Lots of Liverpool fans are questioning a decision from Jurgen Klopp, as he added some of the youngsters who took on Aston Villa to his Club World Cup squad.
After the win against Monterrey, the Reds’ first-team will be joined by Sepp van den Berg, Ki-Jana Hoever and Caoimhin Kelleher, per The Liverpool Echo’s Paul Gorst, who all took part in the 5-0 defeat to Aston Villa on Tuesday evening.
Plenty of Reds fans have been left baffled by Klopp’s decision though, especially considering van den Berg was one of the few players who was heavily criticised on Tuesday, while Kelleher was also unimpressive, conceding five goals from just seven shots on target.
One would have to assume the manager’s choice is something to do with the lack of options he has at centre-back – Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip are both currently injured – but Kelleher’s inclusion is bizarre as it means there are now four Reds shot-stoppers in Qatar.

Not sure why Caoimhin is going as we already have 3 keepers out there. Shame that the best prospect is left at home…strange decision…
