Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool are unable to spend money like Man City and PSG Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool are unable to spend money like Man City and PSG Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool are unable to spend money like Man City and PSG

Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool are not in a position to compete financially with the champions Manchester City and European rivals Paris Saint-Germain.

Pep Guardiola has shelled out more than £500m on players in his two years at City, while Liverpool have spent roughly £300m in the same period.

The only addition to Liverpool's squad this summer has been Dutch youngster Sepp van den Berg, and Klopp has reiterated he does not expect to do any major business in this window.

"We are pretty relaxed in that, we will see what's coming up," Klopp told Liverpool's website.

"How I said, it will not be the biggest transfer window of LFC; we invested a lot in the team in the last two years, I would say. We cannot spend every year in the same manner.

"People talk about it like, 'now another £300m or £200m'. There are maybe only two clubs in the world - it looks in the moment like Barcelona and (Real) Madrid can do the same - (Manchester) City and PSG that can do it every year.

"But we are fine. I'm happy with the team, we are really happy.

"We have to see if we find maybe one position, if we find something for it, but there's no real pressure because it's not about signing a player. We have solutions for all the situations.

"I'm really looking forward to the season, it will be really exciting again."

Klopp has been handed a boost by Andy Robertson declaring himself fit to play on Liverpool's three-game tour to the United States.

The Liverpool left-back underwent a minor surgical procedure on his right hand after picking up an infection but says he is raring to go for Friday night's clash with Borussia Dortmund.

"It's up to the gaffer but I think I'm ready for Friday," Robertson said.

"We'll soon find out! But in terms of my hand, I can just wrap it up and go for it, so I'm good to go."

Sturridge fined and banned until July 31

Liverpool FC on Sky Sports - Thu, 07/18/2019 - 12:03
Regulatory Commission ruled that Sturridge had provided his brother with "inside information" over bet regarding his transfer

Last Updated: 18/07/19 2:42pm

3:04 Sky Sports News' chief reporter Bryan Swanson explains all the detail behind Daniel Sturridge's ban and fine for breaching FA betting regulations. Sky Sports News' chief reporter Bryan Swanson explains all the detail behind Daniel Sturridge's ban and fine for breaching FA betting regulations.

Daniel Sturridge has been fined £75,000 and banned from playing football until July 31 after being found guilty of breaching the FA's gambling regulations.

Sturridge has been given a six-week ban, four of which have been suspended until August 31, 2020, meaning he is free to play football again from July 31 in the event he commits no further breaches of FA's guidelines.

The Regulatory Commission investigation found that the former England international had instructed his brother, Leon, to bet on a possible move by him to La Liga side Sevilla.

The Commission also found that, in issuing that instruction, Sturridge had provided his brother with inside information for that purpose.

The FA respectfully disagrees with the Regulatory Commission's findings and will be appealing against the charges which were dismissed and the sanction which was imposed.

Summary of FA's written reasons:
  • proceedings lasted more than 15 months
  • Independent panel received more than 3,500 pieces of evidence, including many WhatsApp conversations involving Daniel Sturridge and family members
  • In summary, The FA believed this was a "family affair" - with each individual playing a role
  • Charges strongly disputed by Sturridge
  • £13,755 wagered by those connected directly or indirectly to Sturridge, returning £10,762
  • Some bets refused by betting operators
  • Had they been accepted, however, and had they been successful, these bets would have returned a further £317,000
  • Some of the panel's findings have been redacted, usually to protect sensitive personal information not in the public interest
  • Panel: "Mr Sturridge faced a number of significant challenges, both personally and professionally, during January 2018 and was under considerable strain as a result."
  • FA not happy and appealing the nine charges that were dismissed and overall length of ban
  • FA felt a sanction of any shorter duration than six months would wholly fail to reflect the gravity of the case

In response to the verdict Sturridge issued a statement that said: "I am grateful to the panel for the time and consideration given to my case. I would also like to thank my family, friends and legal representatives for the support they have given me throughout the past very tough 15 months.

"I am pleased that nine of the 11 charges were dismissed and that the panel found me to be an honest and credible witness, and that my actions on one particularly difficult day were out of character.

"The case was heard over seven days by a distinguished panel, which resulted in a lengthy and carefully considered decision, and followed an extensive investigation by The FA.

"It is therefore extremely disappointing to hear that the FA will be appealing this decision. I will continue to defend the case and the appeal.

"I am training hard and fully focused on the upcoming football season."

