Every former notable bets over his side and always asks youngsters to do lots of hard work to parallel the legacy his side has been carrying for decades. Liverpool is one such side who is of course amongst the top four English sides hence almost every player wants to get associated with them and 24-year-old Nathaniel Clyne is one such player who needs to change his playing style to match the need of his side, this is what is believed by the former Reds skipper Steve McMahon. This is not a secret now that Anfield side paid a huge price for doing some mistakes last year that includes releasing Suarez and since then they are struggling to control the forward line in the field and 53-year-old just expects Clyne to do the hard work for his new side. He as well taunted over Clyne former side Southampton when said St Mary side is nowhere at par with that of Anfield side hence he needs to get out of his past and play for the future. Calling him a young and promising player, McMahon said, “Clyne is a good, young English player with a bright future, but he will find out quickly that Liverpool is a very different kind of club to Southampton. It’s like a goldfish bowl at Liverpool while at Southampton you can a couple of iffy games and nobody pays that much attention.
“(He) will be expected to contribute a lot in an attacking sense while taking care of his defensive job. He will need find his form quickly because Liverpool must start next season well.”
He advises Clyne to help Liverpool improve its attack and play more aggressive soccer which was the weakest point for the side in the last season. Actually, fans are well aware of biggest shortcomings Liverpool has had in the last season when they tried to recoup Uruguayan loss with a battery of new players but nothing could work and they had to rest at number eight on the leaderboard. If we look at new Liverpool squad, it would be having services of four former Southampton players, i.e., Clyne, Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren, and Rickie Lambert which is surprising for the television pundit. Adding about the internal system of the club that is continuously failing to produce young players, former club pro said, “I think it’s strange that so many Southampton players have joined Liverpool in the last year or so. Why can’t Liverpool own scouting system find these kind of players?”
