Jurgen Klopp joked Liverpool fans feel he is never busy enough in the transfer market as the Reds wait to make a major breakthrough.
Liverpool signed back-up left-back Konstantinos Tsimikas earlier this month but are yet to make a further move, despite repeated links to Bayern Munich’s Champions League winner Thiago Alcantara.
However, the Reds’ only senior signings at the start of last season, in which they won the Premier League title, were goalkeepers Adrian and Andy Lonergan.
Despite repeated calls from Anfield supporters to bring in an array of new names, Klopp – who has ruled out a sensational bid for Lionel Messi – feels his record is justified.
“We cannot just bring in five new players because people want to be busy with that,” he told reporters.
“Every year it has been pretty much the same, I don’t think any year I bought enough players in the transfer window for everybody.
“It was always, ‘ah, Jurgen we need another one’. So far, it has worked out. That doesn’t mean it will work out forever.
“We made mistakes and we will make mistakes, but it’s really all about what kind of mood we can create again for this season.
