Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has blasted Barcelona’s transfer market activity, according to report.
Barcelona is in financial crisis but still went ahead to sign great numbers of players in this summer transfer market which has left a lot of football fans wondering how they manage to pull off those deals, with Klopp no exception to those who were left surprised.
The Liverpool manager says he is surprised by the things the Catalan side is doing in an interview with Kicker.
“I don’t understand it [Barcelona’s spending],” Klopp said. “If you tell me I don’t have money, I don’t spend anything anymore. This happened to me twice in the past with my credit card.
“I’m watching this like a football fan, I don’t understand.”
“The only club I know that once sold the stadium and other rights in advance was Borussia Dortmund,” Klopp added.
“Aki Watzke had to come in at the last second and saved everything, and I don’t know if there is an Aki Watzke at Barcelona.”
Barcelona has been active in the market with the signing of Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha, Jules Kounde and Frank Kessie and the club is still willing to add more players to the club that is already struggling to balance its books.
Manchester City Bernardo Silva, PSG Lionel Messi and numerous right-backs are presently linked with the club.
Barcelona has gone as far as to sell their 4th economic leveller in a bid to raise funds to register players they signed on the eve of their La Liga opener against Rayo Vallecano on Saturday evening except for Kounde.
