'He knows what he's doing': Carragher slams Liverpool player for sly 42nd minute moment vs Leeds
Liverpool lost out against Leeds at home last night and Jamie Carragher had a few negative things to say during the game about Klopp’s side.
The Reds had got back to 1-1 but a poor second 45 minutes allowed Crycensio Summerville to roll in a deserved winner for the Whites.
For Liverpool, it was yet more frustration in a season full of similar moments. They seem to keep winning in Europe before crashing back to earth in the Premier League. And those frustrations seemed evident early on in the game as well, as Andy Robertson demonstrated.
The Scot clashed with Leeds’ Brendan Aaronson and seemed to kick out at the American. And spotting the incident, Carragher felt the reaction from Robertson was a bit naughty.
“Robertson shouldn’t have done that, he kicked the ball at the player on the floor. He knows what he’s doing,” Carragher said on Sky co-comms.
Robertson was involved in a few moments which didn’t sit well with Carragher in the game. The Sky man called Robertson ‘stupid’ later on in the game. That came after the Liverpool left-back left a foot in on Illan Meslier.
Certainly, Robertson’s actions seemed to sum up a Liverpool side simply not at the races.
TBR’s View: Robertson and Liverpool anger shows struggles
Robertson plays with a fire in his belly anyway but these two moments were a little bit off. The kick from under Aaronson was a bit malicious while the one on Meslier was, as Carragher said, stupid.
Liverpool are a team miles off it at the moment. Gone are the days where they simply hammer whoever turns up to Anfield. They now look slow, lethargic, and out of ideas in the final third.
Jurgen Klopp has a big job on his hands right now and like Robertson yesterday, he will be a frustrated man this morning.
