“can’t argue” – Robbie Fowler shares what he hears from the Liverpool training ground

Robbie Fowler from Liverpool training ground

Robbie Fowler says he ‘can’t argue’ with the words he’s hearing from the Liverpool training ground these days. He does have some thoughts, though.

Fowler recently sat down to discuss about the Reds with Liverpool Echo. The ex-Merseyside striker labeled himself as ‘optimistic’ when it comes to Liverpool, always believing that things will go well.

The Reds are going through a struggling season. The Merseyside side giants are currently out of the FA Cup and League Cup. They can still win the Champions League but the English giants need to up their game as they are going to face 14 times Champions League winners Real Madrid in the knockout stages.

What Fowler understood from Liverpool players at the training ground

Understanding the current situation the Premier League legend said

“They have struggled a little bit and I think all the talk coming out of the training ground is that the exploits of last season have maybe taken their toll”,

He also said

“I can’t sit here and argue against that.”

The Merseyside giants had a massive effect from the last season. Whether it’s physical or mental, the team looks completely different.

Red’s issues

Liverpool are still trying to fight, of course, as per Fowler. But the real problem is that they don’t seem able to. Another reason why the performance is not up to the mark is LFC’s injury issues.

Key players like Virgil van Dijk, Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota, and Firminho are all injured. While adding to their miseries, Konate was the latest addition to their injury bench. This forced the German to use players in unusual positions. Moreover, this is also the major reason why the Reds lack stability and coordination on the field.

A team also needs fresh players to maintain dynamic and competitiveness inside the team. But unfortunately, the Reds are not able to afford that due to their so-called smart spending culture.

Will the Merseyside giants be able to bounce back or it is just one of those seasons to forget?
