A number of Liverpool supporters are fuming after a report claimed that youngster Conor Bradley could be considered a right-back option next season.
The Reds ended up salvaging their 2020/21 season by finishing third but it was a hugely taxing campaign which threatened to be a disaster at one point. One player who struggled to consistently find his best level was Trent Alexander-Arnold, with the 22-year-old arguably overplayed at right-back.
A lack of a top-quality replacement was arguably a key reason for this, with Neco Williams still an inexperienced player learning his trade. The Welshman could even leave Liverpool this summer, and while that would further highlight the need to sign a new right-back, a fresh update may suggest otherwise.
According to The Athletic [via Watch LFC on Twitter], 17-year-old Bradley could be viewed as a squad option next season, instead of a new signing coming in. The teenager is a regular presence in the Reds’ underage sides but has never so much as been included in a first team matchday squad (Transfermarkt).
Liverpool fans fume at Bradley update
These Liverpool fans took to Twitter to vent their fury at the report.
“Translation: we’re selling Neco Williams and we ain’t getting a replacement“
“What is wrong with this club? Do we actually not have money to improve depth and cover it up by making out as if the academy is good, or are they just blatantly stupid?“
“It’ll be Milner“
“I hate this club“
In other news, some Liverpool fans have been bemoaning a key update from a reliable journalist. Read more here.
