Liverpool will sign Van Dijk for £75 million from Southampton, which beats the previous world record for a defender of £52 Million.
Was thinking that what England really needs is more Mauricio Pochettinos.Silly money paid for a average defender,Liverpool have more money then sense,I despair at times with the premier league,no young British players ever seen to given the prospect to develop ,thank God for Burnley and Bournemouth approach
Man City have spent big bucks but if they have bought mediocre players then it doesn’t say much for the rest of the premier league that those mediocre players are walking the league, and they destroyed Pochettinos team.Was thinking that what England really needs is more Mauricio Pochettinos.
What with Kane, Alli, Trippier, Rose, Dier, Winks, Walker & Clyne....about a third of the likely England World Cup squad got their Premier League opportunity under his watch. Whilst simultaneously Spurs and Southampton have had their best results in decades.
Meanwhile all the other clubs in the 'Big Six' would rather pay out obscene money on mediocre players than give young players a shot.
Likewise Naitland-Miles has played for Arsenal and a young keeper Macey has also been involved for them.Stupid prices can never be justified, but to balance things up, Joe Gomez, Trent Alexander Arnold and Dominic Solanke have all played league games at Liverpool this season.
What about Alexander Arnold?Silly money paid for a average defender,Liverpool have more money then sense,I despair at times with the premier league,no young British players ever seen to given the prospect to develop ,thank God for Burnley and Bournemouth approach
City wanted him. With Kompany injured yet again I wouldn't have bet against him getting in had they signed him.An interesting view. I reckon that Klopp, Pep and a few of the other top managers disagree with you on that one.
