Liverpool legend: 'In Jurgen, we trust.'

Sat 14 November 2020 | 20:18

Liverpool has found its hands tied by the shortage of options to pick players as they are putting up with many mistimed injuries and absences.

The Reds

ends up alarmingly short on defender alternatives heading towards the January moving window, yet Kenny Dalglish says "in Jurgen, we trust" as Klopp considers some important enlistment requests. 

Viewpoints on whether the Reds need to dunk into the January market stays blended. 

Some believe strengthening the squad is crucial in the wake of seeing

Joe Gomez

and

Virgil van Dijk

going under surgery due to knee injuries.

Others think The Reds should trust their current replacements until their gone aside stars come back to the pitch.

Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish is hesitant to situate himself in one or the other group, and he believes

Klopp

has made so little mistakes so far therefore he knows what's best for the team.

 “I'm trusting the manager to make the right decision - he has done so far!

“It's a really unfortunate thing, the transfer window is closed and we've picked up a few serious injuries and the likes of Thiago are still out too.

“But in Jurgen, we trust.

“There's no problem as he will make the right decision - the two boys in [Rhys] Williams and [Nat] Phillips did really well when they came in for the games they played.

“The manager has got options in those two but if it's possible to get a free transfer in then he might think that's the best route, but whatever he decides is the best route for Liverpool.”

Joel Matip is the main senior choice accessible to Klopp as of now, yet

Fabinho

is edging his path closer to wellness,

Jordan Henderson

could step in whenever needed and academy graduates

Phillips

and

Williams

have indicated that they can be depended upon in all tournaments.

“It's difficult for anybody to step in, but at 19 years of age Williams didn't do too badly against Atalanta,” Dalglish added.

“He was there and stood up, the first header he cleared everybody out and made sure it was his and Nat Phillips did well in the game at Anfield as well [against West Ham].

“Whether they're ready long-term it remains to be seen, but Nat was over in Germany on loan last season and did really well so maybe he is a little bit more experienced.

“As I say though, you've got a couple of choices there - they'll want to play.

“It might not be perfect timing for them because the next game is difficult against Leicester but Jurgen gets most of his decisions right and I have no doubt he'll get this one right too.”
