Liverpool chairman Werner: Klopp must have final say on transfers

Liverpool chairman Tom Werner says they're ready to back manager Jurgen Klopp in this summer's market.

Werner says the final say on transfers will always be down to Klopp and revealed that the manager will be given every opportunity by FSG to compete once more as they look to wrestle away the crown from Pep Guardiola's Manchester City again next season.

"So much of this is down to creating a culture of winning," Werner told the Liverpool Echo. "We've said it before and we mean it, we want to win more trophies for our supporters. We want to be like the great teams in England and Europe.

"You can only do that by doing it brick by brick. The signing of Luis Diaz, for a long time people were asking why Liverpool weren't being more aggressive in the transfer market, but the fact is we had such an excellent team that it was important that if we signed someone they would play a significant amount.

"So we're not going to be active every window, but obviously Diaz has had an immediate and an enormous impact. I think that obviously it's very important that Jurgen has the key vote on these matters.

"There is no point signing a player that Jurgen isn't excited about because he has to work with the squad every week. So his enthusiasm for Luis Diaz was the most important vote."
