Former Liverpool player Jose Enrique has admitted that he’s worried about FSG’s lack of investment.
As expected, Liverpool failed to address their glaring midfield issue in the January transfer market. With the deadline passing yesterday, Jurgen Klopp will have to make do with what he has for the rest of the season.
This is a situation that has tested the patience of many a supporter. Now that Enrique has hung up his boots, he is one of those, too. And the Spaniard is a vocal one to boot. Following Liverpool’s no-show in the market yesterday, Enrique took to Twitter to send a series of posts outlining his frustration with FSG.
When one fan replied declaring his own worry over where the owners are currently taking the club, the 38-year-old replied with ‘me too mate.‘

Liverpool fail to use January chance
Although Liverpool’s disinterest in improving their squad this winter isn’t a surprise, it is still an almighty worry.
Had the Reds been sitting top of the table right now, they’d still need a midfielder or two. As it is, they’re toiling in ninth and are out of both domestic cup competitions.
As a result, the decision to do virtually nothing in January is a baffling and somewhat appalling one.
It isn’t as though supporters are asking for a lot. They simply want the wrongs of the last several transfer windows to start to be put right.
Many wouldn’t be comfortable with Chelsea level of spending, they just want to see proactivity in sorting out obvious problems.
If Liverpool could at least try to bring in some level of cover, supporters would forgive the ownership. Say, if they spent a big chunk of money on a player who turned out to be an expensive flop. This would be annoying of course, but at least the will to try something would have been there.
As it is, there looks to be no real care from anyone at the top end of the club. Klopp is doing his best, but things have been falling down around him since the start of the season.
January was a perfect chance, no, the only chance, to rectify mistakes from the summer. That this has now been passed up doesn’t leave much hope for the rest of the season. Things can change of course and we’ve got some brilliant players and an excellent manager. But you can see where Enrique is coming from.
