Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said yesterday that the Reds are ‘unlikely’ to sign a new protector in the January transfer window.

Both Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk are long term absentees, while Joel Matip is injury susceptible and presently out hurt.
Fabinho, a natural main defensive midfielder, has actually played as a makeshift centre-back this season, while Klopp has actually kept faith in young academy talents like Nathaniel Phillips and Rhys Williams.
Liverpool have been linked with a host of leading European centrebacks consisting of Sergio Ramos, but it appears Klopp has other plans. While he didn’t rule out the possibility of signing a protector entirely, he confessed chances are really slim.
Lots of Liverpool fans have actually vented their aggravation on Twitter after hearing Klopp’s comments, with one fan even claiming it is an ‘unambitious’ move from the club.
Extremely reckless and unambitious from the club.

might aswell toss the season in the bin then, can’t keep playing midfielders there and matip is as beneficial as a 3 legged horse

I hope VVD is ahead of schedule due to the fact that we can’t keep playing with no senior CB’S doing that would provide city a huge advantage on us specifically now they’re picking up some momentum

I will support every decision to the hilt however this is beginning to look a little ridiculous

We do not purchase we will not win nothing. Problem we have is fab moving to CB.

I don’t comprehend why we wouldn’t get a CB even on a short-term loan makes no sense

What do some fans desire. Let’s go spend a lot for a CB. When all back from injuries we will have too many, less possibility for youth and greater wage costs with no incoming funds at moment. There is a bigger picture than just this season. Yes it’s aggravating but it’s way is.
