Liverpool boss Klopp mocks Carragher over transfer criticism

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has mocked club legend Jamie Carragher over criticism of his summer buying.

Carragher says Liverpool are now short of defensive options after the injury suffered by Virgil van Dijk.

"We went into the season with three centre backs plus Fabinho as cover and some youngsters," Klopp said.

"It's hard to have four world-class centre halves.

"If anyone wants to tell us we made a mistake - I think Carragher mentioned already - there are a few reasons why they don't do this job."

Carragher however then defended the comments, posting to social media: "Not once this season have I said it was a mistake for Klopp not to buy a centre back for the exact reason he states."
