Pundit and ex-player not impressed with players
Jamie Carragher has blasted his former-club Liverpool and has insisted that there isn’t enough quality in the team to make them serious title contenders.
The Reds came very close to securing their first piece of silverware of the season in yesterday’s Capital One Cup final, but they fell short to Manchester City on penalties after drawing the game 1-1.
With Liverpool already out of the FA Cup and not legit title contenders this season, any hope of silverware this season lies with the Europa League.
However, they face fierce-rivals Manchester United in the next round, and Carragher believes that will be a hard task to overcome.
Carragher Attacks Liverpool
“A lot was riding on today as it’s been a poor season,” he added. “Not just for the club, but for the manager [Jurgen Klopp] if he’s to be successful then they’ve got to win trophies and this was his first shot at it.
“However, he’s aware there’s problems in this squad. There’s not enough quality, they’re not good enough.
“Where they are in terms of the other teams and what they can win in terms of trophies, this is it. They’re not good enough to win the Premier League or the Europa League. They have Manchester United next in that tournament so it will be like a Cup final.”
