Klopp admits Liverpool may not spend Barca’s money in January

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has explained why he is reluctant to spend the Philippe Coutinho money this January.

Coutinho finally completed a £142m move to Barcelona earlier in the month and made his debut for the club on Sunday.

Klopp’s side won their first game without the Brazil international 4-3 against the table-toppers Manchester City, but that hasn’t stopped calls for the Reds to splash the cash and find a replacement.

However, the German boss has admitted that Liverpool will not spend money just for the sake of it.

“I don’t think about money. Nobody told me that I have to think about money because we are always reasonable, we always try to do the right thing,” Klopp said.

“Obviously we don’t hesitate to spend the money, we did a few times, but it is not about the moment, it is about making the right decision.

“If anything obviously right would be there in the window then nobody would not do it and we say, OK, let’s go for it.

“But it is not about doing something to cool the situation down or show the people we don’t sleep.

“It is only about right or wrong and at this moment in this situation it is right.”
