This summer, many stars left the Premier League to go to the Saudi Pro League, such as Riyad Mahrez, Jordan Henderson, Ruben Neves, Kalidou Koulibaly, N’Golo Kante, Edouard Mendy or Roberto Firmino.

UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin is not concerned about competition from the Saudi Pro League, saying that this tournament only attracts players in the final stages of their careers or are not ambitious enough to reach the top tournaments.

However, Klopp disagrees with this statement and believes that it is too early to dismiss the threat from the rich clubs of the Saudi Pro League.

Klopp instructed Liverpool players at AXA training ground on August 31.

Liverpool’s head coach also shared his colleague Mikel Arteta’s opinion that the Saudi Pro League needs to close at the same time as Europe.

This summer, two Liverpool players went to the Middle East, when Fabinho and Jordan Henderson joined Al Ittihad and Al Ettifaq respectively.

Klopp once again affirmed that Salah is an untouchable player, and revealed that he has not watched any matches in the Saudi Pro League.

Before Klopp’s press conference, although not officially announced, Liverpool had reached an agreement to recruit 21-year-old Dutch midfielder Ryan Gravenberch from Bayern for a fee of 43 million USD.
