Liverpool's Klopp defends Alisson outlay

Liverpool's Klopp defends Alisson outlay

Klopp had previously kept his counsel on the decisive incidents in Kiev but did not hold back when pressed again on Liverpool's U.S. tour, insisting Ramos's history of controversy requires greater scrutiny.

Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler has warned The Reds'manager Jurgen Klopp and their teeming fans not to overrate the arrival of Brazilian goalkeeper, Alisson Becker, as the former AS Roma shotstopper might need up to a full season to understand the rudiments of the English Premier League.

Perhaps the novelty of staging global friendlies in "The Big House" is wearing off, as this is the third event the Univ. of MI has hosted in six years.

"I didn't say before the medical "we are signing a goalkeeper" and then it's like "oh".

"Maybe this season, finally, you demand that they win", Mourinho said during United's pre-season tour of the United States.

Klopp, whose Liverpool side will take on Mourinho's Manchester United in MI on Saturday as part of the International Champions Cup exhibition tournament, shrugged off the remarks on Friday. Ramos said a lot of things afterwards that I didn't like. That's how it is, ' Klopp told Sky Sports News.

"If you put all of the situations of Ramos together, and I have watched football since I was five years old, then you will see a lot of situations with Ramos". They are quality players, all of them, and we are not in a situation where we have to do something. Not that it was our goal before the start of the season, we didn't say: 'Let's be handsome and win that'.

'That's part of the job, to try to bring the best players you can get.

"But the opponents don't sleep".

"The boys have to enjoy their football, we have to enjoy our football, otherwise it makes no sense".

He was even subjected to death threats via Instagram previous year after a series of under-par performances. Klopp said Liverpool were excited by the challenge.

A Liverpool fan page on Instagram uploaded a video of Karius's mistake against Dortmund along with the captain: "Thank god we've got Alisson". How can people be happy like that? It's an impressive building, it's cool.

Few conclusions can be drawn from pre-season, but the way in which Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah made an instant impact on their return at the MetLife Stadium is certainly encouraging.

"The other goalkeepers are really good, like our midfielders".
