Klopp speaks on paying huge transfer fees after criticizing Pogba's price

This summer, Klopp has signed Brazilian midfielder Fabinho from Monaco - in a deal that could be worth more than £40m - and Stoke playmaker Xherdan Shaqiri for £13m before breaking the world record for a goalkeeper last week to sign Alisson, Brazil's first choice at the World Cup ahead of Manchester City's Ederson.

Two years ago, Jürgen Klopp was scathing of the transfer of Paul Pogba to Manchester United.

Speaking before Liverpool's opening International Champions Cup match against Borussia Dortmund in North Carolina yesterday, Klopp said spending at the top end of the transfer market had moved on. "He could have joined us here, he wanted to stay that day [he signed] but it made absolutely no sense", Klopp said of his new shot-stopper.

You may have heard a famous quote attributed to legendary economist John Maynard Keynes: "When my information changes, I alter my conclusions".

"He is in very good shape, that's true".

Mohamed Salah looked to be in good spirits after having linked up with his Liverpool FC team-mates for pre-season training last week.

According to a report from the Mirror, Liverpool were offered the chance to sign Alisson Becker for just £4 million way back in the summer of 2015, but chose to pass up on the opportunity.

And AT&T Inc has promised to boost investment in HBO after taking over the network in its Time Warner acquisition. That exceeded the 79 cents a share estimated by analysts polled by Factset.

On Saturday, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp embodied this epigram, as he admitted that his opinion on exorbitant transfer spending has "evolved".

"He has a contract at Dortmund, no?"

"He's a fantastic player and it's deserved that people think highly of him in America - in Germany it's the same". Obviously he is a world-class goalkeeper, so we are not going to say: 'let's have a look.' He will play, of course. But in this moment he's in a really good club for his development.

He knows critics will be lining up should Liverpool wobble at any stage and it is how they deal with the hard moments that will determine what they can achieve. Four red cards last season suggest revelling in it a bit too much.

"He wants to be, I'm sure, the best Christian Pulisic he can be". But I like him and it's not like that could be the problem. The 23-year-old was even accompanied by the current Rangers coach at his Liverpool unveiling, and he told reporters on Friday that his Anfield dreams go far back.

"I know we have enough quality", Keita said.
