Liverpool may be European champions but it’s been a tough summer for the Reds.
On the pitch, they’ve won just two of their six friendlies. Those wins have come against League Two Tranmere and League One Bradford.
Since those victories, they’ve lost to Borussia Dortmund (3-2), Sevilla (2-1) and Napoli (3-0). They’ve also drawn 2-2 to Sporting.
It’s only pre-season but Jurgen Klopp has got to be slightly concerned by those results and performances.
Off the pitch, Liverpool have also been fairly underwhelming.
As champions of Europe, the club should be able to attract almost any player in world football.
But the only arrivals have been 17-year-old Sepp van den Berg and 16-year-old Harvey Elliott.
And with the transfer window slamming shut in just nine days time, Liverpool are quickly running out of time.
So, what’s the reason behind their almost non-existent business this summer?
Well, Liverpool fan and football finance expert @MoChatra has provided a detailed Twitter thread explaining exactly what is happening at Anfield right now.
“Is the club awash with money but the owners are refusing to spend it? Or is the piggy bank depleted? Hopefully this thread will help fans better understand the situation…”
