Despite the fact that he admired several Spanish players, he only had Gonzalo Castro at Dortmund, a ‘half-Spaniard’. Wouldn’t he have loved to have more at his disposal?
Dortmund had no money to buy them. Gonzalo Castro was, but only half Spanish. A fantastic player, by the way
Jurgen Klopp said talking to Spanish newspaper Marca. So, whom exactly would he have loved to have on his side, instead of seeing him in an opponent’s shirt?
In my time in Germany, I admired Thiago Alcantara, for example
the Liverpool manager admitted, despite the fact that Thiago was playing for Dortmund’s biggest rivals, Bayern Munich.
Busquets is only 28, right? What a player! And it seems that he’s been playing 16 years in that position. And what about David Silva? There are others; Pedro is playing well. But yeah, it‘s a coincidence that I have not signed many Spaniards
Klopp told the Spanish newspaper. Last, but not least, he kept possibly the biggest compliment for someone who does play in Spain, but is not a Spaniard;
Toni Kroos is an exceptional player, a genius. He’s so subtle with the ball
the German manager said about his compatriot. It remains to be seen if this summer Liverpool will move for a player of that caliber, and if yes, it will be interesting to see if their attempt will be successful or not.
