Jurgen Klopp has spoken on the growing influence of the Saudi Arabia in football, while calling on football's governing bodies to look at the length of the Pro League's transfer window in comparison to Europe.
Asked about Saudi influence in his pre-match press conference prior to Wednesday's pre-season clash with Bayern, Klopp revealed his concern that while the transfer deadline across Europe is 1 September, the Pro League's runs for another 19 days.
This means that European sides risk seeing their players targeted and unsettled, while clubs can no longer bring in replacements.
"It is massive, in the moment," Klopp said, via the BBC.
"Pretty much the worst thing I think is that the transfer window in Saudi Arabia is open three weeks longer. If I am right, I heard something like that, then at least in Europe that's not helpful.
"Uefa or Fifa must find solutions for that. But in the end, at this moment, I don't know exactly what will happen."
In addition to Henderson (Al Ettifaq) and Fabinho (Al Ittihad), Roberto Firmino joined Al Ahli upon expiry of his Liverpool contract this summer, while another Reds legend in Sadio Mane appears set for Al Nassr – the club which Cristiano Ronaldo captains.
