Man City’s manager Pep Guardiola and Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp have hit out at Chelsea’s strategy to spend a mammoth 323 million pounds on the January transfer window. Chelsea made a huge choice on the deadline day by signing World Cup winner midfielder Enzo Fernandez from Benfica to their club, for which they had to spend 107 million pounds.
Apart from that, they were also speeding up in bringing players to their squad, to which both these football managers got baffled. On the contrary, Liverpool only spent 44 million pounds, that too only on Cody Gapko, and Man City, only 8 million pounds on Maximo Perrone.
Jurgen Klopp, in this regard
Pep Guardiola, who’s in charge of Man City, has defended the club from heavy spending the recent seasons. And he even surprised stated that he was a bit amazed by Chelsea’s decision. Jurgen Klopp said in this regard that –
He has nothing to do without his lawyer and even told the media that he doesn’t understand this part of the business because it is a very big number. He stated that the players are indeed great, but he doesn’t understand the strategy by which Chelsea is going.
Pep Guardiola, in this regard
Pep Guardiola was indeed very much amazed by seeing Chelsea’s decision but didn’t express much when asked the same. He said that it was not his business. However, it is a surprise because Chelsea is not a state-owned club. Pep Guardiola’s club Man City has emerged victoriously in 11 titles, that too in the last 5 years, being among the five or six net spend teams in the English Premier League.
How will Chelsea do?
Though Chelsea hasn’t been in a good situation if the Premier League table is considered. However, it is also speculated that to better their situation, Chelsea is ready to invest in players, and the same thing we saw in the previous transfer window.
