Liverpool have confirmed that they will continue to back Jurgen Klopp in the transfer market, despite their other financial commitments around the club.
The Merseyside club splashed out a record £200 million last summer, and a further £75m last January, investments which have seen Liverpool close the gap on Man City at the top of the Premier League table.
They are also heavily committed to redeveloping their Anfield stadium, recently completing the upgrade of their main stand, while they are also massively expanding their training facilities in Kirkby where the first team and academy will eventually be integrated.
However, Liverpool managing director Billy Hogan has said that ‘nothing is a distraction’ for the Reds, indicating that they will continue to splash the cash in the transfer market, as they look to rediscover the success on the pitch that the club enjoyed in the 70’s and 80’s.
“That represents a significant investment into the non-playing side and that is a great indication of where we are as a club, both on and off the pitch,” Hogan told fcbusiness.
“From our perspective, what you are seeing is a continuation of that performance on the pitch and the reinvestment in the squad, which is the most important thing from our point of view; nothing is a distraction from putting a successful team on the pitch.
“Putting Jurgen and the guys on the football side in a position to compete at the highest levels, that is always our focus and we see our contribution to that in the form of being able to run the business in a better way and being able to drive revenues to invest back into the team.”
On the immediate horizon for Liverpool however is the hotly anticipated clash against their great rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford today.
