Jurgen Klopp admits that he was wrong about rival star Paul Pogba

Klopp's side this summer paid a world-record fee for a goalkeeper to sign Alisson from Roma in a deal worth up to £65 million (Dh313.5m), while in January Virgil van Dijk became the most expensive defender in football when he arrived at Anfield for £75m.

Jurgen Klopp has hinted at a possible future at Liverpool for Daniel Sturridge, whose "natural arrogance" has seen him stand out from the fringes.

A couple of years ago, when Manchester United signed Paul Pogba for a sizeable transfer fee, many pundits including the Liverpool manager criticized the big clubs' policies by and large.

Liverpool fans have been reacting on Twitter after Joel Matip suffered another injury blow during their 3-1 defeat to Borussia Dortmund in the International Champions Cup on Sunday night.

'You are right - people will say that (we have to win something),' said Klopp.

More than £150 million has been spent on acquiring the players Liverpool need to go toe-to-toe with Manchester City. While talking to the BBC, Klopp openly admitted that he was wrong before, "It is only an opinion in that moment". Did I change my opinion? Yes.

With a stunning display in Champions' League last season, Liverpool just put up a bold statement by concluding the signing of Alisson Becker for a rumored £65million.

Liverpool broke the bank to make Alisson the world's most expensive goalkeeper.

"When I saw him at Melwood, he looked fit".

"I am a team player".

"If he wants to play in England one day or whatever and he, for sure, has the chance to do so". That was really good. Four red cards last season suggest revelling in it a bit too much. They know him already. It's very important at that age group that there's no rush because he still has 14 or 15 years to play in his career. Dortmund's Christian Pulisic took centre stage and scored twice on home soil before teenager Jacob Bruun Larsen rounded off the scoring late in the match. For this, there's still space for development. And he doesn't believe the physicality of the league will be a problem for him.

Salah, who was granted an extended break following the World Cup, is with Liverpool in the US after returning to Melwood on Friday. And the 23-year-old has explained why he snubbed the rest in an interview. That's completely normal.' What is also normal is the rising pressure on Klopp.
