Jurgen Klopp: Explains his comments

Jurgen Klopp has welcomed the appointment of Michael Edwards as sporting director, but insisted he still has the “final say” on transfers.

Edwards, 37, has been promoted into a newly-created role as part of a restructuring of the Anfield club’s football operations.

But, Klopp believes that nothing will change as to who ultimately gives the green light to any of Liverpool’s transfer business in the future.

“From my point of view it’s a very natural decision. When you have the right person in the club then you have to use this person in the right way. That’s what we did since I’m here. Transfers are going always the same way,” said Klopp.

“Whoever brings the player, if it’s me or my assistant, then we have a lot of things to watch, to talk about and in the end I have the final say. That’s the most important thing for you to know.

“If something is wrong with transfers it’s my responsibility.

He added: “I say we have to go for this player. Why should I do the talking with agents? We create a structure for future of LFC.

“We try to create a situation where everything around is perfect so if the manager changes then the club still has a good base.

“If someone isn’t happy and asks who player is this? It will always be my player. I won’t be able to blame anyone else.”
