Jamie Carragher discusses the future of Liverpool defence
Liverpool legend wants Brendan Rodgers to stick with Mamadou Sakho, Dejan Lovren and Martin Skrtel
Jamie Carragher says Mamadou Sakho, Dejan Lovren and Martin Skrtel are the future of the Liverpool defence.
Ivory Coast international Kolo Toure impressed at the Bernabeu as the experienced centre-half helped Liverpool limited Real Madrid to 1-0 win last week.
I still think both signings (Sakho and Lovren) probably haven’t shown their true form
However, former Reds defender Carragher urged Rodgers to stick with his other three centre-halves despite Toure’s eye-catching Champions League performance.
“Kolo Toure came in and had a really good game at Real Madrid,” Carragher is quoted as saying by ECHO.
“He did really well but at his age now you have got to look at the other three for the future and for right now.
“He was unfortunate not to play against Chelsea but in the long-term you have to look at Sakho, Skrtel and Lovren and they have to be fighting it out between themselves.
“Sakho is out injured but is closing in on fitness and if Liverpool keep conceding goals then you have to look at him.
“But I still think both signings (Sakho and Lovren) probably haven’t shown their true form and whatever we think of them at this time, they are better players than they have shown.
“But if Liverpool are still conceding goals then you have to look at Sakho.”
