Former Liverpool managing director Christian Purslow has warned the club over the future of manager Jurgen Klopp.
Purslow, who was employed between 2009 and 2010, believes that the German could decide to leave Anfield if he isn’t given the financial backing to match his rivals.
“It is not a big six, it is a three and a three.” he told Sky Sports.
“It feels to me like City, United and Chelsea are breaking away from Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham for pure economic reasons.
“United, you are talking Paul Pogba, the most desired footballer on the planet went there last summer.
“The most productive centre-forward in the Premier League, Romelu Lukaku, went there last summer. Henrikh Mkhitaryan, probably the most admired creative midfield player in Germany, went there.
“They are shopping at Harrods. Liverpool need to start shopping at Harrods rather than just selling the good ones.
“And I really believe Jurgen Klopp is absolutely A-list, he is the next manager for one of those bigger clubs if Liverpool do not fulfill his ambitions.” he finished.
If Klopp does decide to leave the club, for whatever reasons, asking Purslow about his replacement may not be the wisest idea – as he was one the driving forces behind the appointment of Roy Hodgson back in 2010.
