Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp frustrated with transfer policy after £100m Kalidou Koulibaly move was snubbed

THINGS are not going well on the pitch at Liverpool. And behind the scenes, they have become a bit tense after winning just two out of their seven last games in all competition.

Jurgen Klopp has grown increasingly frustrated with the club’s transfer policy, although owners Fenway Sports Group believe they have gone above and beyond, considering the disastrous financial climate.

Klopp is annoyed they failed to move for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly last month due to his side’s big defensive injury problems.

Koulibaly, 29, never appeared a serious prospect as the Italian club’s owner, Aurelio De Laurentiis, demanded a fee of £100MILLION.

But, privately, Klopp made it clear he wanted the Senegal international.

He still believed that a club the size of Liverpool should have done everything to sign Koulibaly.

Instead, they moved for Ben Davies, 25, from Preston, and 20-year-old Ozan Kabak on loan from Schalke.

Klop sporting director Michael Edwards – considered a genius by the club’s fans for his brilliant transfer record – appears to find himself in an awkward situation between manager and owners.

There also seem to be frustrations from FSG that Klopp has not really got to grips with the dire financial situation at the club.
