Liverpool must regret selling these 3 players go too early in their careers

As Liverpool march towards their first Premier League title this year, there are a number of players dotted around football who the Reds must regret selling.

Most clubs do it, in fairness. Whether it be a young player or a new signing, sometimes it looks like things aren’t going to work out and the club moves the player swiftly on.

Chelsea are a club well-known for this. The likes of Mo Salah and Kevin De Bruyne just two shining examples.

However, Liverpool are not without their own mistakes in the last few years and before.

The Reds have allowed a number of players to leave who’ve gone on to be regulars at elite clubs. It goes without saying, then, that there’ll be some regrets amongst the Liverpool ranks with a few names.

With that in mind, here’s a look at THREE Liverpool players the Reds will surely regret selling or releasing, so early.

Conor Coady

An obvious place to start but Liverpool will look back on the sale of Coady to Huddersfield as something of a regret.

Coady has gone on to be the Wolves captain and lead Nuno Santo’s men into Europe this season. He’s proven to be adaptable, too, changing his game to play a deeper role at the heart of a back three.

It was surprising to see Coady sold, in all honesty. After a brilliant loan spell with Sheffield United, it looked like Coady might get a shot at Anfield.


Things weren’t to be, though, and the 27-year-old has forged a fine career in the Premier League regardless.


While at the time, admittedly, it didn’t look like the Spaniard was going to pull up many trees, the attacking midfielder has gone on to forge a fine career.

A regular for AC Milan over the last four or five years, Suso has developed into the sort of player his potential as a teenager had him down to be.

He did make a handful of appearances for the Reds but was never quite given a full run in the first XI. However, he’s since been capped five times by Spain and proven to be a real talent on the continent.

Iago Aspas

Spanish striker Aspas is a classic case of what might have been for a club like Liverpool.

The forward was tasked with trying to replace some of the goals lost when Luis Suarez had moved away from the club but suffered a disastrous time at Anfield.

Aspas failed to register a single goal for the Reds before being shipped out to Celta on loan, and then, permanently.

Celta has been the making of Aspas, however. He’s since gone on to become a regular for Spain and has scored an impressive 84 league goals for the Spanish outfit since 2015.
