Jurgen Klopp’s unique transfer policy was something heavily discussed upon the German’s arrival at Liverpool and we have already seen his highly praised approach pay off.
The German hadn’t been known to regularly spend big money on players in the past which is why his decision to buy Sadio Mane from Southampton for upwards of £30 million and Georginio Wijnaldum from Newcastle for £25 million caused a few eye brows to be raised.
Doubts have very quickly proven to be pointless though with all of Klopp’s signings seemingly justifying their hefty price tags in quick time.
In his column for the Daily Mail, Jamie Carragher said: “His net transfer spend since arriving at Anfield is £6.46m, compared to Manchester City’s £151.27m in the same period.”
Klopp has shown a valuable focus towards quality over quantity which has seen the German both spend wisely and allow players to leave wisely. He has transformed an uncertain and mixed squad of players into a highly competitive and extremely promising group.
His ability to identify a system he wanted to work with and then go and find a way to fit new and old players to this system is testament to how good a manager he really is.
