Jurgen Klopp: I don’t understand FC Barcelona situation

In an interview with German outlet Kicker, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp discussed the current financial problems at FC Barcelona.

“I don’t understand Barça for several reasons. The first is that I am not a financial professional. The second is that if I don’t have money, I don’t spend,” Klopp said.

Despite their well-documented financial issues, Barcelona have managed to sign the likes of Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha and Jules Koundé this summer.

French defender Koundé, brought in from Sevilla, is currently not registered to play in La Liga but could be in time for the club’s trip to take on Real Sociedad on matchday two of the new La Liga season.

Barcelona opened their new campaign with a 0-0 draw at home to Rayo Vallecano on Saturday night. Xavi is expected to make a couple of changes against Real Sociedad. Frenkie de Jong could start the match for the Blaugrana after impressing off the bench against Rayo and in the 6-0 Gamper Trophy victory over Mexican side Pumas.
