Liverpool Relegated Player Transfer Roulette

Liverpool Relegated Player Transfer Roulette

Liverpool have already felt the brunt of the financial pinch caused by the ongoing pandemic.

From winger to goal-scorer: A tactical look at Sadio Mané’s development

When Liverpool signed Sadio Mané from Southampton in the summer of 2016, many would have been forgiven for thinking that he would be just another Southampton signing on Merseyside. Around the same time, the Club had signed others from the South coast including Dejan Lovren, Nathaniel Clyne, Adam Lallana and, previously, Rickie Lambert. Some of which failed to live up to their hefty price tags. However, the development of Sadio Mané over the last three years has turned him into …

Yet subject it to serious trauma, and suddenly that rationality gets chipped away, slowly but surely, until the horrors of what once was, murk what actually is. Case in point. Sheffield United and Liverpool were at a stalemate. Liverpool were lacklustre, and the chances they did have were being spurned. It was, to put it colloquially, “one …
