Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes players can make enough money in European football to not have to consider the mega-millions on offer in the Chinese Super League.

“I know of a few clubs in the rest of Europe think similar things about England,” said the German, when asked about the spending power of China. In nearly all the big European leagues you can earn a lot of money and it should be enough in the end — especially for top players. At this moment it (China) is not a league where you actually want to play and the only way to bring players there is the money. If players decide to go there you have no weapons to hold them here. I think all the relations following the family of Oscar are happy about this decision. No money worries any more! I have no idea how people make decisions like this but for me it is no option. Maybe for a holiday but at this moment it is no option for me to go to China.”
