Keita: I turned down Barça and Bayern for Liverpool

"What do you do, sir?"

Klopp has issued a similar ultimatum to English striker Daniel Sturridge.

His spending spree has drawn criticism from some quarters, however, with some fans choosing to remind Klopp of his comments when Manchester United splashed a World Record £89 million to re-sign Paul Pogba.

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.

Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita is a great admirer of Steven Gerrard and said he always tried to play like him growing up in the streets of Guinea.

"That's a problem, whatever b******t you say, no one will forget it", Klopp told reporters on Saturday. On the other side, it's still kind of true.

Klopp added: "The world has changed completely".


"That is how everybody in football understands it".

"My job is together with [sporting director] Michael Edwards and [co-owner] Mike Gordon to bring the best players who are available for Liverpool - if they fit in. I don't want to prepare anyone for a bad start because I don't want to have one but it is possible, I can not ignore that completely". "Even though I didn't get too much game time, I think the experience I got with the Champions League was definitely a good thing for me".

The Wales worldwide is part of the Liverpool squad in the US for a preseason tour and hopes to use the team's three global Champions Cup matches to catch the eye of his manager.

JOE's Melissa Reddy has penned a detailed account into the workings behind the scenes at Anfield, and one revelation highlights Klopp's belief that he could return the glory days back to Liverpool. The other three are Ousmane Dembele (Borussia Dortmund to Barcelona, £97 million), Kylian Mbappe (Monaco to Paris Saint-Germain, £120 million) and Neymar (Barcelona to PSG, £198 million).

Although his own transfer business is done, Klopp thinks there will be more big deals before the transfer window closes, on 9 August in England, and 31 August across the rest of Europe.

That profit is the ninth highest of all time, £700,000 more than the amount Athletic Bilbao made on defender Aymeric Laporte when they sold him to Pep Guardiola's City for £57.2m in January.
