“It’s been an absolute mess – it’s a joke.
“The major trouble is that Liverpool have identified they require midfield reinforcements because August final year, so 12 months in the past.
“People believe I defend FSG, I have no marriage with them at all. But this is not on the house owners, this is on the structure of the soccer club when you go back again two decades when Liverpool were the product for each workforce in Europe, not just the Leading League, to observe.
“When Liverpool have been successful the league and acquiring to Champions League finals, what are Liverpool performing? They are not spending as a lot cash as other teams, but they were being making these players.
“Yes they’ve obtained a good supervisor but they experienced a male called Michael Edwards at the top rated of the club as a director of football and a transfer committee – or regardless of what you want to simply call them – beneath him and it labored.
“He still left and his no.2 took in excess of and was in the career for six months and then he moved on – you’ve got to ask why these individuals are going on from the football club.

“Liverpool have not obtained offers more than the line and it’s been uncomfortable that you start off with Lavia and will not pay out a certain amount, you then go for Caicedo and you get one thing agreed – that’s why I will not be important of the owners mainly because they were prepared to pay out £110million and crack the transfer history – but to go with him when he’s been conversing to Chelsea for 3 month, but then they go back to Lavia – it is an absolute mess.”
