Liverpool boss Klopp: I don't care about who our rivals are buying; there's no joy in it

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp can't hide his frustration with market rumours.

Despite a lengthy injury list, the Reds are unlikely to make any further new signings after completing their recruitment drive ahead of pre-season with the arrivals of striker Darwin Nunez, attacking midfielder Fabio Carvalho and teenage right-back Calvin Ramsay.

Klopp takes little encouragement from such problems while being adamant Liverpool's concentration is only on their own transfer dealings.

"If I would feel joy in that then I would deserve the injuries we have, to be honest," said the Reds boss.

"I'm not sure whether not caring less is the right phrase. I follow and see when the teams do something or not or whatever, but most of the time I am the last person to get the information.

"There's no joy in that the some teams are trying (to sign players). Other teams have finished their business as well. It's nothing to do with us.

"We cannot increase the rhythm or find money because other teams sign players and we say 'oh no, we have to do as well, because they signed him we now need him'. We have to be completely independent of whatever whoever is doing, and we are.

"We try to sort our situation, which is difficult enough very often but it's our situation at least. That's the only one we can have influence on. That's why it's the only one I'm concerned about."
