Jurgen insists he and FSG are on same page.

LIVERPOOL manager Jurgen Klopp insists he and owners Fenway Sports Group are on the same page when it comes to transfer business in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The defending Premier League champions are unlikely to bring anyone in during the January window as the club, like many others, keep a tight rein on their finances.

So any chance of bringing in a centre-back as cover for the three senior players he currently has injured is unlikely.

But Klopp accepts that is the understandable and responsible course of action - he prefers to do his significant business in the summer anyway - and rejected suggestions John W Henry's FSG did not understand his needs.

"In good times everyone thinks our owners are really generous - 'My God, big signings' - and in bad times everyone thinks they are really tight, but they are not, they are absolutely concerned about the club and success of the club," he said.

"And that is an understanding how we have it. They see exactly the same things I see about necessity of players and stuff - it's not that I say 'By the way a centrehalf would be really nice' and they say 'Wow, a centre-half. Really? Why?'.

"It is all clear, all on the table, we work on that. It is the situation and on top of that we have January, not the easiest transfer window, having not the money exactly like we want."
