‘Klopp has had it his own way for the last two years’ – Cole has no sympathy for Liverpool’s injury struggles

Jurgen Klopp has “had it his own way for the last two years” at Liverpool, says Joe Cole, with the former Reds midfielder having little sympathy for those at Anfield as they manage their way through an injury crisis.

Key men across the field, from back to front, have taken in spells on the treatment table, with defence proving to be a particular area of concern as options have been decimated.

Liverpool sought to address those issues towards the end of the winter transfer window, bringing in Ben Davies and Ozan Kabak, but more was expected and Cole is surprised that “some big money” was not thrown at obvious problems.

The ex-Reds midfielder says the reigning English champions can have no complaints at finding themselves in this situation, with good fortune deserting them, and considers it to be “a miracle” that domestic and continental success remains up for grabs.

“I don’t necessarily feel for Jurgen Klopp because he’s had it his own way for the last two years but he has had it tough with injuries this year,” Cole told talkSPORT.

“I can’t see how they can do it retain their title. I love Jordan Henderson, I think he’s done a great job but when you drop a player in that specific role to play centre-half, it’s tough.

“We had a similar spell at Chelsea withinjuries to Ricardo Carvalho, William Gallas and John Terry and we ended up playing with Michael Essien and Paulo Ferreira, who were fantastic players in their own right but having to shuffle your own centre-halves is a recipe for disaster.

“I think it’s a miracle that they’re in touching distance, missing Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip for so long so I can’t seeLiverpoolgetting a result at the weekend.

“I’m surprised they didn’t go and spend some big money just to keep that momentum going in January.”
