Liverpool’s Cody Gakpo (23) has not yet been able to start a scoring gun.
Liverpool signed a contract with Gakpo in December last year. His contract is until 2028, and the transfer fee was £44 million (approximately 67.2 billion won). Liverpool chose each gun as a resource that can add great strength to the attacking line.
However, Gakpo, wearing a Liverpool uniform, has yet to score. He played three matches each in the Premier League and FA Cup, but had no offensive 토토사이트points. He was left with regret because they were all starts.
What’s more noticeable than the scoreless of the gakpo is the recent sluggishness of Liverpool. In the last seven games, they have only won one, including league and cup competitions. A 1-0 win over Wolverhampton in the FA Cup was all. No score was scored. Only 5 goals in 7 matches. In a situation where they are suffering from a scoring drought, there are no goals from Gakpo.
According to the British media’Daily Mail’ on the 8th (Korean time), the new coach of the Dutch national team, Ronald Koeman, mentioned the current situation of the gakpo on the YouTube channel of former Dutch player Andi van der Meider.
He said, “You can tell that Gakpo belongs to a team that is not good at it. It’s a difficult situation for new contractors. You will be put to the test right away.”
“If you don’t score or you don’t win, the situation becomes difficult, especially for a young player,” he added.
Gakpo, who has been playing in the first team since 2018 after passing through the Eindhoven youth team, is a striker who stood out by being responsible for three of the Netherlands’ five goals in the Qatar World Cup group stage. In particular, he scored in all three group stage matches, marking the first time in Dutch football history.
Gakpo scored 9 goals and 12 assists in 14 matches in the Netherlands Eredivisie this season, and also played an active role in the UEFA Europa League with 3 goals and 2 assists.
It is said that Manchester United has shown particular interest in him, as the possibility of transferring to a ‘big club’ has been continuously raised due to his performance in his team and national team. However, the winner before signing was Liverpool.
However, each gun is not performing as well as expected. Along with Liverpool’s sluggishness, the score of each point has not yet exploded.
