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.

Klopp really thinks that those money will go into his summer funds? All of us remember what happened last season— Vinnyy (@WolfbaneKelvin) November 4, 2021
Great, so just to earn money we'll end up repeating last year's mistakes. We lost Jota last year to such matches, why is the manager being forced to think about financial aspects rather than player fitness😅— kazza (@kazzafan400) November 4, 2021