Клопп: «Брюстер должен быть готов к Премьер-лиге»

ЛиверпульФК ру - Thu, 07/18/2019 - 12:02

Босс "Красных" считает, что Риан Брюстер сможет проявить себя в грядущем сезоне в составе Ливерпуля.

Молодой нападающий "Красных" отметился тремя забитыми мячами в двух товарищеских матчах этого лета, поразив ворота Транмира и Брэдфорда.

И Юрген Клопп считает, что 19-летний форвард может рассчитывать на место в первой команде "Красных", если будет готов к уровню конкуренции в Премьер-лиге.

"Вы знаете, как это бывает в футболе, сейчас у нас предсезонная подготовка, а Риан всё ещё очень молодой игрок, - сказал Клопп официальному сайту клуба. - Мы многое ожидаем от него, он многое ожидает от нас, я многое ожидаю от него. Это хорошо, это очень хорошо".

"Но Премьер-лига - это Премьер-лига, и мы должны убедиться, что он готов к этому. Мы думаем, что он готов, но мы должны увидеть, как часто и когда именно. Он был травмирован в течение долгого времени. Риан фантастический футболист, мы упорно боролись, чтобы получить его, а затем сохранить в команде и всё такое".

"Теперь он здесь, и я думаю, он знает о том, что у него будет шанс. Он исключительный парень и игрок, и я взволнован его будущим, но он не нуждается в дополнительном давлении. Все мы сосредоточены, все парни находятся под давлением, и он не должен оказаться под давлением с нашей стороны".

"Думаю, Риан может справиться с этим, потому что он очень уверенный в себе игрок, но чтобы стать настоящим нападающим в Премьер-лиге, вы должны упустить шанс перед 50 000 зрителей, услышать гул, почувствовать важность этого момента, а затем, оказавшись в похожей ситуации, использовать этот шанс иначе".

Jurgen Klopp lays bare what Rhian Brewster needs to become “big gun” of Liverpool attack

ThisIsAnfield.com - Thu, 07/18/2019 - 11:42

Rhian Brewster has been an early pre-season success, but there’s a long way to go before he’s a regular for Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp has high hopes, though, and has relayed exactly when we might find out Brewster’s true level.


A couple of smart, close-range finishes against Tranmere and another against Bradford mean that the teenage striker currently has the minor honour of being pre-season’s top scorer for the Reds.

It’s a step-up to come now, however, in terms of opposition level: Borussia Dortmund, Sevilla and Sporting CP are more like the class of team Liverpool face on a week-to-week basis than their previous friendly opponents.

Here we may begin to see which of the younger players are ready to step up on a more regular basis, but given Daniel Sturridge‘s departure it’s up front—along with left-back—that the most immediate opportunity to break through appears to be.

Klopp has dismissed any notion of putting massive expectations on what Brewster can achieve this season, instead pointing to the moments which will show exactly where he is with his progress.

“You know how it is in football, it’s pre-season, he’s still very young,” Klopp told LiverpoolFC.com.

“The thing is, the Premier League is the Premier League and we need to make sure he is ready for that. We think he is ready, to be honest, but we have to see when and how often and stuff like this.

“He was injured for a long time. He is a fantastic footballer, we fought really hard for getting him and then keeping him and all that stuff. Now he is here and I think he sees the chance, the chance is there and that’s very good.

“He is an exceptionally good boy and player and I am really excited about the future, but there is not pressure at all on him.

“The big guns are not in and we are all focused and the boys and stuff like that, but don’t put pressure on him.

“I think he can deal with it because he is a really confident boy, but to be a real Premier League striker you have to miss a chance in front of 50,000, hear the noise, feeling the importance and then if you go again, you have a good chance to be a really big gun.”

It’s interesting to note Klopp’s take on events: it won’t be the goals that show Brewster is ready, but his reactions to the misses.

Therein lies perhaps the gap between technically ready and mentally ready for senior action: can the youngsters handle the exasperation of the crowd, the knowledge that their mistakes really matter in these matches, that millions of peoples’ happiness around the world hinge on their pass, their save, their finish?

It sounds over the top to state it in such fashion, but on such moments do swings of emotion, memories and silverware—the reason for existence for the club—hang; the between the heartache of Kyiv and the glory of Madrid.

Brewster absolutely has the technical ability to make the grade—it’s just down to timing, and Klopp’s decisions, as to when he’s truly ready to compete as a first-team regular.

