Jurgen Klopp: Discusses Liverpool approach

Jurgen Klopp has revealed Liverpool will not buy for the sake of it this month and has also discussed his own future at Anfield.

The German was speaking to fans via Sky Sports’ special Facebook chat and was asked about whether he is actively trying to bolster the Reds squad in January.

“That’s really difficult. If you tell us the right player is available for us we would do it,” Klopp said.

“I’m 100 per cent convinced that you should only do things in the winter that you would do in the summer.

“Everything else solves a problem for a second and a few days later you have another problem.

“You cannot get any player, this team is too strong, this squad is too strong, we need players that make us better.

“Of course sometimes in the season you have hard moments, we have not been that lucky with injuries, losing important players in the wrong moment. That didn’t help but we have to go through it.

“We could have had more players from the beginning of the season but we have not, that is a success. It is all about the group and this group is really good together.”

Klopp was also quizzed on his own Liverpool future, but insisted he is just focusing on the job in hand rather than the bigger picture.

He added: “No, I don’t have (a plan). I feel really happy here, I feel good here. It was clear decision for Liverpool, I’m not signing a contract because I have nothing else to do.

“We are in the perfect place at the moment, that is how we all feel, and that’s why we did it (the extension). There are no long-term plans.”
