"You cannot..." - Jurgen Klopp issues sly Todd Boehly dig while outlining Liverpool's transfer plans

"You cannot..." - Jurgen Klopp issues sly Todd Boehly dig while outlining Liverpool's transfer plans

Klopp has his say.

Jurgen Klopp had a pop at Chelsea owner Todd Boehly as he outlined Liverpool's summer transfer plans.

The Reds have endured a tumultuous season plagued by inconsistent form and injuries.

Liverpool are sitting in seventh in the Premier League table, some seven points adrift of the Champions League spots with just six games remaining.

In turn, the Merseyside club have been tipped to be busy in the summer transfer window, with the midfield in particular a position the club are looking to address.

However, Klopp insisted that the Reds would not sign too many players in the coming months, and cited Chelsea's massive transfer spend as a cautionary tale.

Chelsea are currently languishing in 12th in the Premier League despite spending well over £600million on new recruits across the course of the season. In January alone the Blues brought in eight new faces, including £88million Ukrainian winger Mykhailo Mudryk, and World Cup winning midfielder Enzo Fernandez, who cost a British record £105million.

Klopp 'happy' about Chelsea woes

Klopp admitted he was "happy" that Chelsea were struggling despite their massive transfer outlay.

When asked about Liverpool's transfer plans the German said: "Football is crazy. Everyone expects that if Liverpool are not doing well it means they need five, six, seven players.

"I feel a little bit for Chelsea to be honest, because it's not going well. I think they are a top, top team.

"But it's good to see that you cannot just bring top, top players together and think it works out. You have to build a team.

"And that's what the guys there underestimated, and they obviously gave their coaches an impossible job to do. You cannot have two dressing rooms. You cannot train on two pitches.

"You have to create relationships, you have to create team spirit. And that is the only reason why I'm happy about it because Chelsea will be fine in the end and they'll be incredibly strong next year but I'm using them just as an example that at the highest level, you cannot do it like that.

"We will not do that. You have to bring in the right players and build a new team. This team wrote a sensational story. Now we need to start a new one. That's it."