If his mentality and maturity shown during contract negotiations and battling back from a long-term injury are anything to go by, it won’t be long at all before he’s on the scoresheet at Anfield.

FA оштрафовала и дисквалифицировала Старриджа

LiverpoolFC ru - Thu, 07/18/2019 - 11:17

Футбольная ассоциация Англии признала виновным экс-нападающего "Красных" Дэниеля Старриджа в нарушении правил на ставки.

Старридж получил шестинедельную дисквалификацию и будет обязан выплатить 75 000 фунтов стерлингов, утверждает The Guardian.

Ранее FA обвинила 29-летнего нападающего в нарушении одиннадцати пунктов правил на ставки, однако независимая комиссия, разбиравшаяся с делом Старриджа с февраля 2019 года, посчитала доказанными только два пункта.

В официальном заявлении футбольной ассоциации указано: "Господин Старридж в январе 2018 года попросил своего брата Леона сделать ставку на его возможный переход в испанскую Севилью. Независимая комиссия установила, что Дэниел Старридж предоставил инсайдерскую информацию своему родственнику именно с этой целью".

В результате экс-форвард "Красных" был оштрафован на 75 000 фунтов стерлингов и получил шестинедельную дисквалификацию, из которых четыре недели являются отложенным наказанием. Таким образом, нападающий может принимать участие в матчах уже с 31 июля.

Напомним, что в данный момент Старридж всё ещё остаётся без клуба после истечения его контракта с Ливерпулем в конце июня.

Jürgen Klopp on James Milner: 'I'm blessed to manage him'

LiverpoolFC.TV - Thu, 07/18/2019 - 10:50

James Milner’s enduring excellence means Liverpool’s vice-captain remains an invaluable resource for Jürgen Klopp.

The upcoming campaign represents the fifth of Milner’s Anfield career and the No.7, now 33 years old, has looked as fit as ever in the early weeks of pre-season.

The Reds’ friendly wins over Tranmere Rovers and Bradford City that preceded their tour of the United States both featured impressive 45-minute run-outs from Milner, who netted twice at Valley Parade last Sunday.

And Klopp has explained why the Champions League-winning midfielder’s influence is of vital importance to his squad, both on and off the pitch.

Inside Training | Behind the scenes in the USA

“There have not been many,” the boss told Liverpoolfc.com in Indiana, when asked if he has ever worked with a player of Milner’s ilk before.

“I was blessed to have a few players like this; Sebastian Kehl, for example, at Dortmund was a more experienced player in a very young team and was a leader in that team, like Millie is. And I think Millie improved his football a lot in the last two or three years as well. 

“His attitude is outstanding. Millie is a sports guy, in each sport he is doing he is brilliant. Without Millie it wouldn’t have been possible. His kind of a little bit dirty dressing-room talks, I cannot do, these things you say in the dressing room that I am not allowed to say in public. That’s the last little kick and that’s nice. 

“We have so many leaders in the team: Hendo of course, Millie of course, Gini, Virg, all these guys, they are in a different way all leaders. They know what to do and they will know it for a new season. 

“Millie looks again in the pre-season like [he’s in] in his early 20s; but he isn’t, he knows that, and we try to respect that. But he is not only in the game not really stoppable, in training it’s the same. All good.”

Клопп предсказал Брюстеру большое будущее

MyLiverpool.ru - Thu, 07/18/2019 - 10:45

Этим летом 19-летний футболист трижды забивал соперникам «Ливерпуля» в двух предсезонных играх.

Клопп воодушевлен прогрессом Брюстера, особенно потому, что он долгое время обходится без долговременных травм, которые ранее его преследовали.

«Вы знаете, как обстоят дела в футболе, это предсезонный период, и он еще очень молод, – сказал менеджер ЛФК. – У него есть ожидания, у меня есть ожидания, и это очень хорошо».

«Дело в том, что Премьер-лига – это Премьер-лига, и мы должны убедиться, что он готов к этому. Мы думаем, что он готов, если честно, но мы должны посмотреть, когда и как часто (сможем его использовать – прим. ред.), и тому подобное».

«Он был травмирован в течение длительного времени. Он фантастический футболист, мы изо всех сил боролись за то, чтобы получить его, а затем сохранить его. Теперь он здесь, и я думаю, что он видит шанс, шанс у него есть, и это очень хорошо».

«Он исключительно хороший парень и игрок, и я с оптимизмом смотрю в будущее, но на него не оказывается никакого давления».

