Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has come out to say that Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to MUFC is not a business for the future. He recently revealed that the transfer will not affect Liverpool’s chances of success this season.
According to him, he only sees Manchester United benefitting from the move right now, not for several years to come.
He added that Liverpool is concentrating on building a team for the future because that is how sustainable success can be achieved.
His words, “I watch that like a football supporter, actually. You probably have much more knowledge about whether it will happen or not, than I have.”
“It’s not about me to judge that, but if other clubs can do things like this then it’s obviously not business for the future, that in three or four years they will have the benefit of it. It’s for now, and immediately!”
“That’s how some clubs are obviously working, and that’s fine, but there must be different ways. There must be a team for a year later and for two years later, three years later.”
“It’s really nice if you can win trophies, but even with the best squad in the world that’s not possible every year. If it’s not possible then you still need to make sure that you develop as a team, as a club, and that you use these kind of things. That’s what we did and that’s what we do.”
“All the rest is not in our hands. We watch it like all of you, and we see what happens.”
“First of all, with [Lionel] Messi and Ronaldo especially, there might be a commercial aspect of course, but I don’t think Paris Saint-Germain bought Messi for commercial reasons. They brought him in because Messi still has a lot to give to a football team.”
“If Cristiano comes to the Premier League then that is the first intention as well. I never had to make a ‘commercial’ signing, whatever that means. Nobody ever asked me that. If they did, then I would start thinking about it.”
