Gakpo in Liverpool, Koeman does not understand!


Netherlands coach Ronald Koeman has given a very candid opinion on the arrival of Dutch winger Cody Gakpo in Liverpool.

Cody Gakpo, Liverpool

Zero goals in six games

On December 28, Liverpool formalized the recruitment of Cody Gakpo. The Reds broke their piggy bank to secure the services of the attacking midfielder from PSV Eindhoven, the club on the banks of the Mersey having paid 42 million euros to enlist the 23-year-old player, very prominent with the Oranje on the lawns of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Despite this substantial investment, the native of Eindhoven does not manage to earn his place in the workforce trained by Jürgen Klopp. In six games played in all competitions, Liverpool’s number 18 has yet to find the net or deliver a single assist. What makes the new coach of the Netherlands Ronald Koeman say, in a program broadcast on Youtubethat the main interested party did not make a good decision in joining the Anfield-based club.

not be decisive, “very difficult”

“He found himself in a team that is not doing well. Then it gets harder for him, like a new recruit. You are tested straight away, and if you don’t score or you’re not important and you don’t win any matches, it’s very difficult, especially for a young player. If it was someone 28 years old with experience, it would be different. The level in England is higher than in the Netherlands, but they are also young boys, right? Like Gravenberch go to Bayern and not play. So it’s difficult.”

Badly beaten in Wolverhampton last Saturday (0-3), in the Premier League, Liverpool advanced to an insignificant tenth place, 21 points behind leader Arsenal, a rank far removed from its initial ambitions. In the Champions League, Mohamed Salah’s partners will face Real Madrid in the round of 16 on February 21 and March 15.
