Players Liverpool ACTUALLY Need – Part 2: Left Backs

By on June 19, 2011

Here is the second part of the ‘Players Liverpool ACTUALLY Need’ series. In the first part, we discussed about the ‘ideal’ centre backs for Liverpool, click here to read that post.

So here are the ‘ideal’ left backs Liverpool could consider this summer:

1. Marcelo Vieira

Real Madrid’s most promising left back at the moment. Marcelo, aged 23, is known for his lightning speed and durability.

Despite not being the best of tacklers, the Brazilian has performed well against Barcelona’s unprecedented Lionel Messi on several occasions during the El Clasico matches. Marcelo has got 3 goals and 5 assists from a total of 32 appearances for Real Madrid in the Spanish La Liga last season – a stat that is not bad at all for a defender.

2. Domenico Criscito

Some may think I must be joking. Or worse, some might have not even heard of this lad before.

Criscito starred in the 2010 FIFA World Cup for Italy after numerous eye-catching performances for Genoa (now at Napoli) in the Italian Serie A. The 24-year-old has managed 3 assists from a total of 36 Serie A matches last season. His solid displays in Italy has now put him on German powerhouse Bayern Munich’s transfer radar.

3. Miguel Veloso

Mainly operates as an offensive left back but can also play in central midfield, the Portuguese international is excellent in breaking the opposition’s possession and also making well-timed tackles, the exact kind of player Liverpool need.

Premiership sides Manchester City, Bolton and Tottenham Hotspur have all been monitoring the 24-year-old’s situation, and with Veloso only making 19 appearances last season, the Genoa man could well be on his way to a top club soon.

So that’s all for this episode, the post on the ‘ideal’ wingers Liverpool ACTUALLY need will be up soon, thanks for reading guys.

    Domenico Criscito is a good choice. Italy has the heritage of producing top class left backs. Though I think LFC management ‘ll go for some mediocre Brit, for an inflated price.
