Liverpool boss Klopp: We chose Alisson over Oblak

Liverpool boss Klopp: We chose Alisson over Oblak

In the more immediate future, Klopp will come up against Mourinho when Liverpool face Manchester United in a pre-season friendly in MI on Saturday night.

The 20-year-old didn't enjoy a bad first season playing first-team football in the Premier League for Liverpool and he will be thankful for the opportunities given to him by Jurgen Klopp, especially as they wouldn't have been anywhere near as forthcoming had he stayed with Chelsea.

The boss stated that Liverpool's spending would be the record for the current Premier League season and that they must now win a trophy, something they have not been able to do for a long time.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has defended the decision to make Alisson the world's most expensive goalkeeper and revealed he could have opted to sign Atletico Madrid's Jan Oblak for an even bigger fee. "Because the interest rates are very low", Mourinho said (via Sky Sports).

"You, I think have to be fair and now you have to demand and say the team with investments you are making last season, that you made in January, that you make now".




Keita played no part in the win against City and Liverpool said the Guinea worldwide will skip sessions as a "precautionary measure".

One of my biggest goals in life is to make Jose smile - it doesn't happen very often.

'I said a few things [in the past].

'I would never talk about Manchester United unless somebody asks me about it but I am polite enough to give an answer if somebody asks me. I want to do it differently. He's obviously a top defender and it's a great person for me to learn off and emulate. Man United has a strong team and they will strengthen that in the next two weeks.

With the new signings complementing a squad that is already pretty good there will be several players who won't be needed next season and it will be imperative that Klopp offloads them before the campaign gets underway. That's what we try to do but that has to happen on the pitch, not in the transfer market. "The day that this is football, I'm not in a job any more".
