£12.5m Transfer Mistake Puts PL Title In Doubt



Liverpool legend Gary Gillespie has berated the Reds following the decision to let right-back Nathaniel Clyne join fellow Premier League club Bournemouth earlier this month.

Gillespie spoke about the transfer mistake from manager Jurgen Klopp and the Reds hierarchy while he was on Ian Stone’s Comedy Breakfast on Love Sport Radio.

The former Reds defender believes that the decision could cost Liverpool the Premier League title.

Gary Gillespie played for Liverpool in the dominant era of the 80s.

He spent eight years on Merseyside between 1983 and 1991.

Gillespie scored 14 league goals for Liverpool in 156 appearances during his time with the club.

Nathaniel Clyne signed for Liverpool in 2015 in a £12.5m deal from Southampton and the England international right-back was the first choice in the Reds team until last season when he had a long-term injury.

Young English defender Trent Alexander-Arnold became the first choice while Clyne was battling his way from injury.

His lack of playing time at Liverpool prompted Klopp to let him join the Cherries and that decision has come back to haunt the German.

Alexander-Arnold (injury) and utility player James Milner (suspension) were missing on Wednesday night as Liverpool dropped points in the title race via a 1-1 draw at home to stubborn Leicester City.

Club skipper Jordan Henderson deputized for Liverpool at right-back for the game against the Foxes.
