Ex- Man Utd midfielder gives transfer advice to Liverpool boss Klopp

Former Manchester United midfielder Gordon Strachan doesn’t think Jurgen Klopp should bring in any players during the January transfer window.

Liverpool have suffered with injuries at centre-back over the last few months with midfielder Fabinho likely to partner Virgil van Dijk in defence against Brighton on Saturday.

Joe Gomez and Joel Matip are currently sidelines, while Dejan Lovren picked up a hamstring injury in Liverpool’s 2-1 loss in the FA Cup against Wolves, with 16-year-old Ki-Jana Hoever making his debut off the bench to fill in.

When Strachan was asked whether Klopp should make any signings to cover for injuries, he told Sky Sports: “No. I don’t think because there are too many good players there to bring someone else in.

“It’s unfair on the kids you’re bringing in because he’s known ‘if I get in there, play a couple of games, it might be a time’.

“If they really think it’s long-term injuries, okay, but I think they can go two or three games.

“Somebody will come back but with Joe Gomez, he’s the most exciting one out of the lot of them.

“He can do the lot, he can. The other ones are good players but have faults but Gomez can come through without any faults.

“I wouldn’t take a chance and I wouldn’t look to panic after.”
