How Transfer Policy Is Shaped At Liverpool Is A Big Surprise – Klopp

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp spoke publicly about his frustration at the club's failure to sign a new defender earlier in the transfer window.

And Jamie Redknapp believes the Reds boss could be Bayern Munich bound.

The former Anfield midfielder admits that the German’s recent gripes about how transfer policy is shaped at the club came as a big surprise.

Redknapp doesn’t feel that Klopp’s five-year reign at the club is coming to an imminent end – but he does accept that returning home to coach the biggest club in the Bundesliga may eventually become too tempting to resist.

Redknapp said: “I thought Jurgen’s words were really interesting.

“I sensed frustration with him because he wanted a new player. The problem was who could Liverpool buy to replace Virgil Van Dijk?

“You can’t spend £50-60million on a player knowing that in April your best player is coming back from injury. It could cause more problems than it’s worth.

“I was surprised to hear what Jurgen said – and maybe in a couple of years, he might want to leave to manage someone like Bayern Munich.

“I think there was a sense of frustration with him, but once Liverpool get their best players back at the end of the season I am sure he will be fine.”
