Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool are "different" and will not "behave like Chelsea"

Liverpool have had a quiet summer compared to their big-spending rivals – but Jurgen Klopp insists that is because they are a “different kind of club”.

And he says they will never “behave like Chelsea ” as he hinted Frank Lampard will face a struggle to get his side on the same page early on.

Timo Werner and Kai Havertz, previously linked with Liverpool, have been amongst the big-money arrivals at Stamford Bridge.

Klopp, meanwhile, has added only left-back Kostas Tsimikas to his first-team squad for a modest £11.7million fee.

But he reiterated his belief that their continuity and spirit can give his side an edge in their Premier League title defence as he insisted they are not like the clubs “owned by countries and oligarchs”.

“We live in a world at the moment with a lot of uncertainty,” Klopp told BBC Five Live.

“For some clubs it seems less important how uncertain the future is: [those] owned by countries, owned by oligarchs, that’s the truth. We’re a different kind of club.

“We got to the Champions League final two years ago, we won it last year, and became Premier League champions last season by being the club we are, by leading the way we are led.

“We cannot just change it overnight and say, ‘so now we want to behave like Chelsea, now we want to behave like them’.

“Now they are signing a lot of players.

“That can be an advantage of course but that means they have to fit together pretty quickly as well, it’s not only about bringing quality in.

“You cannot bring in the 11 best players in the world and just hope a week later they play the best football ever played.

“It’s about working together on the training ground.

“That will probably be an advantage for us. We’ve worked quite a while with each other, but I know people don’t want to hear that.”
