Ahead of the big match against fifth-placed Chelsea on Thursday Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has released a transfer notice.
Without Champions League football, the club would fail to “excite” future signings, acknowledged Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.
“The main reason for qualifying for the Champions League is always financial,” Klopp said according to the Goal. “It is a great competition to play in but for the club, it’s about [finances].”
“Sure, you want to excite some players. In the beginning, we were sitting with some players who had offers from clubs who played in the Champions League and it was like ‘ok, sorry, we can only offer nothing or Europa League!’”
“But apart from that, it’s always about finances. This year there is no difference, I would say. I hope people still see we do our absolute best and try everything to make it happen, but we will see how it will end up.”
“It is not that the owners called me and said ‘if you don’t qualify for the Champions League then this or that will happen because we are all together. We all understand the situation. They know we try absolutely everything to qualify for the Champions League again, that’s clear.”
