Many Liverpool fans have been reacting to an update provided by transfer expert Fabrizio Romano on social media.
Segments of the Kop faithful have been urging manager Jurgen Klopp and sporting director Michael Edwards to sign a centre-back this month – on the back of serious injuries to Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez.
Klopp previously confirmed that the Premier League champions have no intention of signing a defender this window, despite continued fitness concerns with Joel Matip.
Romano elaborated on this (cited by Anfield Edition) by suggesting that players are not keen on the idea of an Anfield move – due to the fact that there is an intense battle for places in Klopp’s starting lineup.
Do you think Liverpool will sign a new centre-back during this January window?
Because of this, supporters believed players should only be brought to the club who want to be there, and those who possess the correct positive mindset to compete.
Fans react to Romano update
“Keep them away then, to play for Liverpool Football Club you have to have a winning mentality”
“Weak mentality. Look at Jota.”
“Not sure these players are the ones we need then. If they don’t even believe in themselves to eventually break into the 1st team then they’re probably not good enough…”
“Sounds like spin from the club to not get a CB to me”
“Fight for your place! We want a place where players want to better themselves. Fight and improve!”
“Boom!! If a player only thinks he’s good enough for the bench then he’s not good enough! Spot on”
