Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool boss 'doesn't care' about transfer criticism

Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool boss 'doesn't care' about transfer criticism

Ewood Park on Thursday night and it is not only updates on Alisson's world-record move to Anfield that is enthralling thousands of Liverpool fans in the Darwen End stand.

Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp admitted he has changed his mind over spending big money on transfers and "doesn't care" about the criticism.

Two years ago, Jürgen Klopp was scathing of the transfer of Paul Pogba to Manchester United.

Liverpool just arrived in the US for the first of their three International Champions Cup fixtures stateside as they take on Borussia Dortmund on Sunday.

"I think they are three guys who are going to entertain the fans and give us an very bad lot this campaign".

So, too, do Manchester City and Manchester United, who Liverpool will face in the final games of their U.S. tour. It's only an opinion in that moment, and did I change my opinion? You always want to have the best, but building the group is necessary to be successful.

The purchase of Alisson took Liverpool's spending in the last 12 months to nearly £250 million, but Klopp was keen to point out that the number one priority is improving his side on the pitch.

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

"He has a contract at Dortmund, no?"

Klopp said: "Whatever people say and bring it up again and again, I have had worse days in my life and worse things happen to me". I think it will improve me as a player. Obviously he is a world-class goalkeeper, so we are not going to say: 'let's have a look.' He will play, of course. That was really good.

Origi, a son to former Harambee Stars global skipper Mike Okoth, had a disappointing campaign last season that was punctuated with a loan spell at German side VfL Wolfsburg.

He knows critics will be lining up should Liverpool wobble at any stage and it is how they deal with the hard moments that will determine what they can achieve. For this, there's still space for development.

"Everybody knows that Fabinho is a great midfielder, and from what I've seen of Naby in training, he's just incredible!" And he doesn't believe the physicality of the league will be a problem for him. "We did our business and Dortmund is doing their business, so all good". That's completely normal.' What is also normal is the rising pressure on Klopp.
