Liverpool FC managing director promises Jurgen Klopp summer transfer kitty
Billy Hogan underlines the importance of continued investment in the Liverpool FC squad
Liverpool FC will back Jurgen Klopp in the summer transfer, according to the club’s managing director Billy Hogan.
The Reds have impressed in the Premier League this season after Klopp made some significant improvements to his squad last summer.
Liverpool FC recruited Fabinho in a £39m deal from AS Monaco before Xherdan Shaqiri swapped Stoke for Anfield in a cut-price £13.5m transfer.
Naby Keita linked up with his new Liverpool FC team-mates after the Merseyside outfit agreed a £48m deal with RB Leipzig in 2017.
The biggest signing came in August when Liverpool FC finally addressed their goalkeeper headache with the £67m addition of AS Roma shot-stopper Alisson Becker.
Alisson and Fabinho have played key roles in their title push, while Keita and Shaqiri have contributed with some cameo performances and vital goals.
Liverpool FC spent £173m in last summer’s transfer window, having invested £75m in Virgil van Dijk in January 2018.
The five-time European champions have also invested significant funds into revamping the Main Stand at Anfield.
But the club’s manager director Hogan has reassured Liverpool FC supporters that Klopp will receive significant backing in the summer despite the recent investment.
“That represents a significant investment into the non-playing side and that is a great indication of where we are as a club, both on and off the pitch,” Hogan is quoted as saying by Liverpool Echo.
“From our perspective, what you are seeing is a continuation of that performance on the pitch and the reinvestment in the squad, which is the most important thing from our point of view; nothing is a distraction from putting a successful team on the pitch.
“Putting Jurgen and the guys on the football side in a position to compete at the highest levels, that is always our focus and we see our contribution to that in the form of being able to run the business in a better way and being able to drive revenues to invest back into the team.”
Liverpool FC didn’t sign any players in the January transfer window earlier this year.
