Klopp content despite Liverpool's lack of strengthening

Liverpool Manager Juergen Klopp offered the argument if it is not broken, do not fix it for its lack of activity in the transfer market while preparing for the Premier league home opener to promote Norwich City

While Liverpool's title rivals have strengthened, the only purchase of Klopp, with only a few hours to close the transfer window on Thursday, was 1.8 million pounds ($ 2.18 million) paid by the dutch defender Sepp van den Berg .

You should go to Everton , I think they are busier! Klopp told a journalist who was referring to his rivals who spent a lot when asked if there would be last-minute deals in Anfield.

Our transfer window was to verify the options, think about it and make decisions, that's how we always do it. So, if nothing happens, it is because it was not the right choice for us.

We will not make signings just by signing someone. That makes no sense.

Klopp declined to comment on speculation that the former Liverpool player Philippe Coutinho He had approached a return and sounded happy with the strength of his squad.

Given that Liverpool finished runner-up to Manchester City by one point, having surprised a colossal 97, then won the Champions League and also has absent long-term Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain injuries available again, which is not surprising .

We have many options and different alignments, Klopp said.

With Liverpool kicking off the Premier league season on Friday, they have a chance to lay down an early marker against a Norwich side who won the Championship last year.

Liverpool are undefeated in their last 12 league games against the Canary Islands, but Klopp says they should start with the kind of intensity they finished last season when they won their last nine league games in a titanic battle with City.

We have to respect them (to Norwich) 100% with the effort and desire we show from the beginning, Klopp said.

It is the new season and we have to be angry and greedy again and create a football atmosphere.

The first game of the season is always difficult, Norwich has a clear plan and they have all my respect, but these games are always possible banana skins.

Liverpool's forward in Senegal, Sadio Mane, can start even though he only returned to train on Monday after he was given free time to recover from the African Cup of Nations, where his country lost in the final of 19 July before Algeria.

He only had two weeks off, so he didn't lose much, which is good news and it looks good, Klopp said.

Wednesday was the first session and now he has been with the team for the first time and is in a good mood.
