‘Privately, Liverpool insist their business for the window is done but perhaps Klopp could make one final foray.’
This is what Dominic King writes in the Daily Mail, following Liverpool’s miserable 2-0 loss to Burnley at the weekend.
Goals from Sam Vokes and Andre Gray saw the Turf Moor outfit collect the three points and Liverpool’s team collectively ridiculed for an appalling performance in which we had 81% possession but zero bite or creativity.
As a result, fans after the game urged the manager to enter the transfer market to sign reinforcements, but according to King, there are no plans to do so..
Klopp’s quotes back this up.
“If one game changed my mind then I would be a real idiot,” the German replied when asked about Saturday’s loss would force Liverpool into doing business. “But the answer is I don’t know.”
We have signed six new players this summer, but let a large number go – meaning we’ve actually made a profit. There’s arguments that a central midfielder is needed, but for fans – the left-back is the most glaring problem position.
James Milner proved versus Burnley that he’s too right-footed to play there long-term, while Alberto Moreno’s defensive inefficiencies are well known.
