Following the official news that defender Nathaniel Clyne will depart Liverpool at the end of the month, plenty of Liverpool fans have fumed over the decision to not offer him a contract extension to see out our Premier League title-winning campaign.
Clyne, who will end a five-year stay at Anfield on June 30, won’t be around for long enough to celebrate the Reds’ first title triumph in 30 years and will also be unable to get his hands on a winners medal.
Should Clyne have been given an extension?
Yes, could have got a Premier League winners medal
The Englishman, failing to make a single appearance this season under Jurgen Klopp, was out for nearly a year with a cruciate ligament rupture – and supporters are now reacting to the ‘sad news‘ that he won’t be able to challenge Trent Alexander-Arnold for a right-back slot in future.
While Liverpool have both Alexander-Arnold and Neco Williams in that position, supporters still detest the fact Clyne’s Merseyside stint ended this way – find all of their reactions to the update down below.
Sad news tbh but I hope he can have a great future as his career was on a declyne the last few years.

Big respect clyne, some people might have forgotten how solid you were between 2015-2017 but I certainly haven’t, just remember when our defence was a shambles Clyne was the only player to maintain some consistency and defended well, good luck for the future,deserves recognition!

A shame how it ended. Started off very promising. Defensively he was exceptional. His performance vs Man U last seasons shows he still can perform. All the best to him.

A real shame. A top quality right back before the emergence of Trent. Would’ve liked for him to have a chance of getting a medal but we understand. Thank you Edwin. We wish you all the best in what comes next for you. YNWA. pic.twitter.com/daAKrYbetM

He deserves a medal, I don’t care.

Feel for Clyne, was one of the most consistent players at the club before his injury. Would’ve been nice to see him get a PL medal
