LIVERPOOL boss Jurgen Klopp insists clubs like Manchester United can spend as much they like on players – and he does not care.
When asked if Jose Mourinho’s transfer spend since 2004 – over £850million – made him jealous, Klopp replied: “I said something about this and it was misunderstood.
“I don’t care how much money another club can spend. Absolutely not one second of my life.
“And I am completely fine with what we could spend and what we did in the summer.
“Having more money or all the money in the world is not in my dreams for the manager’s job.
“I am completely fine with the situation we have here. It’s not a competition. It’s not that you win the league before the season.
“You have a team without spending money and you have a team with spending a lot of money.
“Everybody has their own possibilities, their own ideas. I am happy with our possibilities.
“We did what we did because we thought it was right for us.
“If other teams have another strategy or another idea, they do what they think is right.”
United boss Jose Mourinho has splashed £145million on Paul Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Eric Bailly.
In fact he has spent a staggering £883.8m on players since he first arrived in the Premier League at Chelsea in 2004.