«Я думаю, что он может справиться с этим, потому что он действительно уверенный в себе парень, но чтобы быть настоящим нападающим Премьер-лиги, вы должны упустить шанс перед 50 000 зрителей, услышать шум, почувствовать важность, а затем, если вы пойдете туда снова, у вас есть хороший шанс стать действительно «смертельным оружием»».

Robbo vs. Trent, round 2: Assist competition returns and a new Reds mentality

ThisIsAnfield.com - Thu, 07/18/2019 - 10:30

One of the more lighthearted highlights of last season was the ongoing battle for assists supremacy between Liverpool’s brilliant full-backs—and that competition will be back for 2019/20.


Andy Robertson surging down the left; Trent Alexander-Arnold flying down the right.

The twin threat of the Reds in attacking the flanks was a factor many teams failed to deal with last season, culminating in a succession of chances being delivered by clever passes, overlapping runs, cutbacks and wicked crosses.

Despite the Reds not exactly having big target men up front, so good were the accuracy on some of the duo’s deliveries that close-range headers or finishes were often seen throughout the season from the likes of Mo Salah or Bobby Firmino.

It emerged during the course of 18/19 that the full-backs had a friendly, but competitive, bet on as to who could secure the most assists—and while Robertson took a healthy lead for much of the campaign, Trent finished the year in “unbelievable” form to pip his team-mate, 12-11 in Premier League assists.

Robbo says they’ve already spoken about repeating it this year, and while personal pride might make him want to win this time out, it’s all about helping the team perform to the max.

“We’ve had a brief discussion over it. We’ll set it up again,” Robertson said to the club website.

“Probably too much was made of it but for me and Trent it brought the best out of us, the numbers we both produced. Near the back end of the season he was unbelievable with the numbers he produced.

“I feel it brought the best out of both of us. If we can do that and get similar numbers this season, of course it helps the team. That’s what both of us want to do.

“But first and foremost we want to just put in the same performances we put in last season and try to kick on even further.”

Along with Virgil van Dijk, Gini Wijnaldum and Jordan Henderson, the two full-backs have only just returned to pre-season training after an extended break.

Once fit and firing and the action kicks off, Robertson says it’ll be different this year after winning: no longer are the Reds driven by not wanting to repeat the heartache of Kyiv, but instead by wanting to repeat the feeling of being on top of the world—or, more specifically, on top of a bus.

“That’s what we’ve got to use as motivation now – the winning feeling we had.

“Last season was completely different, we used the disappointment and heartbreak of losing as motivation to not be in that position again. That’s probably why we had so many last-minute winners, big comebacks and things like that.

“This season we need to use that feeling of being on that bus and lifting that trophy to drive us forward. We want more of that feeling. That’ll be in all our minds for the season ahead.”

If the Reds are in the running for major honours ten months from now, it’s a safe bet that the duo will have played a huge part in creating the goals to fire Liverpool toward more success.

Klopp: There's expectations but no pressure for Rhian Brewster

LiverpoolFC.TV - Thu, 07/18/2019 - 10:00

Jürgen Klopp predicts a bright future for Rhian Brewster, but has explained why expectations should be tempered as the striker takes his fledgling steps in senior football.

The 19-year-old has struck three times in two pre-season games so far this summer, following up a brace at Tranmere Rovers with a poacher’s effort agains Bradford City on Sunday.

Klopp is encouraged by Brewster’s progress so far, particularly as he has overcome a long-term injury absence; however, the manager wants him to be allowed to develop with no pressure on his shoulders.

“You know how it is in football, it’s pre-season, he’s still very young,” the boss told Liverpoolfc.com in the United States. “He has expectations, I have expectations. He has expectations and that’s good, it’s absolutely good.

“The thing is, the Premier League is the Premier League and we need to make sure he is ready for that. We think he is ready, to be honest, but we have to see when and how often and stuff like this.

“He was injured for a long time. He is a fantastic footballer, we fought really hard for getting him and then keeping him and all that stuff. Now he is here and I think he sees the chance, the chance is there and that’s very good.

“He is an exceptionally good boy and player and I am really excited about the future, but there is not pressure at all on him.

“The big guns are not in and we are all focused and the boys and stuff like that, but don’t put pressure on him. I think he can deal with it because he is a really confident boy, but to be a real Premier League striker you have to miss a chance in front of 50,000, hear the noise, feeling the importance and then if you go again, you have a good chance to be a really big gun.”
