The Financial status of leagues and clubs around the world remain uncertain due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Asked if he required a bigger squad ahead of next season, Klopp said he needed time to assess Liverpool’s position.
“We are not only responsible for the success of the club, we are responsible for all the people in the club and that means for everybody that works here, that’s what we try to do,” the Liverpool manager told reporters.
“As long as we don’t know exactly about it, we have to wait. We have a really good squad, we have to see what we can do, we have to see what we have to do, for this we need still time.
“This time hopefully will bring a bit more clarity about the future and we will make our decisions, but the solution cannot be to have a much bigger squad for the specific moment and then realise that you cannot use all the players and stuff like this.”
