Jurgen Klopp Admits His Opinion of Paul Pogba Transfer Fee Has Evolved

jurgen klopp

You may have heard a famous quote attributed to legendary economist John Maynard Keynes: “When my information changes, I alter my conclusions. What do you do, sir?” On Saturday, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp embodied this epigram, as he admitted that his opinion on exorbitant transfer spending has “evolved.”

Back in 2016, when Manchester United broke the world’s transfer fee record in re-acquiring Paul Pogba from Juventus for £89.3 million, Klopp harshly criticized the deal. In the two years since however, Klopp’s Liverpool have become massive big spenders themselves; and he does not care one iota if you call him a hypocrite over this.

Manchester City lost 1-0 tonight to Borussia Dortmund in the very first game of the International Champions Cup, a collection of preseason friendlies being played overseas. This was City’s first 2018-19 preseason friendly, and the performance was…well, they weren’t exactly in midseason form.

That was to be expected though as so many of City’s players are on post World Cup holiday and have not yet joined up with the squad. Plus it’s an exhibition, so you weren’t going to see much of the stars anyway.
