Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has praised Chelsea’s decision to recruit Mykhailo Mudryk.
The Blues beat Arsenal to the signature of the Ukrainian international, splashing out £88m on the player and, while Klopp was complimentary about the winger, he couldn’t help but take a potshot at Chelsea’s transfer spending:
“A really good player, incredible Champions League campaign; speed, technique, goals. Combines a lot. So, having him on one wing and Felix on the other is interesting. Chelsea sorts problems differently to us, so let’s see.”
Since Todd Boehly’s arrival at Stamford Bridge, the London club have splashed out an incredible £400m on new signings, which is something that Klopp could only dream of doing at Liverpool.
The Reds have delved into the market to bring in Cody Gakpo from PSV Eindhoven this month but fans are keen for a revamp in midfield and they have been left disappointed by the club’s inactivity so far during the January transfer window.
Of course, you can’t just solve your problems on the pitch by spending money on transfers. Going into the weekend, Liverpool were still above Chelsea on goal difference with a game in hand.
