Jürgen Klopp's spending spree more pragmatism than hypocrisy

Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool boss 'doesn't care' about transfer criticism

So, too, do Manchester City and Manchester United, who Liverpool will face in the final games of their USA tour.

But, since then, Liverpool has made Virgil van Dijk and Alisson the most expensive defender and goalkeeper of all time, while the club has also spent more than £40million each on Mohamed Salah, Naby Keita and Fabinho.

Shortly before Liverpool took the lead in the friendly, Karius scuffed a clearance directly to Dortmund forward Maximilian Phillip but the striker wasn't able to punish the error.

"That's the problem these days, hey?" On the other side, it's still kind of true.

'I can not ignore that completely.

The Guinean finally joined Jurgen Klopp's squad this summer after agreeing a move to Anfield a year ago, completing a £52.75million switch from RB Leipzig. "Since then the world has changed completely".

Becker was unveiled as Liverpool's new No 1 last week and, in the process, became the most expensive goalkeeper in history. It is early in the transfer window. My long-term aim has always been to play football at the highest level I possibly could for a big club. I'll trust his decision and do what he wants me to do. "So far it's a really good year for us, pretty successful last year".

"My job is together with [sporting director] Michael Edwards and [co-owner] Mike Gordon to bring the best players who are available for Liverpool - if they fit in". Maybe they will play a little bit less, maybe they will play all the games.

"Obviously Alisson is a world-class goalkeeper, so we're not going to say "let's have a look".

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

"It was only an opinion in that moment". I could see how the club was developing and I spoke at length with Sadio [Mane]. I like him a lot and he's a good guy'. "I am fine with that". Our new players will make us stronger, 100 per cent.

Liverpool just arrived in the US for the first of their three International Champions Cup fixtures stateside as they take on Borussia Dortmund on Sunday. On Saturday, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp embodied this epigram, as he admitted that his opinion on exorbitant transfer spending has "evolved".

"If I spend money, it is because I am trying to build a team, a real team". We have the players we wanted.

"He looks full of joy and is really happy to be back".

He knows critics will be lining up should Liverpool wobble at any stage and it is how they deal with the hard moments that will determine what they can achieve.

Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet had shared goalkeeping duties over the previous two seasons but it was the German stopper that had emerged as the club's number one. 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.

'I don't want to prepare anyone for a bad start because I don't want to have one, but it is possible, ' Klopp warned. For this, there's still space for development.

Last season, the 25-year-old reached the semifinals with AS Roma, and this summer he reached the quarterfinals of the World Cup with Brazil.

'I haven't seen a midfielder like him for a while, I'm being honest.
