Carragher admits one transfer decision from Liverpool has ‘surprised’ him

Jamie Carragher has had something to say regarding the club’s decision to let right-back Nathaniel Clyne move out on loan to Bournemouth this month.

The 27-year-old had seen very minimal action for the Reds as he is still struggling with fitness after recovering from a back injury which saw him sidelined for around 257 days.

The club decided that it would be wise to let Clyne leave on loan for the remainder of the season as he was not able to get enough game time at Anfield.

However, with injuries suddenly piling up for the Reds, it does not appear to have been so much of a wise move to allow the defender to leave temporarily.

In fact, former Liverpool skipper Carragher has rued the decision from the club to an extent after admitting that he was ‘surprised’ by it.

“He will bring consistency (to Bournemouth),” the ex-Liverpool star said

“I was surprised Liverpool let him go, I must say that. I know he hasn’t been involved for a long time, but Liverpool have got young players there.

“He played that one game against Manchester United and he was outstanding, considering how long he’d been out (injured).”

Clyne still has a chance to prove his worth to Klopp though, if he can get fully fit and back to his top form.
