Liverpool hero Aldridge warns FSG: Don’t let down Klopp

Liverpool hero John Aldridge has warned FSG not to let down manager Jurgen Klopp.


Aldridge feels the club’s owners must open the chequebook this summer.

He wrote for the Sunday World: “There has been plenty of criticism of Liverpool’s American owners – Fenway Sports Group – in recent months, and I’m among those frustrated by the lack of finances that seem to be available to manager Jurgen Klopp.

“Suggestions that Liverpool have pulled out of the race for Jude Bellingham, because they want to spread their transfer fund on a few players, set alarm bells ringing for the fans.

“After a challenging season that has seen Liverpool fall dramatically from where they were a year ago, it’s clear that big money needs to be spent to get the team back on track.

“Two top midfielders are needed, a striker is required to replace the departing Roberto Firmino (inset left) – and there is a feeling that selling unwanted players can raise funds to buy replacements.

“Well, the market has moved on since Liverpool signed Virgil van Dijk and Alisson Becker for big money, using the cash from the sale of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona in 2018.

“Liverpool will need to spend £250m on new signings this summer – and they won’t get that from player sales, so FSG would be wise to look at what is happening at Everton, Chelsea and Spurs to see what happens if a manager is not given the right backing.”
