“This is hard for me but I’ll love to go to…” – Watch long waited £103m transfer target arrives Liverpool after a major transfer warning and takes final decision on his immediate future
Liverpool sent ‘left behind’ warning as Jude Bellingham transfer claim made
Robbie Savage has warned Liverpool they risk getting “left behind” due to their season’s slow start.
As a squad in “transition” this season, pundit Robbie Savage has cautioned Liverpool that they risk getting “left behind.”
As a result of Sadio Mane’s departure and the addition of Darwin Nunez from Benfica, the Reds have made a lot of changes to their roster this summer.
Jurgen Klopp has struggled to make selections due to the midfield’s rising ailments, but replacements are anticipated in 2023.
With only two points out of a possible nine from their first three games, Liverpool’s season has off to its worst start under the current boss.
A depressing loss to Manchester United earlier this week added to the disappointment of draws against Fulham and Crystal Palace.
Jude Bellingham, who is reportedly a target, cannot come soon enough, according to Savage, who also issued a warning to teams in transition about falling behind.
He wrote in his column for the Mirror : “On the back of that performance on Monday night, when United were there for the taking, I have to ask: What has happened to Klopp’s heavy metal football?
” Where is that ruthless streak, that insatiable desire to win the ball back high up the pitch, the relentless press which leaves opponents camped in their own half?
“Although Klopp insists they have all bases covered in midfield, Liverpool looked short of X-factor in that department until Fabio Carvalho came on and made an impact as a sub at Old Trafford.
“With Thiago injured and Fabinho on the bench, Liverpool looked short of a killer pass and a creative force who could break United’s lines.
There has been talk over the summer of Jude Bellingham moving to Anfield.
“I don’t think it can happen in this window, but unless Liverpool break the shackles of their early-season lethargy he can’t come to Merseyside soon enough.
Liverpool may be going through a transitional period this season after narrowly missing out on a quadruple just months ago.
Teams in transition, however, tend to fall behind in the near term.
Liverpool’s next game is against Bournemouth at home on Saturday. In the following week, they host Newcastle at Anfield.
As they prepare for the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park the following weekend, victories are imperative.
