Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp: "We are a different kind of club."

There will be no spending spree at Anfield this summer.

Jurgen Klopp has acknowledged Liverpool cannot function like their rivals in the current transfer market.

The former Dortmund boss said the Premier League champions are “not owned by countries or oligarchs”.

The Reds haven’t been as active in recruiting players after winning their first league title in 30 years, signing only Kostas Tsimikas for £11.7m so far.

While Chelsea have already spent nearly £200m in their quest to close the gap on Liverpool and Manchester City in the English top flight.

"Clubs are in different situations and we are living in uncertainty in the world,” Klopp told the BBC.

"For some clubs it seems to be less important how uncertain the future is because they are owned by countries, owned by oligarchs, and that is the truth.

“We are a different kind of club. We reached the Champions League final two years ago, won it the following year and won the Premier League by being the club we are."
