That is the opinion of former Premier League striker and Liverpool fan Micky Quinn.
Southampton defender Van Dijk used to be connected with a transfer to Anfield all the way through the summer season.
Saints refused to promote the Dutchman, even if he passed in an reputable switch request.
Quinn is offended Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp didn’t signal a defender in the summer season and has labelled the German and the membership “arrogant” for the failed Van Dijk deal.
“He hasn’t addressed that defensive side in two years since he’s been there,” Quinn mentioned on talKSPORT.
“I feel the soccer has progressed no finish, they’re a pleasure to observe and so they’re fringe of the seat to observe on account of the shambles after they’re putting in for set items looking to shield.
“To now not cope with a defender in the remaining switch window is bordering on negligence.
“If you’re a Liverpool fan you’re on the fringe of your seat looking to shield, you’ve were given to attain 4 objectives or 5 objectives to win a soccer fit.
“Going again to that switch window, to simply mainly suppose ‘we are going to get Van Dijk’ proper the approach via, proper the technique to the twine used to be once more a little bit little bit of vanity.
“Not simply from Klopp, from Liverpool Football Club.
“Then to promote (Mamadou) Sakho for £26million who had an ideal season with (Crystal) Palace, conserving them up subsequent 12 months, it is only a defensive shambles.
“He hasn’t addressed it, whether or not they get Van Dijk subsequent January, (Naby) Keita’s coming subsequent 12 months.
“I fancied a name problem in the event that they were given Van Dijk this season, for me that’s out the window the name problem.”
