Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has said that watching Chelsea struggle this season despite their huge spending in the transfer market, has brought him so much joy.
Chelsea is currently having one of their worst Premier League campaigns, sitting 12th on the table and 10 points clear of the relegation zone even after signing 16 players.
Commenting on what has played out, Klopp told Sky Sports;
“I feel a little bit for Chelsea to be honest, because it’s not going well, I think they’re a top, top team, but on the other side it’s good to see that you cannot just bring top players together and think it works out. You have to build a team and that’s what the guys there underestimated and gave their coaches a nearly impossible job to do.
“You cannot have two dressing rooms, you cannot train on two pitches, you have to create relationships, you have to create team spirit, and that journey is why I’m a little bit happy about it. Chelsea will be fine in the end and they will be incredibly strong next year, but I’m using them just as an example. At the highest level, no, we cannot do it like that. And that’s what we will not do. You have to bring in the right players and build a new team. This team wrote a sensational story and now we start a new one, that’s it.”
