‘Been told’ – Florian Plettenberg drops Liverpool transfer claim as FSG to back Klopp big

Posted by

The need for investment in Liverpool Football Club – specifically as far as the squad is concerned – couldn’t be clearer in light of the drop-off in performance levels this term.

The midfield department will need to be the area of focus for Julian Ward and his recruitment team, though it appears they’ll be fully backed by FSG in that regard following Florian Plettenberg’s update on Twitter.

There are a number of options the club could pursue in the winter window with the likes of Joao Gomes, Konrad Laimer, Enzo Fernandez among the players heavily linked in the summer.

It’s very good news that our owners reportedly wish to go big in 2023 with investment in ‘top transfers’, though one might imagine that such backing will depend in large part on whether we make the top four spots come the end of the season.

Which is exactly why it’s so critical we sign at least one new midfielder in January to inspire some serious improvement in a department that is in desperate need of quality and consistency.

  1. There is a dire need for LFC to sign a midfielder in the January transfer window rather than making Klop a scapegoat for the club’s poor perfomances. It will be naivety to scapegoat the situation as Klop’s own doing. Every reasoning person is aware that LFC took a huge risk ever to not strengthen in the August window. The injuries to key players couldn’t do the club any good. No club can do better without its best players. For instance Arsenal cannot do good if G.Jesus and Saka are injured even for 3 weeks so as Man.City with absences of Debryne and Foden..That assertion cannot be disputed let alone some imbeciles saying it is an excuse.

  2. Were it Pep or Conte the manager of LFC the so called owners could have learned a lesson by now. These two cannot withstand the naivety of FSG.Ask Inter milan for instance. When Inter decided to sell Lukaku instead of strengthening Conte told them on their faces that he was leaving and so he did.The so two managers cannot allow their reputations to be tarnished like Klop

  3. If we get top four, how feckin stupid. The reason why we wont get top four is the lack of strategic signings. Arthur Melo last minute loan from Juve.
