Liverpool’s future defence

Of course, too much can be made of a few appearances, and a better judgement can be made of John Flanagan, but there is enough there from my point of view to allow him to be the primary backup to any left back who is brought in this summer. I am not going to tout him at England’s next great left back, as Paul Merson did after his performance v Arsenal, but along with Martin Kelly and John Flanagan, it must be said the Reds maybe looking at least 3 of their back four for many years to come.

For that reason, their growth should not be stunted by the Reds overspending in defensive areas this summer. Players such as Phlipp Degen, Emiliano Insua and Soto Kyrgiakos should be allowed to leave, but only a left back, and perhaps another centre-half, should be brought in as a replacement.

Like many other youth players at Liverpool at the moment, Jack Robinson looks to have all the necessary elements to become a star of Liverpool’s future.
