Liverpool recall three players from loan spells amidst major injury crisis

first_img1 Tiago Ilori Ryan Kent, Sheyi Ojo and Tiago Llori have all been recalled from loan spells to ease Liverpool’s injury crisis.Jurgen Klopp moved to bring back the trio after Philippe Coutinho, Dejan Lovren and Kolo Toure became the Reds’ latest casualties.Winger Kent arrives back from League One Coventry, forward Sheyi Ojo returns from Wolves, while centre-back Tiago Ilori has been summoned from Aston Villa.Ilori could go straight into the side to face Exeter in the FA Cup on Friday despite failing to make a single appearance during his Villa loan spell.He is the only fit senior centre-back in Klopp’s squad, with Lovren, Martin Skrtel, Toure and Mamadou Sakho all currently sidelined.“We have thought the last few days about what we can do in our situation and the first thing is we take back our own players,” Klopp said.“That is a normal thing, even if they have not the perfect situation at the clubs where they are on loan like it was with Ojo and Kent or Tiago.“These are our players and we have a situation. In my opinion, the best skill and the biggest talents should be in your own club so they can play together at under-21 and develop as a team.“If they make big steps then pick them so you always have them around you. Now we take them back and it is a big chance for the boys but there is no pressure because they are so young.“If they do well they can make the next step quickly but if not they have time – that is the good thing when you are young.“We want to work with them and we will see what happens. I am not too sure at this moment [whether any more will be brought back] but it is possible.“An offensive winger and centre-half is (key) for us at the moment.”Tune into talkSPORT on Friday for live and exclusive national radio coverage of Exeter v Liverpool, kick-off 19.55last_img read more
