Liverpool and Manchester City. Manchester City and Liverpool.
The sample that the great operations of today only compete in the elite with many millions in between.
Some believe that spending large amounts of money is bad. That is incorrect.
It is bad to spend money when there is not a project that develops all the investment, as with Manchester United. Millions everywhere, but your team plays just like the friends in your neighborhood.
Guardiola and Klopp head teams that understand that investments and projects go hand in hand. They are great technicians, but nothing that was seen on the court would be possible without a lot of behind-the-scenes office work.
The Klopp case
The beginning of the Klopp era demonstrated his game idea. It is true that the team changed. Rock n ‘roll began to be heard, although some notes were still needed.
He did it well, he gained confidence. Big investments came.
Virgil Van Dijk, the most expensive defender in the history of football, was an exclusive request that from the first moment raised the level of the defense, a low point of the Reds. This season the offensive trident stop being the most attractive, as it won the defensive solidity and the tactical approaches that arise from it.
Fabinho and Keita, little by little, will prove the same. Klopp only buys nuts that allow him to adjust his machine. You just have to see the last double of Shaqiri.
The backing of Guardiola
Pep Guardiola is a genius. The managers of Manchester City also are.
Who is possibly the most influential coach of today, has always made it clear that to play like this, it is necessary to spend. And spend millions.
If Pep says it, it is a commandment.
Kevin De Bruyne, Ederson, Bernardo Silva, Gabriel Jesus. Everyone agrees with him.
While there are teams with good football, the millions are the ones who give the touch to be considered a competitive rival. Of course, titles play an important role.
