Why Liverpool are wrong about offloading Kamil Grabara?
Liverpool have been dealt with a major blow as Alisson Becker, their primary choice goalkeeper, got injured in the first game of Premier League against Norwich City. As a result, the Brazilain keeper is expected to miss a handful number of games, including the Super Cup final against Chelsea.
In the ex-Roma man’s stead, former West Ham United keeper Adrian will be taking the stand as he did against the Canaries the other night.
It is now that the Reds are missing the services of the young goalkeeper Kamil Grabara, who was recently lent to Championship club Huddersfield Town.
Grabara, 20, made his switch to Anfield in 2016 and mainly featured for the reserves and U18 side until the start of the season.
The Polish shot-stopper emerged as one of the hottest prospects of the youth set-up, as he nearly kept around 16 clean sheets combined for the U19 and U23 sides. His loan spell with Danish club Aarhus GF turned out to be successful, as he kept 6 clean sheets in 16 games, conceding only 18 goals.
Even, he was off to quite an impressive start with Huddersfield, managing to pull a draw against QPR last week.
The Merseyside club didn’t have any problems with goalkeeping options last term as Alisson was unstoppable throughout the campaign, helping them achieve the UCL trophy. The 26-year-old’s fairy tale run extended to the Copa America as Brazil eventually lifted the title.

Yet, his injury has now left the German manager high and dry due to the lack of goalkeeper options on the bench.
Without a tinge of doubt, Grabara would have been a great option for the Reds – only if they had retained his services.
Given that Grabara is still bound to the Anfield outfit, his presence is the need of the hour as there can’t be a better option to provide cover for the injured Alisson.
