‘Says a lot’ – Jurgen Klopp told why he might have big concern over Liverpool summer signing
Liverpool summer signing Fabio Carvalho has impressed during the early weeks of his first season at Anfield
Jurgen Klopp has been told that the “last thing he needs” is an injury to Liverpool star Fabio Carvalho.
The Reds playmaker has made an impressive start to his first season at Anfield. Carvalho signed for Liverpool from Fulham earlier in the summer, for an initial fee of £5million plus add-ons that could bump the final cost up by a further £2.7m.
Carvalho scored his first goal for Liverpool during the 9-0 win over Bournemouth at the end of last month. Then, just a day after his 20th birthday, he scored a last-minute winner against Newcastle United in the Premier League.
The Reds No.28 was handed his first start of the season for Saturday’s Merseyside derby draw with Everton. However, he was withdrawn at half time with what Klopp later confirmed as a dead leg.
Former Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Paul Robinson has explained why he thinks a potential injury to Carvalho would be the last thing Klopp would want. The former stopper went on to praise the Liverpool youngster for the start he’s made to life at Anfield.
“Carvalho has made a really promising start,” Robinson told Football Insider.
“The fact that Klopp is willing to start him in a Merseyside derby at Goodison Park says a lot. Liverpool have got such a big injury list still, the last thing they need is Carvalho being out.
