FSG president Mike Gordon has said there will be no changes to the Liverpool transfer strategy.
Some fans had hoped and assumed that an increase in capacity and Anfield would mean more money would be available for players – but according to quotes in the Echo, that will not be the case.
Even though the new Main Stand is expected to produce around an extra £25 million per year, our strategy in the transfer market will remain unchanged.
Gordon says success happens on the pitch, not in the transfer market, and that he is not interested in matching the spending of the likes of Man City and Chelsea. Instead, he thinks Klopp can get the most our of a squad that is already full of talent.
“I worry more about getting the most out of the money that we spend rather than competing in the transfer market on a pound for pound basis,” he said.
“Wins and losses are made here (points to the pitch), not in the transfer market. I’m really happy with the team that we have, the one that we’ve built over the last several years.
“We’ve spent a fair amount of money, and I think we’re going to see that on display this season and in the seasons to come.”
Liverpool were the only club in the league to make a net profit this summer as Klopp made seven signings but sold a lot of deadwood.
