Ian Wright: I’m not sure about this Liverpool FC player
Ian Wright explains why he's not been convinced by Ragnar Klavan at Liverpool FC
Ian Wright has admitted that he is yet to be convinced by Liverpool defender Ragnar Klavan at Anfield.
The 31-year-old has made three Premier League starts for Jurgen Klopp’s men so far this season in what has been a mixed campaign for the Merseyside outfit so far.
Klavan has also made two appearances in the cup competitions for the Reds, who have been widely criticised for their shaky performances as the back this season.
Liverpool are currently seventh in the table and have conceded 12 goals in the top flight so far this season, more than any team above them in the Premier League.
And Arsenal legend Wright admits that he is yet to be convinced by Estonia defender Klavan.
Speaking to BBC Radio 5 live, Wright said: “The defensive errors have been continuing. Why hasn’t he [Klopp] addressed the defensive problems?
“Matip is OK but Klavan I’m not sure about.”
Liverpool return to Premier League action after the international break with a crunch clash against Manchester United at Anfield on Saturday.
They are aiming to get back to winning ways after the disappointment of their 1-1 draw with Newcastle United at St James’ Park last weekend.
The Reds, who finished fourth last term, are currently in seventh place in the Premier League table and seven points behind leaders Manchester City after seven games of the new campaign.
