Former Liverpool man Mark Lawrenson has thrown a recommendation that Conor Coady would be an best substitute for the injured Virgil van Dijk.
Coady got here via the Reds academy however left earlier than making a 1st team appearance. However, with his inventory soaring, Lawrenson is one of many who feels the club have to seem to be to deliver him back.
“I would think Virgil will be out for the season,” Lawrenson told the Argus. “I think it’s a write-off because you’ve got to get match fit and that’s almost impossible nowadays because they don’t play reserve team football.
“If Liverpool are going to pay big money for somebody in January, they want absolutely ready-made. Conor Coady has had loads of shouts and he is a very good organiser who has played lots of games in the Premier League.”
