Liverpool Fans Are Not Happy With Jurgen Klopp's 'Money' Comments After Atletico Madrid Champions League Win

Liverpool fans have taken issue with Jurgen Klopp's comments about "money" being the reason he might not be rotating his squad for the two final Champions League games.

The Reds beat 10-man Atletico Madrid 2-0 at Anfield last night, with first-half strikes from Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane sealing qualification to the knockout stages.

Klopp was asked whether he would make some changes to his starting XI for fixtures against Porto and AC Milan but said the fact the Champions League is the most lucrative competition could force his hand.

Klopp told BT Sport: "You earn a lot of money to win Champions League games! The first target was to get through this group. But we did it with two games to go. What can we do? We will have to see.”

Liverpool will be playing a ridiculous nine matches in 27 days but it seems the financial elements are too big and will lead Klopp fielding his strongest side featuring Mo Salah and co.

After all, a win in the Champions League is said to bring £2.4 million pounds in prize money, with the figure dropping to £800,000 for a draw.

Still, some fans are not best-pleased with what Klopp had to say given the risk of injuries to key players.


Liverpool face a trip to West Ham on Sunday before the Reds host Arsenal at Anfield on 20 November upon the return of club football.
