Jurgen Klopp has reiterated that transfer decisions are out of his hands, despite the club’s shock loss to Burnley in the Premier League on Thursday night.
That defeat was their first at home in the league for more than four years, and also meant that the club had gone four league games without scoring for the first time since 2000.
That has led to calls by some fans for the club to dip into the transfer market to boost their faltering title challenge, but Klopp has insisted that such matters are out of his hands saying “These decisions are not my decisions. If somebody thinks we should do something, they will decide”.
That defeat means that Liverpool remain fourth in the Premier League table, six points behind leaders Liverpool. However, if Spurs and Everton win their games in hand, they will drop out of he Champions League places, something unthinkable a month ago.
