Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp and Frank Lampard have been having a go at each other, and their grudges started since a touchline drama when the two sides met in the Premier League towards the end of last season.

Klopp recently took a dig at Chelsea’s spending during the summer transfer window as he revealed that his team built their success and didn’t buy their way through.

Lampard has since replied Klopp as he listed the number of expensive signings that was made by the Reds boss.

The two sides meet on Sunday, and Klopp has now sent a fresh message to Lampard. Although Klopp insists that he has no grudges with Lampard, he still maintains that his side has the best transfer approach and hints that Chelsea are trying to buy success.

“Between Frank [Lampard] and me, there is absolutely nothing – I admired him and loved him as a player and now he is doing a really good job as a coach,” Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp told Sky Sports.

“So I can’t help you with some ‘rivalry’ between us, we will obviously be rivals on Sunday but apart from that, it’s all good.

“We are different clubs, leading in a different way, that’s how it is – we invest what we earn and sometimes we invest before we earn, but it’s still based on these kind of things and it’s not like this for other clubs.

“Whatever they do though I am completely fine with that – they can all do what they want and it’s a free world. We have our way of dealing with the club.”

  1. Klopp is being childish. He is in fact getting jealous Chelsea got Warner and Kai, fellow Germans and not him. Every big team buys what suits it. L’Pool bought Virj, no one had a dig on them. They are in for Alcantara, if rumours are true, no one is questioning them.It is not Chelsea’s fault L’Pool are not buying top class players, no, it is there policies and procedures as a club. But for him insisting on the silly fact that Chelsea wasted money during a pandemic is foolish. Every business invests according to its model. Chelsea wasn’t in business for 2 windows, did he expect them to sit and wait till the pandemic end to improve their squad? No. Pandemic calls us to be prudent but not to be dictated by it. It is not the end of everything. Life must move on.
