A number of Liverpool supporters are relieved that the Reds didn’t sign Renato Sanches after the Lille midfielder picked up a knee injury in recent days.
Jurgen Klopp’s men got their 2021/22 Premier League season off to a winning start on Saturday, clinching a 3-0 victory away to Norwich City. Liverpool were imperious for much of the game at Carrow Road, silencing the doubters and showing that they will likely be title contenders once again.
It has been a quiet summer on the transfer front at Anfield, with Gini Wijnaldum’s departure to Paris Saint-Germain potentially heightening the need for a new central midfielder to come in.
Sanches is one player who has been linked with a move to Liverpool, but a transfer hasn’t materialised and he has now picked up a knee injury which will require surgery, as reported by L’Equipe [via LFC Transfer Room on Twitter].
Liverpool fans react to Renato Sanches update
These Liverpool fans took to Twitter to react to the news, claiming it is fortunate that the Reds didn’t sign the injury-prone Portugal international following this latest setback.
“Put a line through that then“
“Hope the best for him but happy that it means we won’t go for him. That was the exact reason I wasn’t convinced. Baller though.“
“LOOOOL next target“
“Glad we stayed clear. In hindsight wanting him to replace Gini was a bit ridiculous…“
“Glad we didn’t get him“
