Liverpool boss admits that Karius nightmare was not the reason in Alisson’s signing

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has admitted that the club would have went for the signing of brazilian goalkeeper Alisson, regardless of what had been the result of UEFA Champions League game.

Karius has a disastrous final in which the Reds lost 3-1.

The manager agreed that Both Karius and Mignolet have been unhappy with Alisson’s signing but the boss will do anything for the club to reach new heights.

Liverpool have signed Alisson for a world-record £65 million (€73m/$85m) fee for a goalkeeper.

In talks with the media reporter the manager said, “If we had won the final and Alisson had been on the market we would have gone for him because we think he is the goalkeeper we want,”

“The other goalkeepers are really good, like our midfielders. It doesn’t mean we tell Fabinho: ‘Sorry, we already have good players we don’t need you’.

“We bring in another one because we think we can make the next step like with Naby [Keita]. We do it and it’s the job.”

He admitted that he didn’t discuss his decision to sign Alisson with any of the Liverpool players.

“Listen, I didn’t walk through the dressing room and tell people that I was signing Fabinho or Naby Keita,” Klopp said.

“I didn’t say before the medical, ‘we are signing a goalkeeper’ and then it’s like, ‘oh!'”

Klopp slammed Sergio Ramos for his tackel which resulted in Mohamed Salah suffer a dislocated shoulder during the Champions League final.

“If you watch it back and you are not with Real Madrid then you think it is ruthless and brutal,” Klopp added.
