Jurgen Klopp Compares Liverpool to Rocky, Manchester City to Ivan Drago

The last few years I've had to sit here and defend our transfer behaviour, we sold more than we brought in.

"It's pretty normal that there would be one point where we spent a bit more money".

Jurgen Klopp expects more players to leave Liverpool following the summer departures of Danny Ward and Danny Ings. Klopp, in looking at the 25 point gap that his side needs to close on the reigning champions Manchester City, analogized his club to Rocky and City to Drago.

When I talked with the owners, we agreed we needed to work on a project.

Paul Merson believes Liverpool FC need to sign another centre-half to finally win their first Premier League title.

"The plan is that we really go for it (the Premier League)".

"We have to be more consistent". We know that. We have to be more clinical in the right moments, we have to be more aggressive in the right moments. Italy have imposed a deadline of next Friday (17th) but other major leagues including La Liga will have until 31st August to conclude their business which means that star players of Premier League teams could yet depart for pastures new but without their sides being able to replace them. We want to be champions of England, but what about [Manchester] United and the other clubs? They have added Fred in a move, similar to their addition of Matic last summer to try and allow Paul Pogba to play further up the pitch and try to have an effect.

"We are still Rocky Balboa, not Ivan Drago". We have to improve everything.

"In the moment someone thinks we reached already a point then that is when you start disappointing yourself and the people around you".

"The league is exactly the same".

"It is hard to win every game, if we see how Wolves, Fulham or Everton act, they are all ambitious". We got the Champions League and that was a success, but we can only improve two more places without being champions.
