Ben Davies will never play for Liverpool after failing to make an appearance since his January move to the club.
That’s according to former Tottenham and Leeds goalkeeper Paul Robinson, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about Davies’ future.
Davies, 25, signed for Liverpool from Preston on the final day of the January transfer window in a bid to help solve the club’s defensive injury crisis with Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip all out injured.
The defender is yet to make his debut but has been named on the bench throughout the Champions League knockout stages and for some Premier League games.
Even injuries to stand-in centre back pair Fabinho and Jordan Henderson didn’t give Davies a chance as fellow January recruit Ozan Kabak was picked instead.
Robinson insists Liverpool failed to solve their defensive problems despite having all of January to do so and claims Davies will never play for the club.
“They had the January window to sort their problems out,” Robinson told Football Insider.
“They left it until the last minute and they didn’t get anywhere near to solving that problem with the players they brought in.
“I don’t think he’ll [Davies] ever play for the club.”
Davies had been a regular starter in the Championship for Preston in the first half of the season but has now not played competitive football since January 30.
Liverpool continue to struggle through their injury crisis as they face the prospect of missing out on Champions League football after their 1-1 draw with Newcastle United at the weekend.
