Liverpool fans slammed the performance of Herbie Kane following his side’s 5-0 defeat against Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup quarter-final on Tuesday.
The Reds fielded a young and inexperienced side after the decision was taken by the EFL to play the domestic cup tie in Birmingham, the day before Jurgen Klopp’s side were scheduled to play in the Club World Cup in Qatar.
As a result, the Merseyside bowed out of the League Cup and were heavily beaten by an older and far more experienced outfit in the Villans.
Kane, who made 49 appearances for Doncaster Rovers on loan last season, was criticised by fans due to his poor passing and his finishing.
Supporters were critical of Kane’s performance and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan said that he plays as if he is “driving a wind-up car”, while another suggested that he should be released in January.
Here you will find some of the best comments from Liverpool fans:
Dont want to sound harsh but at 22 Herbie Kane doesn’t have a future at the club and should be released in January to allow him to get fixed up.

Herbie Kane got the energy of a 21 year old but looks like he drives a wind up car that goes ahooga

Herbie Kane is the oldest player in our team but may actually be the worst football I’ve ever watched
I could pass with more accuracy than him with my legs tied together and blindfolded

I have to hold my hands up and admit we were wrong to say Herbie Kane and Pedro Chirivella were world class https://t.co/GTDTYWhTtg

I’m convinced Herbie Kane has an uncle that’s a coach at the club

I now understand why Herbie Kane is 21 years of age and never made a Liverpool appearance before today.
