Klopp concedes Champions League qualification will bring new Liverpool headaches

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp concedes Champions League qualification will bring fresh headaches next season.

Liverpool are in a strong position to claim only their second appearance in the competition in eight seasons, standing in third place in the Premier League with only five games remaining.

"That English clubs have not performed that well in the Champions League is also down to the increasing intensity of the league," he told Sport1.

“The competition (in the Premier League) is higher. The money is there, it's like a closed circuit. It's not gone, it is just with someone else.

"That's why the transfer fees in England are that high. The money is just redirected. And if they snap up someone from abroad, the financial power is there also.

“The squads are really strong. But the number of games takes strength and Monaco, for instance, took advantage of it against Manchester City (in the Champions League)."
