This season has been a wild ride for Kopites. The Reds have been through an injury crisis and a half, we’re still in the midst of it. Just how we’re still in the mix is beyond us. On deadline day the club went some way to alleviating the problems. Some Liverpool fans have reacted to Ozan Kabak finally being pictured at the club.
Why we needed Kabak
When the Reds sold Dejan Lovren without replacing him there was a feeling that they were taking a bit of a risk.
However, Virgil van Dijk had an impeccable injury record and we had faith in Joe Gomez.
By mid-November both players had been ruled out for the rest of the season with serious knee injuries.
Joel Matip fought on for a while but he’s also been sidelined for the rest of the campaign.

A new arrival or two was a complete necessity.
Liverpool sign Ozan Kabak
The Reds had been linked with dozens of defenders in the past year, rumours intensifying when we lost our starting centre back pairing.
One name had been mentioned thousands of times in the past year.
Eventually, on deadline day, Liverpool signed Ozan Kabak from Schalke.
The Turkish defender arrived on loan with an option for the Reds to make the move permanent for a fee of £18m.
Jürgen Klopp’s side also added Ben Davies from Preston North End, gazumping Celtic at the last minute.
Twitter reacts to Kabak arrival
After months of links, Liverpool finally tweeted photos of Ozan Kabak in the famous Red kit.
