Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has admitted that he is “not happy” about Manchester United re-signing Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Red Devils had three major arrivals this summer, with Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane, as well as Ronaldo making a move to Old Trafford.

The Portuguese star has already had an instant impact on the team, scoring two goals in his debut game against Newcastle United on Saturday.

“Am I happy that he is at United? No, I can’t say that,” Klopp told Sky Sports while asked if he was “too good a player”, the German manager continued: “Yes, unfortunately.

“I was surprised, not about United, him going in there in the end, but when I first heard the rumours about him wanting to leave Juventus. I had no idea about that. I am not in the Juventus circle when people inform me from time to time about what is going on there, so I was surprised about that.

“He was going to City and I thought ‘oh, that could be fun for United’ and then, obviously, United stepped in and did it.

“It’s all fine. It’s a free world and they can do what they want.”
