Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool manager says he is committed to the club despite ownership uncertainty
Jurgen Klopp, manager of Liverpool, has stated that he is devoted to the club regardless of what happens with the present ownership.
Fenway Sports Group (FSG) has said that they are seeking additional financing, however other rumours indicate that they are prepared to sell Liverpool entirely.
Some Liverpool supporters are concerned about potential instability at Anfield, as well as worries over Klopp’s future.
Liverpool won the Carabao Cup on penalties against Derby County on Wednesday.
For the first time since the FSG reports broke on Monday, Klopp declared he was staying put and that the news had not changed his intentions for the third-round match against the League One club.
“What I read is that they are looking for investment,” he said. “Good idea, I like that.
“But it didn’t distract preparation at all. The players didn’t ask me and, for me, it means nothing.
“I have a great relationship with FSG. I really like how it works but if it does change, I am committed to the club and that is nothing to do with the people here.”

Klopp said any comparison with Chelsea, whose new ownership also triggered massive changes behind the scenes and, eventually, the dismissal of manager Thomas Tuchel, are invalid.
“The situation is completely different,” he said. “Chelsea had to get sold because the owner was in trouble and there was urgency in the situation. We don’t have that here at all.
“It is important whilst this process is happening we just keep going and planning.
“These things take time and in that time we have to keep going. I will make sure that will be the case.
“At the moment nothing happened. It is just news. And nobody had a heart attack and went ‘oh my God’. Whatever happens we will deal with it.”
