Liverpool: Klopp smashes Chelsea

With more than 330 million euros spent during the transfer window in January, Chelsea pulverized the previous record of the most spending club during this winter period.
In bad shape in the Premier League, the Blues (10th with 29 points) are currently very far from their ambitions at the start of the season. The Champions League is still accessible but it will take a remarkable journey from the London club in the coming months to join the Top 4. At present, Manchester United (4th) has ten points more than Chelsea. In an attempt to turn the tide, the new management invested a mad sum this winter in Enzo Fernandez (121 million euros), Mykhaylo Mudryk (70 million, excluding bonuses), Benoît Badiashile (38 million), Noni Madueke (35 million ), Malo Gusto (30 million), Andrey Santos (12.5 million) and David Datro Fofana (12 million), to which must be added the paying loan of João Félix (11 million).

Klopp sizes up the Blues

Present this Friday in front of the media, Jürgen Klopp tackled the strategy of the London club. “I will not say anything without the presence of my lawyer. I’m joking, but honestly, I don’t know, I don’t understand that part of the business, what it is possible to do or not. They have spent a huge sum in the last two transfer windows. They only signed excellent players. So from that perspective, congratulations. I don’t understand how this can be possible. But it’s not for me to tell you how it works”said the Liverpool coach.

A difficult season also for the Reds

Liverpool, who will travel to Wolverhampton this Sunday on the 22nd day of the Premier League, have no more time to waste this season. Only 9th with the same number of points as Chelsea, the Reds are also very far from their initial ambitions. Jürgen Klopp’s protégés would need a series of victories to get back into the race for Europe.
