Jurgen Klopp admits Liverpool could still be at the mercy of Barcelona and Real Madrid for some of their leading stars in the transfer market.
Jurgen Klopp has dismissed claims that Liverpool have become the best team in the world and reinforced his demand for more collective improvement.
We are not the world’s best…yet’ .
This thing with ‘the best team in the world’ — I don’t really get it,’ said Klopp. ‘It’s nice when people say it. It’s better than if they say you are the worst in the world, obviously. Usually, if people mention ‘best team in the world’, you think of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City, stuff like this.
The team we have is about attitude — go and go and go — mixed with really good football players. We are for sure more critical of our performances. (People) only see the results, which are exceptional — we don’t see ourselves as the best in the world.
Jurgen Klopp admitted success helped Champions League titleholders Liverpool attract players, but it also made completing signings harder.
