Liverpool

Liverpool fans on Twitter are all absolutely raving about the club’s transfer spending

The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have been reacting to figures that show their club’s net spend since 2014, and it’s a positive sight for our resident Reds. The club has spent a total of just £18 million in four years, despite recently forking out big money for the transfers of Virgil Van Dijk, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mohamed Salah this season. 

Jurgen Klopp has been at the helm at Liverpool since October 2015 and has been responsible for a number of big signings in his time at Anfield. However, the eccentric German has done a superb job in balancing the books for the Merseysiders. Despite the spending power that Liverpool have, Klopp has found cost-effective ways of improving the squad with the sale of Philippe Coutinho going a long way to help the club’s finances.

Being a manager of top European club in the current footballing climate is very expensive. Modern managers have to deal with sums of money that are unimaginable to the everyday football fan, adding another dynamic to an already stressful job. That’s where Klopp is underestimated by many, his ability to keep the club out of enormous debt whilst continually improving has seen his side become more about the collective than any individual, despite Mo Salah’s recent brilliance. Klopp’s work is paying off on the field too, as the Kopites are now just two wins away from their sixth Champions League/European Cup title.

Taking that into account, here’s our resident Reds’ verdict on their club’s net spend:
