The manager of Liverpool football club, Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he is not in charge of transfers at the club despite being the club’s manager since 2015.
The German tactician said someone else handles transfers at Liverpool while he concentrates on the role of coaching at the club.
Liverpool have been struggling with injuries since the beginning of the 2020-2021 season. Most of their top defenders have been injured since the first part of the season.
Some of the top stars at the club that have been injured since 2020 are: Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, and Diogo Jota. Their absence, especially that of Van Dijk and Gomez, have left a big gap in the team.
Their absence has contributed to the degression of Liverpool. For instance, at the start of the season, Liverpool were looking like the main contender for the Premier League title. They spent the first part of the season occupying the first and sometimes the second spot on the league table. But now, Liverpool are occupying the 4th spot on the league table with 34 points in 19 games.
Liverpool’s form has gotten so bad that the club has not won any Premier League match since the commencement of this year. The reigning Premier League champions have not scored a goal since 2021.
Despite the bad form, Liverpool have been suffering in their last Premier League games, the club has not made any transfer deal since the 2021 January transfer window commenced. This has amazed most fans of the club who have been expecting Liverpool to make announcements of new signings especially defenders. But Jurgen Klopp says it is not his job to recruit new players.
“I cannot decide if we do something in the transfer market or not,” said Klopp. “Of course somebody else is making the decisions. It was always like this.
“We discuss the situation pretty much daily, could we improve something or not and we make recommendations but I cannot spend the money. I never did.
“I don’t want to confuse anybody. I just said what I said.”
Liverpool’s next match is an FA Cup fourth-round game against Manchester United. The game is scheduled to take place on Sunday, at 18:00.
