Jurgen Klopp admits Liverpool transfers ‘don’t leave much room for failure’Jurgen Klopp has reiterated that Liverpool must respect their financial limits when conducting their business in the transfer market.

Fans called for more reinforcements in the middle of the park.

There have also been calls for a defensive commitment, with Ibrahima Konate’s injury only adding to concerns over deficiencies in that area of the pitch of his side’s move to Newcastle.

Klopp admitted the club were unable to match the financial clout of some rivals and that there was ‘not much room for failure’ at the market.

“We have our situation. There was a year where money was less of an issue because Phil [Coutinho] went to Barcelona and we were able to make two sensational transfers,” Klopp told outlets like Echo.

“But we always go through the years where we have to improve.” Since I’ve been here, we have to [live within our means].

The club had to do it and that obviously doesn’t make things any easier. “The problem isn’t our situation, it’s just compared to the other main teams.

We have to be strong. That’s the point. There isn’t much room for failure. “I want to improve the team, I absolutely want it.

But I have all the information around me and I know what’s possible and what’s not possible, and that’s not always exactly what I want.

Ther are growing concern among supporters that Liverpool may be running out of options due to the threat of injury.

2020/21 season saw the Reds defense take a major blow, prompting the likes of Nat Phillips, Rhys Williams and Fabinho to replace him at centre-back.

Injuries in midfield also hampered the team last season when Liverpool exited the Champions League for the first time since 2016.

Comments about the relative lack of money are unlikely to please fans, given the club signed a £110m deal with Brighton for Moises Caicedo just two weeks ago.

The deal to bring Endo to the club is said to be worth around £16.25m, indicating the money remains available if the right opportunities arise.

Liverpool will do any further business before the September 1 deadline remains to be seen, but fans will be keen to see some movement as soon as possible.
