Lawrenson to Klopp: Let’s see what Ozan Kabak has to offer

Liverpool new man Kabak


LIverpool legend Mark Lawrenson has urged Jurgen Klopp to play new arrival Ozan Kabak.

The 20-year-old centre-back has joined the Reds on loan from Schalke for the rest of the season.

He told Off the Ball: “The thing with Liverpool is, and it’s a good thing in many ways as now they can just forget about ambitions of winning the league and start playing again.

“The other day somebody said look that they had to cover for [Virgil] van Dijk and [Joe] Gomez etc, but now the time is basically that he is got to pick his best midfield.

“We know what the front three would generally be and say, that right boys let’s just go out, let’s get back to the good old days of pressing etc and let’s spend most of the match in the opposition’s half and therefore making chances and scoring goals.

“Just give a young kid a run and the new boy they signed from Schalke, [Ozan] Kabak, and what’s the worst thing that can happen?

“They are not winning games. I don’t know what the record is in the last ten, but it is really poor.

“Go back to making your strength strength again, take Fabinho and Henderson out and put them in midfield.

“And just start winning football matches.”
