Liverpool Will Not Let This Midfielder Leave In January: The Right Call By Klopp?

According to the club’s official website, Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that he will not allow Rafael Camacho to leave the club during this January transfer window. In the pre-match press conference mentioned in the club’s website, Klopp shed some light on Camacho’s future and said, “Rafa will not leave,”

The Portuguese youngster made his debut for the Merseyside outfit last Monday when the Reds suffered a surprise 2-1 defeat at the hands of Wolverhampton Wanderers. Despite the loss, Camacho looked like a player with a lot of potential when he was on the ball and also made some decisive interceptions in his own half as well. He was played out of position at right-back, but the youngster managed to cope with the challenge and put in a matured display during that game.

Now that Klopp has only got the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League to concentrate on, it is difficult to see how he will incorporate a raw talent like Camacho in his first-team.

A loan switch away from Anfield would have been the best solution for all parties as it would have handed the Portuguese talent with some valuable experience on the pitch which would have helped him develop as a player.

Camacho has been in a rich vein of form for the Liverpool Under-23 side as he has often used his pace and quickness to cause a lot of problems for the opposition defenders. He is also a pretty good dribbler with the ball which is why he wants to play in the number 10 position where he gets the freedom to express himself.

Not letting the Portuguese starlet leave this month indicates that the Reds will have enough cover in midfield which will give them an edge in the Premier League title race. However, Camacho still has a long way to go before he is ready to feature for the Reds on a regular basis.

The Lisbon born prospect has all the makings of a great, modern-day midfielder and so now it will be up to him to develop his game and be ready for the challenges that lie ahead. However, for Liverpool, it might prove to be a shrewd move by Klopp to retain his services for the time being as they look to push on in search of their first league title in 29 years.
