Jurgen Kloppsays he can’t wait until the transfer window closes – and admits he is stunned by the “obsession” surrounding potential new signings. According to Liverpooecho.
The Liverpool boss, speaking at a press conference ahead of his side’s EFL Cup match with Burton Albion on Tuesday, was asked whether he had plans to enter the market before the window closes on August 31.
But, just as he had at Burnley on Saturday, Klopp produced a frustrated response.
“I really wait for the day when finally the transfer window is closed, because I can’t believe how obsessed you all are with this,” he said.
“You don’t believe for a second in improvement on the training pitch. I understand that Arsenal was not a perfect game – we scored four so obviously we can score goals, but we conceded three so obviously we have a defensive problem.
“Then we play at Burnley, we have 81% possession but cannot score a goal so now you can say we need another striker if you want. It makes sense that we think about these things apart from the results.
“I’ve said always, up until August 31 everything is possible because these things can happen, but in this moment it’s not that we have a main thing to, or a preferred position to make signings. We are very professional, very clear and always working.
“There is nothing more to say about this, what will happen we will see. I don’t know in this moment, but we don’t have a preferred position for transfers.”
