Klopp makes Liverpool transfer declaration on Reds’ approach to future deals
Jurgen Klopp insists Liverpool will continue to do it their way in the transfer window rather than try to match the big spenders.
Manchester City and United look set to splash the cash in this window as they look to catch the champions while Chelsea have already been busy in the market.
But Liverpool have so far just spent £11.75m on left-back Kostas Tsimikas and are not expected to make any huge signings this summer.
Klopp said: “We never had, and will never have, that type of relationship where I go to Mike Gordon and say 'That's the money I need and without that we can not survive'.
“It's about the club. I am clear enough about our situation but that's it.
“There are other clubs that have different policies, obviously, and you have to expect that. But that was the same last year and the year before.
“We all have our individual approaches to situations and our way didn't harm us. I can not change that and I don't want to.
“I knew this was the way it goes when I arrived here and nothing changed since I'm in.
“We have a good team. We talk about motivation and of course that is my job to do as well, and the boys' job, and the supporters as well.
“We can not just bring in five players because people want to be busy with that. Every year was pretty much the same – I don't think I ever bought enough players in a transfer window to satisfy everybody.
“It was always 'Aaargh, we need another one'. But so far it worked out. It doesn't mean it will always work out forever.”
Klopp has also ruled out Liverpool making a move for wantaway Lionel Messi after it was revealed he is quitting Barcelona.

The Kop boss added: “Interest? Who doesn’t want to have Messi in his team? But, no chance.
“The numbers are absolutely not for us. We don’t even have to start thinking about it. It’s all clear, no chance.
“But a good player to be honest.”
