Liverpool need to address full-back issues

Liverpool need to address full-back issues

Liverpool have somehow managed to time and again overlook their weaknesses in the transfer windows. The issue of a proper defensive midfielder missing from the club is testament to this problem persisting at the club. By the looks of it, Liverpool are set on following the same trend and seemingly, no new full-back additions have been made. Liverpool currently have Alberto Moreno as their primary left-back, someone who could be John Arne Riise one second and Jose Enrique the next. …

Rodgers Out, Or We're Out

Alberto Moreno | Stats Comparison to Johnson, Flanagan and Enrique

Liverpool have seemingly always had a long standing problem when it comes to acquiring the perfect left back. In the last ten years or so there have been many triers but not so many doers.
