Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says he's changed opinion over record transfer fees

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp reveals the start dates for new signings Alisson Becker and Xherdan Shaqiri, both of whom were involved at the 2018 World Cup.

Klopp spoke out against high transfer fees in July 2016 after Manchester United parted with £89.3m to sign Paul Pogba, saying he would "do it differently" even if he had such funds at his disposal.

Keita impressed in Liverpool FC's 3-1 loss to Klopp's former club Borussia Dortmund in the International Champions Cup in United States at the weekend.

"Keita said: "[My father] has spoken to me loads since I signed for Liverpool about how much he loved them. While talking to the BBC, Klopp openly admitted that he was wrong before, "It is only an opinion in that moment".

Keita completed his move from Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig to Liverpool in the off-season after the Premier League giants struck a deal last term, reportedly worth £50 million.

"I sit next to him in the changing room and we have a lot of banter; my French is awful but I try my best".

"It is not for me to say we don't want to pay big money because in the end Liverpool is not successful".

After the game Karius also took aim at his critics with an Instagram post by writing: "To those who take joy in seeing other people fail or suffer, I feel for you".

The £50m star was signed last summer but has only now been able to play for his new side.

"We have the players we want".

Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp has asked Belgian striker with Kenyan roots Divock Origi to prove himself or risk losing his place in the team in the coming season.

Asked about whether Dortmund's Christian Pulisic was a player on his radar, Klopp, who managed the Bundesliga side for seven years, admitted he is a fan of the USA worldwide. They know him already.

"If you bring one player in for £100m and he gets injured, then it all goes through the chimney", he said. For this, there's still space for development. We don't know the situation. And the 23-year-old has explained why he snubbed the rest in an interview.

"We see him as a creative No 8 playing the passes and making the runs with the ball". That's completely normal.' What is also normal is the rising pressure on Klopp.
