"Makes Zero Sense", "Stupid" — Liverpool Fans React to Latest Shock Klopp Decision

Share:

It was announced Friday afternoon that Liverpool defender Nathaniel Clyne has completed a loan move to Bournemouth until the end of the season in order to obtain the regular football that he has failed to gain thus far this term.

Although Klopp cited Clyne’s desire to get a move and the fact “we have options, younger boys coming up” as the factors in allowing the right-back to depart Anfield, many fans were baffled by the decision on Twitter — particularly due to how short it leaves Liverpool in the position:

 

You can understand the frustration from fan’s over Clyne being allowed to leave; the Reds are in the midst of a title race and still being involved in three competitions, it makes little sense to allow a right-back to leave when that’s arguably the position with the least amount of depth.

An established English international and an experienced head, Clyne proved when coming back into the side against Manchester United that he still has something to offer this Liverpool side and the decision to loan him out seems almost nonsensical.

Although James Milner and even Fabinho can fill in there, Klopp is now left with only Trent Alexander-Arnold as an option at right-back until Joe Gomez’s return from injury and even when fit, Gomez should always be preferred in the centre of defence.

Klopp’s decision is a strange one and even though he was likely eager to grant Clyne’s wish, perhaps the needs of the team should have been considered more rather than the individual on this occasion.
