Much to Liverpool fans discontent, the club are expected not to sign a new left back this summer – Indigo Pearce reports
The club’s current only left back Alberto Moreno, who gave a away a clumsy penalty in the first game of the season against Arsenal, is expected to be given another chance. Jurgen Klopp is said to be impressed by the full back’s desire to improve and work ethic, despite the clear flaws in his defensive game recently seen.
However, utility midfielder and wide man James Milner will take on a new role at the club, as a full back.
James Milner is expected to replace the much criticised Alberto Moreno as starting choice left back for Liverpool’s league trip to Burnley on Saturday, a decision that will shock many but may have some sense in regards to defensive stability.
A new left back is not expected to be signed.
