How about looking at last years targets and discuss if you would still take them.
1.78m = 5ft 10. The lad from Hull is 7cm taller than Moreno and 3cm taller than Clyne. No idea what he’s like though!
i feel like he sees there are no great Left backs in the market and he would rather get an understudy that is not a huge risk, bring in a strong middle of the park: i.e. van dijk and keita, and bring in a winger because that is what killed us last year.
Amazing how many fans seem to disregard the fact that Klopp clearly thinks Milner is a perfectly good left back. I think we need to stop referring to him a “makeshift” or “stop-gap”.
Sure it would be nice to have someone with more of a left foot and a bit more pace, but Milner has a footballing brain, plenty of stamina, is not afraid to mix it up with a crunching tackle, and has a trick or two that allows him to beat a man on the outside.
Liverpool are trying to get a number of big expensive moves done this year, left back just isn’t that big a priority right now. They can review again next season.
