Liverpool Chairman Tom Werner has claimed that Liverpool will be even stronger next season as the club will spend more money in bringing in players.
Werner spoke about us bringing in Naby Keita from RB Leipzig and added that there will be signings made for next season. This is important now as we lost the Champions League final to Real Madrid last night.
The American was quoted by the Liverpool Echo as saying:
“I am excited to see Naby Keita join the club this summer and I can only promise our supporters that we will continue to improve the squad.
“Whatever happens on Saturday night, we will ensure we have a strong squad to compete for trophies next season which will have even more depth.
“We will make decisions that will improve the team and we will sign players who make us even more successful.”
Keita was one of our prime targets last season but we could not bring him to the club at that time. We did, however, seal a deal for the Guinea international and signed him up for the upcoming season.
Another player we splashed the cash on was Virgil van Dijk and even after we made a hash of the initial bid, which led us to apologise to Southampton, the Dutchman signed for us in January.
Werner also touched upon some of our smarter signings in the likes of Andrew Robertson and Mohamed Salah. The pair has turned out to be bargains and the American wanted to credit the entire management for the signings.
“I want to pay great credit obviously to Jurgen because he’s our leader but also to sporting director Michael Edwards, Dave Fallows and Barry Hunter.
“As a team they are extremely collaborative in the recruitment of our players.
“With Virgil, it was very clear that he wanted to come to play for Liverpool.”
One thing is a certainty, we have been able to bring in quality players because of Jurgen Klopp and that was another factor that Werner touched upon as we look ahead to another fantastic season under the German manager.
