Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool are ‘different’ and won’t ‘behave like Chelsea’


Liverpool have had a quiet summer compared to their spendthrift rivals – but Jurgen Klopp insists that’s because they’re a ‘different type of club’. And he says they will “never behave like Chelsea” as he has hinted Frank Lampard will face a struggle to put his side on the same page from the start.

Among the most important arrivals at Stamford Bridge are Timo Werner and Kai Havertz, previously linked with Liverpool.

Klopp, meanwhile, added only left-back Kostas Tsimikas to his first-team team for a small fee of £ 11.7million.

But he reiterated his conviction that their continuity and spirit can give his team an advantage in their defense of the Premier League title, insisting that they are not like clubs “belonging to countries and oligarchs ».

Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool are a ‘different type of club’ from Chelsea

“We live in a world right now with a lot of uncertainty,” Klopp told BBC Five Live.

“For some clubs, the uncertainty of the future seems less important: [those] belonging to countries, belonging to oligarchs, that’s the truth. We are a different kind of club.

“We got to the Champions League final two years ago, we won it last year and became Premier League champions last season by being the club we are, showing the way that we are headed.

“We can’t just change that overnight and say ‘now we want to behave like Chelsea, now we want to behave like them’.

“Now they sign a lot of players.

“That can be an advantage of course, but it means that they also have to come together quite quickly, it’s not just about bringing quality.

“You can’t bring in the 11 best players in the world and hope that a week later they will play the best football ever.

“It’s about working together on the training ground.

“It will probably be an advantage for us. We’ve been working with each other for a long time, but I know people don’t want to hear that.
