Jurgen Klopp: Karius & Mignolet can't be happy after Alisson arrival
Jul 29 2018
The deal means Klopp has spent £255m in the last six months following the club's record-breaking deal for Virgil van Dijk.
Of course, the transfer market has significantly inflated over the past few years and if Klopp is to win silverware at Liverpool, he will have to spend.
"I think if you have the money, if you invest well, is better than to have it in the bank, because the interests are very low!"
Klopp does not like social media, and that's probably why he doesn't use it: "the smartest decision in life was not to use social media", Klopp told ESPN.
"But he could've left for insane money".
"The clause for Oblak for example is €100m (£90m), so nice!"
"Everyone knows Liverpool's weakness has been the goalkeeping position".
Arsenal have already signed five new players this summer, while Chelsea FC have brought in two new faces as both London clubs look to try and challenge for the title or at least break back into the top four next term.
Karius committed two bad errors in the Champions League final against Real Madrid, although he was later revealed to be suffering from concussion after Madrid defender Sergio Ramos "collided" with him.
Speaking on Liverpool's U.S. tour, Klopp said he would have signed Alisson regardless of the Champions League final result and didn't feel like he needed to tell Karius.
1:29 Virgil Van Dijk says the Liverpool squad are capable of competing for both domestic and European honours ahead of the
"We are really fine with our goalkeepers". The Manchester United manager said in a press conference: "Maybe this season finally you demand that they win".
'It's not the reason.
"We bring in another one because we think we can make the next step like with Naby [Keita]".
"Alisson's signing was urgently needed".
And Klopp accepts that there is now more pressure than before on his side to deliver silverware following the hefty spending spree.
"In a final you need to have a bit of luck and we didn't have it". After the season, take it.
"Next World Cup, I'm trying to be there, 100 percent".
"I don't even think it is a mind game, I think it is normal".
When push comes to shove however it seems that the 23-year-old just doesn't have the required quality to become a player capable of being consistently good in the English Premier League.
