Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp believes that Newcastle is the new footballing superpower after the takeover by the Saudi Arabian takeover. The club becomes one of the richest in the world after the takeover was approved by the Premier League. The Liverpool boss has no doubt that they will be able to sign some of the best players in the world in the upcoming transfer windows.
“What will it mean for football? A few months ago, we had a massive issue in the football world with 12 clubs trying to build a Super League,” Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said about Newcastle. “It didn’t happen but this is kind of creating a ‘super team’ if you want. It is pretty much the same. Guaranteed spot in the Champions League. In a few years’ time, not immediately. With how financial fair play is used nowadays where nobody knows exactly whether it is still existing or not.”
“Newcastle fans will love it of course but of course for us, it just means there is a new superpower in Newcastle. I can’t avoid that,” he added. “Money cannot buy everything but over time they have enough money to make a few wrong decisions to then make the right decisions and then they will be where they want to be. As far as I know, it is the third club to be owned by a country. I am not sure how many countries are out there to have the financial power and interest to do so.”
