We really don’t think there’s too much to be excited about in the coming days, with the transfer window closing on Wednesday evening.
Despite the fact we sold Coutinho for £142m and are likely to offload Daniel Sturridge as well, Jurgen Klopp has told supporters that we’re not going to bring in any replacements.
The boss was speaking ahead of the Huddersfield game tomorrow evening, as reported by the Echo.
“Philippe Coutinho is not to be replaced in this transfer window. We have to stop thinking about it. It’s not about replacing anybody. It’s about using our own opportunities, tools, players, tactics, all that stuff,” he said.
‘The solutions is not out there in the transfer market at the moment. There is not something out there for us to get because we think first of all we have to use our players.’
“I don’t think Phil would have helped a lot in these situations, fantastic player but that wasn’t the problem. We need to find the way back to the winning track. The solution is not out there on the transfer market.”
Arsenal lost Alexis Sanchez and replaced him with Henrikh Mkhitaryan and imminently Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, but Liverpool are actually not going to reinvest.
We’ve lost our past two matches via horrible performances and the squad needs bolstering, but for whatever reason, Klopp disagrees.
It makes absolutely no sense to us, especially with Adam Lallana’s recurring injuries.
The Englishman has actually missed more games for Liverpool on the sidelines than Sturridge since he arrived in 2014 – amazingly.
