Liverpool could take a leaf out of Manchester United’s book after the Red Devils confirmed the last-minute signing of Marcel Sabitzer on deadline day.
Jurgen Klopp’s side had an extremely quiet transfer window, only welcoming the signing of Cody Gakpo from PSV Eindhoven.
However, fans had been calling out for additions to the midfield, following a disastrous start to the Premier League season.
The likes of Jordan Henderson and Fabinho have been tremendously out of form, with both players looking like former shadows of themselves.
Despite this, the Merseyside outfit failed to rectify their issues in the middle of the park.
Man United, on the other hand, showed their arch-rivals on deadline day how they should have taken care of business.
Man United sign Sabitzer – Liverpool need to learn from this
Following the Red Devils’ FA Cup tie with Reading on Monday, Christian Eriksen was pictured leaving Old Trafford on crutches – having sustained an injury from a tackle made by Andy Carroll.
As a result, it was announced early on deadline day that the Denmark international would be out of action until late April.
With Donny van de Beek already ruled out for the season, United sprang into action.
With hours left of the window, the Red Devils managed to secure the loan signing of Bayern Munich midfielder Sabitzer.
Erik ten Hag had identified his side’s lack of options in the middle of the park, and by the end of the day, they had welcomed a more than adequate addition to their squad.
Liverpool, on the other hand, have experienced issues with their midfield since last season. The club chose not to do anything about it over the summer, and they further chose to ignore the problem in January.
The idea that there was nobody available on the market that would have made the Reds better, is absolutely ludicrous.
Liverpool needed to do what United did, but they flat out refused to.
This is definitely something which they need to learn from.
