bulls*it you say, no one forgets' - Klopp defends spending comments

Jurgen Klopp

Fast forward two years - and well over £300 million later - Klopp has admitted that he has had a change of opinion.

Although this spells doom for both Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet, it will definitely make up for a good competition to be the best goalkeeper in the Premier League next season. Yes, there were near misses during the reigns Rafa Benitez and Brendan Rodgers, but those exploits have been the exception rather than the rule. He wanted to stay, but it made absolutely no sense.

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina - Ben Woodburn says he is entirely happy to let Jurgen Klopp decide whether he heads out on loan or continues his development around the Liverpool first team this season.

"What's important is that we have another superb footballer in the team".

"You can not be sure in the goalkeeper position", he said.

"The second half without Daniel would have looked completely different".

The need for a goalkeeper was ruthlessly highlighted in the Champions League final in May. As a kid, we used to play wearing a Liverpool shirt in the streets.

Therefore, the arrival of Brazilian stopper Alisson this week from Roma in a £67 million deal comes as little surprise. I am confident we can build on last season.


The Reds remain admirers of the French worldwide, whose Anfield move fell through before the World Cup.

The final piece of the jigsaw?

The revelation that the decision not to take a punt on Alisson three years ago has cost Liverpool a staggering £63million will shock the club and their fans. Supporters are certainly hoping imagine so. When Alisson is ready, he will be in our goal. "He told me what a great club this was and how the team was progressing and had great potential", Keita added.

It is also worth noting that the importance of having a world class goalkeeper is often understated in the media. Then my job is to work with these boys and give them this kind of shape that they can really work together in the best possible way.

But the Liverpool boss thinks he now has the numbers and the quality to freshen up his side whenever he needs to.

That fee eclipses the £35m Manchester City paid Benfica for Ederson last summer.

Liverpool struggled to rotate key players last season when injuries hit key men such as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and the now departed Emre Can.
