Jurgen Klopp has the final say over all signings at Liverpool, according to chief executive Ian Ayre.
Liverpool spent close to £300m during Brendan Rodgers’ time at the club but that spending came in for scrutiny with question marks raised over whether the Northern Irishman had last word on the deals.
Ayre dismissed that idea while addressing the Web Summit in Dublin, and claimed the scouting and recruitment process has been the same at the club for nearly a decade.
“There’s only one person that has the final say over what players at Liverpool Football Club and that’s Jurgen Klopp right now. That’s always been the case for as long as I’ve been here,” said Ayre.
“The words ‘transfer committee’ I think got used once and became this idea that we all sit round a table and have a vote on every player we sign. That couldn’t be further from the truth.”
