Jürgen Klopp has stayed true to his word until now.
Five days after Liverpool lifted Their first title in 30 years When the agenda shift.
The transfer window was open for hours and questions turned to how Klopp and his club dealt with her.
With more than two months of negotiation ahead of sporting director Michael Edwards, the Reds coach announced that the wait game was underway.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread and uncertainty over the club’s finances persists, Liverpool will be in no hurry to wade into the market first.
Instead, Klopp asked for patience.
“As long as we don’t know exactly about things, we have to wait.” Klopp insisted.
“We have a really good team, we see what we can do, we have to see what we have to do, and we still need more time.
“We hope the time brings more clarity about the future and then we’ll make our decisions.”
Almost two months after these words, LiverpoolThe band remains pretty much the same.
Costas Tsimikas’ £ 11.75million arrival from Olympiacos was largely paid for by Diane Lovren’s £ 10.9m exit. The names are still related to each other, but the Reds are waiting for their time.

Invitations to sign the fourth-choice center back continue Daily “updates” of Thiago Alcantara’s status Remain frequent.
The Reds are said to be awaiting the post-Champions League final on August 23 to start official talks with Bayern Munich.
After nearly a month, Thiago returned to training with Bayern Munich and Liverpool did not answer the phone to officials in Bavaria.
With just less Three weeks until the window closes, The Reds don’t have to move properly at this point, but a deadline of October 5 is starting to appear on the horizon.
Klopp is not used to leaving him late at the window, but there is one prominent ward that bucked the trend and could provide clues to the future.
There was less than 48 hours of transfer window in August 2017 when the Reds reached an agreement with Arsenal for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
It was 30 August when negotiations with Arsenal ended quickly after the Reds agreed to match Chelsea’s bid of 35 million pounds.
Arsenal had told Liverpool earlier that summer that Oxlade-Chamberlain was not for sale, but had to change his mind late after he refused his £ 180,000 a week contract bid.
A doctor booked in St George’s Park for the next day and completed a big financial leap with hours to save on deadline day more than three years ago.
The deal was a testament to how the landscape of a particular situation can rapidly change while also providing hope for anyone considering a late fall in the market.
Jürgen Klopp has so far proven himself a man who sticks to his word in this window, but this waiting game may be coming to an end as we approach October 5.
