Dalglish believes Klopp was right by not dipping into the transfer market

The former Liverpool forward is happy to see boss Jurgen Klopp make the best he can with the current rosters, as the Reds aim to win more trophies.

Liverpool was fairly successful last season.

The Reds were just one point away from English Premier League champions, Manchester City.

But the club won the UEFA Champions League after defeating Tottenham Hotspur in the final.

And ex-Liverpool forward Kenny Dalglish believes the secret to the success is the players, and he’s glad Klopp didn’t go all-in into the summer transfer market.

“Liverpool haven’t made any big-money signings, and everyone at the football club will be comfortable about that,” he said according to Goal.

“They are the champions of Europe and have an exceptionally-strong squad. There is no point in bringing in new players unless they are an improvement on what you have.”

He explained: “For every club, that’s not as easy as it sounds.”

“You need to be patient and wait for the right moment and the right player.”

“Some managers and chairmen might feel the need to buy for the sake of it, whether it’s to keep the fans happy or just add numbers,” he said.

“But the one thing about Jurgen Klopp is that he will absolutely not do anything that he does not want to do. That’s a fantastic quality to have.”

“On the flip side, it’s just as important not to lose any of your top players and Liverpool haven’t sold anyone or loaned out anyone that weakens their squad,” Dalglish concluded.
