The Player Harry Redknapp Thinks Liverpool Should Have Signed On Transfer Deadline Day

Harry Redknapp believes Liverpool made a mistake by not signing Manchester United's Sergio Romero as a backup goalkeeper following Adrian's woeful display against Aston Villa. Adrian replaced the injured Alisson and conceded seven goals as Liverpool lost 7-2 to Villa on Sunday.

But the German boss failed to bring anyone in on deadline day with Redknapp suggesting they missed a trick. Speaking on Sky Sports News, he said: "You would have thought he (Romero) might have gone to Liverpool. "Liverpool need a goalkeeper. They need a goalkeeper more than Everton.

But Warnock who took Cardiff from the Championship to the Premier League in 2018, is not convinced it would be a good move for the club. “I am not sure if it’s the right one, if I’m honest – not for Man Utd,” Warnock said on Sky Sports. “I just think it is too up in the air. I don’t think he has been that consistent and I don’t think he is the right type of player. And Warnock was not convinced it would be a good move for the club. “...
