Jamie Redknapp backs Liverpool FC transfer business
Jamie Redknapp gives his stamp of approval to Liverpool FC's January transfer business this month
Jamie Redknapp has given his stamp of approval to Liverpool FC’s transfer business in the January window.
The Reds have been relatively busy in the mid-season window as they secured the signing of defender Virgil van Dijk from Southampton at the turn of the year.
Van Dijk has already enjoyed a successful start to his Anfield career after he scored the winner on his debut in the 2-1 victory over Everton in the FA Cup earlier this month.
Liverpool FC also managed to rake in a huge transfer fee after finally agreeing to negotiate the sale of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona.
The move went through earlier this month, with Liverpool FC understood to have pocketed around £145m in the big-money deal.
Liverpool FC showcased their attacking flair last weekend when they sealed a thrilling 4-3 victory over Manchester City at Anfield in the Premier League.
And former Liverpool FC midfielder Redknapp seems to have full faith in the way the Reds have gone about their business in the January window.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Redknapp said: “Liverpool’s 4-3 win over Manchester City last weekend was such a big result for the club – for a number of reasons.
“But perhaps most importantly it will have given them the belief that they can still demolish a team as good as City without Philippe Coutinho.
“They’ve still got a fantastic front three there, in Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has revitalised his career since joining them.
“I’ve got no problems with them going forward; they play some great football.
“That’s not to say they’re not going to miss Coutinho. Who wouldn’t? He’s a little genius. But in terms of the business they’ve done this January, I stand by it.”
Liverpool FC will now switch their attentions back towards FA Cup affairs and their fourth-round tie against West Brom at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.
