Liverpool have made a huge mistake letting go of this man

Adam Brown

When thinking of regretful transfers, many names can spring to mind of players who have been brought in and been completely terrible, not least some names regarding Liverpool. Those players who you’re unsure about when they first arrive, but you’ll try to get excited anyway by watching as many YouTube compilations as possible.

Liverpool are no exception to this, and the football world have had many laughs in recent times – from bringing in strikers such as Andriy Voronin and Andy Carroll, to being completely ripped off by Ian Holloway, as he presented Charlie Adam as the Scottish Andrea Pirlo, he’s like football’s bloody version of Del-boy Trotter.

But what about outgoing transfers? There will be no regrets by Liverpool fans for getting rid of the parasitical Raheem Sterling, but there is one man who came through the team at the same time as him, who fans may wish they held on to.

Suso always had plenty of quality, and was unlucky to be shipped out at a time when the Liverpool squad didn’t have a great deal of depth. Yep, today’s Liverpool are playing great at the moment – and he probably wouldn’t get into the starting XI, but he’s the type of player that would thrive after some time learning from Jurgen Klopp.


Suso’s recent form is bittersweet for Liverpool fans, it’s nice to see a former player do well (as long as it’s not for a rival) but it seems that Brendan Rodgers was unable to get the best out of him.

Should the Spaniard continue to shine in the Serie A, he may turn out to be one of Liverpool’s biggest transfer regrets in recent times. Barcelona look to be eyeing up Philippe Coutinho, surely they’re not going to break Liverpool hearts again by snatching away their prized asset once more!? Liverpool may need some of Coutinho’s old ‘Cut in and scuff shot wide’ style to return if the Reds are to keep them away in the summer. And, given the Brazilian’s recent knock against Sunderland, Suso could have been the perfect man to step up.

If we can take anything from Jurgen Klopp’s management skills, how he gets the best out of the players is probably the most impressive trait. Although he enjoys a trip to the strip club or two, Adam Lallana has been brilliant under the German, and it’s likely Suso would have followed the same path if he was still at the club.

Much unlike the welcome and relieving sales of the Scotland’s Pirlo, Charlie Adam and Middlesborough’s own Ronaldo, Stewart Downing, The A.C Milan man could certainly be a player that fans wish Brendan Rodgers held on to. Currently though, Liverpool are in no urgent need of goals, but we know how fickle fans can be – one bad run of form = create as many hypothetical scenarios as possible for the result or demand a player is sold.
