Klopp explains transfer plans over left-back spot

Jurgen Klopp has explained why Liverpool will not be looking to sign a left-back in the summer.

The Reds started the season with Alberto Moreno in the starting line-up, but the Spaniard was dropped after just one Premier League game – the 4-3 win over Arsenal.

James Milner has since made the position his own after making the transition from midfield, and the former England international has taken to the role well. We’ve certainly been proven wrong.

Klopp has suggested that he is happy enough with his options to not seek another left-back in the transfer window.

“What I can say is that I didn’t think for a second until now about another left-back,” he said.

“We are always looking for players but in this moment we have two left-backs – Milly is one and Alberto Moreno the other.

“If you wanted to see a positive at Plymouth it was at left-back because Alberto was good. He made no mistakes and that was with no rhythm coming into the game.

“Our situation is this position is really comfortable. Milly is still able to play other positions. He can play in the half space, can play offensive winger and No 8 – that’s good.

“Left full-back is a position where you can never have enough. If you’re looking for one, you won’t find one. If you’re not looking sometimes you get one or two opportunities to have one but it is about having the right one. It’s not at the top of our list of things.”
