Jurgen Klopp would be perfect to work with Liverpool's transfer committee

Published 5 Comments

There were a number of factors that led to the downfall of Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool, but arguably the most prominent was the role of the transfer committee at Anfield.

A number of decisions were made by the committee that undermined the role of Rodgers - such as the arrival of Mario Balotelli and refusal to sign Ashley Williams.

However, according to German football expert Raphael Honigstein, Jurgen Klopp would be perfectly suited to work with the committee, if given the job.

He told talkSPORT: “He’s a coach first and foremost – the transfer committee sounds bad but the system itself is one that he’s fairly comfortable with.

“He needs somebody who does that [brings in players] for him and he needs to trust these guys to be clever and smart enough to bring in the best players.

“90 percent of the players at Borussia Dortmund weren’t signed by Klopp - but they weren’t signed against his wishes either.”


Klopp is the favourite to replace Rodgers at the helm and he appears to be the popular vote amongst the majority of Liverpool fans. 

He has proven his ability to get the best out of so-called 'average' players during his time in the Bundesliga and would have to do the same with a Liverpool squad that is lacking title winning quality.

The pressure would be on for the 48-year-old to hit the ground running at Anfield, but a top-four finish is still well within their reach at this early stage of the season.

The transfer committee would not come into play until January, but a manager like Klopp would surely get the final say on any incoming deals before pen was put to paper.
