According to a report from reliable journalist Paul Joyce in The Times, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp may be hesitant to buy a left-back in the summer as an understudy to Andrew Robertson – with supporters since going on to react to the news. 

Robertson, who has started 27 games for us this season in the full-back area, scoring one goal and assisting seven others, appears to have few back up options that can potentially challenge him for a place in the side.

However, as explained by Joyce, Klopp may not want to invest in another specialist left-back given he would most likely be surplus to requirement most weeks – with the German boss apparently valuing versatile options that can fulfil the role in Robertson’s absence.

Should Liverpool sign a new left-back?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Reacting to the news, one fan in particular laid the blame on Fenway Sports Group, hinting that they would possibly dismiss the notion of buying another defender when James Milner can also play in the left-back position.

Here’s how other fans also responded to the report on Twitter.
