Liverpool will Have to Win the Premier League.
Manchester United Manager Jose Mourinho believes Liverpool’s summer spending means they face immense pressure to win the Premier League title, with Mourinho labelling Jurgen Klopp’s change in transfer policy as “funny”.
Two years before the Liverpool boss was critical of United’s £90m move for Paul Pogba and now has been forced to defend Liverpool’s expenditure on players, which topped £170m after signing goalkeeper Alisson last week.
Speaking after the friendly against AC Milan – which United won 9-8 in a shootout after a 1-1 draw – Mourinho was in a jovial mood when asked about Liverpool’s transfer business, but stressed there will now be a thirts for the club to end their 28-year lack ofu a league title.
“I think if you have the money, if you invest well, it is better than to have it in the bank. Because the interest rates are very low,” Mourinho said.
“And I’m also happy to smile [about Klopp’s previous comments] and to see that, you know, you can change your opinion and change as a person, it’s funny.
“You have to say the team, with the investments not just this season, last season, that you made in January, that you make now, because that will probably be the record for the Premier League this season, I can’t see anyone else getting close to spending what they have.
“A team that was a finalist in the Champions League, you have to say you are a big candidate, you have to win.”
Manchester United maanager still has alot to figure out in his camp as the team are currently lacking in key areas.
