Jamie Carragher Points Finger Over Lack Of Signings

Jamie Carragher has spoken out about Liverpool’s failure to expand the squad in the January transfer window, a period that saw Liverpool crash out of both the EFL Cup and FA Cup as well as losing to relagation battles Swansea & Hull.

Carragher believes that Liverpool lack the quality on the bench that teams around them in the race to the top four have.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Carragher said, “Liverpool don’t have the squad to match the other teams and are in a major fight for the top four. For how great everything was going a few months ago, it shows how quickly everything can just unravel.”

“A major disappointment, whether it was down to the manager or the board, was not getting any reinforcements in in January. The players are there. I am not saying panic buy.”

“At this moment, there are lots of problems, defensively and in attack, but I am talking about in terms of numbers, Liverpool needed something.”

“If you look at Liverpool’s bench, they haven’t got anything like what Manchester United have got, City have got – these are the teams they are trying to compete with.”

“The fact that they haven’t reinforced from a position of strength – where they were in the league as the best challengers for Chelsea – has meant they have fallen away.”

“Certain players have been superb all season. You can’t expect the likes of Adam Lallana, Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho to keep up their levels, they need to come out of the team, not dropped, but just taken out for a couple of weeks to freshen them up, but there isn’t the players on the bench to do that.”

“Other sides have got that quality in reserve that Liverpool haven’t.”
