Klopp warns big-spending rivals being a "proper team" will give Liverpool edge

Jurgen Klopp claims being a “proper team” will be key to winning the Premier League rather than cash.

The Liverpool boss is relaxed at seeing rivals Chelsea and Manchester City spend big in their bids to dethrone his champions.

Liverpool begin the new season against Arsenal in today’s Community Shield at Wembley and Klopp says the title will not be decided by who can spend the most.

“It’s not about how many players anyone will sign,” said Klopp. “In the end they all have to play with 11.

“Motivation will not be our problem. I know this team will not stop trying and that’s all I need. I will not stop trying, but I never expect things to just happen for me.

“I expect that I give absolutely everything and the boys do that as well. That brings us in a position where we can be really competitive and that is the first step towards going for titles.

“It’s about creating a unit which is absolutely difficult to beat and being a proper team that is ready to suffer for each other. That is the most important thing, not who you can buy in a very strange moment of all our lives.”

Liverpool are not expected to make any marquee signings for the second summer running and Klopp says he is happy with the club’s transfer policy.

“We cannot just bring in five players because people want to be busy with that,” he said.

“Every year was pretty much the same. I don’t think I ever bought enough players in a transfer window to satisfy everybody.

“It was always ‘Aaargh, we need another one’. But so far it worked out. It’s really all about what kind of mood we can create again for this season.”
