Liverpool legend questions clubs transfer model

Liverpool were expected to have a busy summer window.

The Reds signed Ibrahim Konate from RB Leipzig to strengthen their defensive options at the club.

They pulled off a comfortable win against Norwich City and Burnley in their last two games.

Club legend Jamie Carragher questions Liverpool’s transfer policy in his latest column for The Telegraph.

“How long can they keep beating the system to challenge for the Premier League and Champions League?

“Another transfer window has passed with Liverpool the 14th-biggest spenders in the country. A year ago they were 10th on that list, having spent less on new players than Sheffield United and Newcastle United.

Carragher added: “With sporting director Michael Edwards delaying extending his contract beyond this season, and Klopp unlikely to stay beyond 2024, many supporters are wondering if Liverpool’s success is despite their business model rather than because of it.

“My belief is that the single biggest influence on Liverpool’s success since 2015 is Klopp.

“We must stress, of course, it was FSG who headhunted and recruited Klopp and Edwards. It was they who sanctioned the record signings of Van Dijk and Alisson, and revolutionised their scouting systems which led to bargains like Salah, Mane, Fabinho and Robertson, ending the 30-year title wait.

“The owners’ commitment over the last decade has rebuilt Liverpool’s structure. But amid the future of key personnel becoming a source of speculation, the FSG era is on the threshold of entering its next key phase.”
