Liverpool will play a lot on Sunday in the great English football classic that will play at Old Trafford against Manchester United. Five days from the end of the Premier League, the ‘reds’ occupy sixth place, 4 points behind the Champions League positions marked by Chelsea, fourth.
Regardless of the result and whether Liverpool, the 2019 European champions, will gain access to the next edition of the Champions League, Jürgen Klopp believes that the outcome of the season will not affect too much his transfer planning or player renewal negotiations.
“Obviously playing in the Champions League is huge, especially from the club’s financial point of view. It is not good if we do not succeed, “Klopp admitted today at the press conference prior to Manchester United-Liverpool. “But no, I don’t think anything will change because the situation was difficult before and it will be difficult afterwards. Football is in a difficult situation. I don’t think this will change ”.
The German coach is aware that he will have a limited budget to reinforce his staff due to the impact that the Covid-19 pandemic has had on Liverpool’s accounts, which on Monday announced losses of 50 million euros on the balance sheet closed in May 2020.
