Klopp Confirms How Liverpool’s January Transfer window Will Be Utilized

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admitted he will not be utilising the January transfer window to ease his problems in central defence.

The Reds boss seems happy to continue with the limited options he has at his disposal unless a gilt-edged opportunity arises.

Klopp currently has no fit senior centre-backs with Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez long-term absentees with serious knee injuries and Joel Matip sidelined for three weeks with a groin problem.

Fabinho has had to play the majority of the games in defence to cover and Klopp has relied on 19-year-old rookie Rhys Williams and Nat Phillips.

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher said it was “paramount” they signed a centre-back this month but Klopp is reluctant to spend just for the sake of it.

“We have solutions in the squad obviously but we struggled still with injuries,” said Klopp.

“For most of the time with centre-half position. It can happen like this when it starts and does not stop.

“We have solutions with the squad but if we can do something in the window I dunno, it is like that.

“It is a very difficult transfer window as you can imagine. Not all of the clubs have real money.”
