Why Owen felt sorry for Liverpool’s new signing after game vs Chelsea
Former football star Michael Owen has opened up on his thought on Liverpool’s recruit Cody Gapko after their weekend game vs Chelsea.
According to Owen, even football star Lionel Messi would struggle to make an impact in the current Liverpool team.
Liverpool played a goalless draw with Chelsea at Anfield on Saturday meaning that they have won only 8 of their 19 games this campaign.
Owen stressed that the Reds’ recent struggles made it difficult for their new players, who moved to Anfield from PSV this January to hit the ground running.
“I feel sorry for him actually because he’s coming into a team that are really inconsistent and drained of all the confidence,” Owen, who played for Liverpool, Manchester United, among other top clubs said on Premier League Productions.
However, the Reds boss Jurgen Klopp said he was okay with the outcome of the match against Chelsea, promising his team would build on that.
Liverpool and Chelsea are struggling this season as they are seated at the 8th and 10th in the Premier League table, respectively.
