Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has questioned Chelsea’s spending under the Todd Boehly-Clearlake Capital ownership.
The Blues have spent upwards of £400million on transfers this season with several more expected in the remainder of the January transfer window.
Klopp told BT Sport: “There are obviously plenty of different ways you can do it, but it’s all based on the situation you are in, especially with the things happening around, Chelsea with the new ownership obviously, nobody knows exactly how they do it, how they can spend this much money.
“Other teams, nobody likes me talking about that… but transition needs time if you don’t have endless money, otherwise you can change overnight pretty much, bringing in 10 players.
“Last week I got a question if I am too loyal, I’m not too loyal but questioning loyalty in general is a sign of our time, the time we are living in as well, which I really don’t like too much. I never saw anything bad in loyalty, to be honest, to your friends, to your family, to your company, in an ideal world you are loyal, and it’s not a one-way word. That’s an ideal world when both sides feel the same and big things can grow.”
