Ray Houghton says Fenway Sports Group (FSG) must back Jürgen Klopp in the summer if he is to be given a realistic chance at challenging next season.

The former Liverpool midfielder believes FSG owe it to Reds’ manager to fully support him during the summer transfer window after he secured a Top 4 Premier League finish yesterday after beating Middlesbrough 3-0.

“I can’t wait to see who he gets in,” said Houghton. “If you look at his record in the transfer market since he’s been here I think it’s actually positive, he’s £13million up.

“The owners owe it to him to give him some good money to go out and spend on the right players that are going to improve Liverpool next season and try to get even closer to the top teams because they are going to spend and there is only a small pool of talent in world football.

“You’ve got to be in the mix to try to get those to the club.”
