Jurgen Klopp has called out Chelsea for spending big, in defence to why Liverpool haven’t been really active this transfer window.
The Merseyside club who have been quiet in the past recent transfer windows have made only one first-team transfer this summer in comparison to Chelsea who have made five first-team additions.
Konstantinos Tsimikas joined Liverpool from Olympiacos for a fee of around €13M.
In an interview with BBC 5 Live Sport, the 53-year-old stressed on Liverpool being a different kind of club to Chelsea.
“We live in a world at the moment with a lot of uncertainty. For some clubs, it seems to be less important how uncertain the future is. Owned by countries, owned by oligarchs, that’s the truth. We’re a different kind of club.”, Klopp said while speaking to BBC 5 Live Sport.
The German continued saying, “We can’t just say, ‘now we want to behave like Chelsea. You cannot bring in the 11 best players in the world and hope they just play the best football they ever will. It’s about working together on the training ground. That will probably be an advantage for us.”

Chelsea have been very active in this transfer window, completing the signing of Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva, Kai Havertz, and Timo Werner. Lest we forget, and Hakim Ziyech who joined from Ajax in February.
Chelsea seem not done yet as the London club are reportedly working very hard to sign Rennes goalkeeper, Edouard Mendy.
Chelsea could still make a shocking move for 21-year-old Declan Rice after completing Mendy’s transfer, according to reports.
