“Offloading without replacements is completely stupid,” “Bring back Origi” – Fans react as Daniel Sturridge leaves on loan

Daniel Sturridge has left to join West Brom on loan for the remainder of the season, leaving fans are baffled by the club’s approach to the January transfer window.

The Reds are firmly in the running for another top four finish in the Premier League, but following on from Philippe Coutinho‘s departure, and now Sturridge’s, there are a lack of options in attack.

Jurgen Klopp confirmed earlier on Monday that there was no realistic likelihood of the Reds replacing Coutinho before the transfer window shut.

And that left supporters in dismay at the prospect of not being left able to compete with a full-strength squad.


Sturridge’s contributions were recalled by plenty…


The decision to offload two big forward options midway through the season was ridiculed…


Some fans were looking for the options within the squad to fill gaps if needed…


Others looked to the market to assess whether a striker could be found…and weren’t optimistic about the chances of it happening soon.
