Download Chris Kamara Has Defended Liverpool’s Transfer Business This Summer
Liverpool have so far signed just Kostas Tsimikas for their title defence, whilst the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City have spent big in an attempt to catch the Premier League champions.
It has led to speculation that the Reds may see a drop in performances compared to last season, yet Kamara feels it would have been difficult for Klopp to strengthen his side.
Instead, the Sky Sports pundit says there were no weaknesses for the Reds to improve upon.
He told Footstock: “Some might ask why Liverpool haven’t spent much money given the way their rivals are going about the transfer market, but it’s hard to go out and buy top-class players when you already have them in your side.
“When a club gets to the level that Liverpool have, if you bring in someone of top-quality where does he fit in?

“Yes it improves the squad, but do these sort of players really want to sit on the bench? Once you start winning things and players become accustomed to being in the side more often than not, if you go out and sign someone there’s a potential it can upset the applecart.
“It’s a problem that all the top teams and top managers have to deal with and it will be interesting to see what Klopp does between now and the end of the transfer window.
“If you identify a weakness, then of course go out and fix it, but where are the weaknesses in this Liverpool side? I can’t see too many.”
Despite this, Kamara says it will be a tough ask for the Reds to retain the title.
He feels that the pressure on Klopp’s side, combined with playing behind closed doors, may see them struggle to match the heights of last season.
Kamara said: “When a side tries to retain the title, there’s considerably more pressure than there was the first time.
“The players know they have to win a certain amount of games in order to win it again and that isn’t easy to cope with. We saw it affect Manchester City last season and it’s why so many teams fail to win the league back-to-back.
” Liverpool are now the biggest scalp in the league and all the other teams are vying to knock them off their perch. You have to play to your maximum week-after-week and if you fall below that standard, teams will beat you.
“I think it’s going to be tough for them to retain it, I must admit. The way the other sides are strengthening as well as the fact they won’t have the Anfield crowd behind them just makes me think it will be hard for them to win the league again.
“That’s not to say they can’t because they showed what a fantastic team they are last season, but those factors just make me think it won’t be them celebrating come the end of the season.”
