Jurgen Klopp rules out Liverpool signing Lionel Messi this summer. “The numbers are absolutely not for us. But good player, to be honest!”
Jurgen Klopp has ruled out Liverpool signing Lionel Messi this summer, but admits the Barcelona forward would prove a “great” addition for the Premier League should he move to an English club.
Asked whether Liverpool would like to sign the Argentina international, Klopp replied: “Interest? Who doesn’t want to have Messi in their team? But no chance. The numbers are absolutely not for us. But good player, to be honest!”
“It will obviously help Manchester City and make it more difficult to beat them,” added Klopp.
“For the Premier League, it would be great 100 per cent to have the best player in the world, that would help but I am not sure the Premier League needs that boost.
“But it would be a boost for sure. It would be interesting as well to see. He has never played in another league other than in Spain. Football is different here. I would like to see it but I am not sure that I will.”
