Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville has now made a Liverpool takeover prediction about Jurgen Klopp.
Speaking on Sky Sports last night, the former Manchester United defender claimed the Reds boss will feel empowered by new owners arriving on Merseyside. Consequently, he believes this will convince him to stay and lead the project for years to come.
“Liverpool have got new owners coming in,” Neville said.
“If Jurgen Klopp can get £250m from new owners and he spends it wisely as he has over the last 7 years, he’s going to be empowered to transform that team.
“I don’t see him thinking ‘this is the end’.”
The German manager is under contract at Anfield until the summer of 2026.
Neville says Klopp will be empowered
The idea of Klopp having a big budget to spend will be really exciting for Liverpool fans.
For years now, the Reds boss has not been given the funds needed to maintain their spot as Premier League challengers.
After years of austerity, the effects are finally showing, as the side looks like it needs rebuilding.
However, the club need to sort out their transfer policy and hierarchy before any money is thrown at management.
More recently, assistant manager Pep Lijnders has taken up a bigger role when it comes to signing players.
A number of his ideas have come under scrutiny by supporters in recent times, as the current squad doesn’t appear to be anywhere near as physical as Klopp would have previously required.
With Michael Edwards gone and Julian Ward heading for the door at the end of the season, Liverpool need to bring in an experienced sporting director to help guide the club’s scouting direction.
Perhaps, the new owners should try to bring Edwards back to Merseyside, as he was paramount to the side’s success for years.
