Jurgen Klopp admits there are times he would like to take more ‘risks’ in the transfer market – but accepts Liverpool’s financial constraints.
The club are still looking for a midfielder before Thursday’s deadline, but availability and price have so far proved problematic in their search.
Liverpool have pledged to complete deals potentially worth around £100m from revenue this summer, but up to £70m will be clawed back from sales.
When asked if he felt he had been sufficiently supported by the owners of Fenway Sports Group, Klopp replied: “What does ‘supported’ mean?
“What I don’t like is if I say now, I’m not sure, then you make a big deal out of it. It was always like that. Was it always easy? No Do we discuss this stuff in public? No, so why would we start now?
“Let me put it like this; from time to time, I would be willing to risk a little more, but it’s not me who decides, and then that’s good. I am like this; we try everything until someone tells us we can’t do it, and then I don’t think for a second.
“Let’s go from there, make something special out of this team, a great team. We had some problems but we will really try to get everything out of this season.
