Liverpool told NOT to spend money on new players

Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino thinks Liverpool don’t need new transfers on January.

Jurgen Klopp’s side has won the match against Brighton & Hove Albion and keep leading in EPL table with only one defeat in 22 matches.

However, German manager has serious selection problems, as three center backs, including Dejan Lovren, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez are injured. Fabinho has been used in latest matches as a center back alongside with Virgil Van Dijk.

“Jurgen Klopp deserves a lot of credit for playing Fabinho at centre-back against Brighton & Hove Albion,” he wrote in his Times column (via LiverpoolECHO). “I don’t understand why more teams don’t do something similar.

“Yes he’s a defensive midfielder but they can do a job at the back. Most teams don’t play two strikers anyway these days and the likes of Fabinho, Nemanja Matic and Fernandinho could all do it. Liverpool don’t need to waste any money on a centre back this month. And, let’s face it, I could probably play alongside Virgil van Dijk.” he added.
