Owen Beck has impressed on loan at Dundee FC in the Scottish Premiership. In October, he was able to make his first appearance with the Welsh national team, and recently Dundee manager Tony Docherty was asked if he feared the left-back would return to Liverpool in January. As you know, the Reds need coverage at center after Andy Robertson’s injury, the extent of which we still don’t know.
Docherty humorously answered questions about what he would do if a phone call came from Jurgen Klopp with a desire to bring the 21-year-old back in January.
– I wouldn’t like that. He’s done a good job for us, so I don’t want to take that phone call, Docherty says, adding:
We have a very good relationship with Liverpool, and we were interested in both clubs benefiting from this agreement. “We must maintain the good relationship,” he adds, according to the Liverpool Echo.
Beck has made two League Cup appearances for Liverpool in 2021, but otherwise does not have much experience. It is only this autumn that he has had a taste of regular first-team football, and has delivered the goods in the Scottish Premiership.
– Owen is performing great, and he is also recognized by the national team, so it is not surprising that he is being talked about. But it doesn’t take off as a result. Docherty says he’s very popular here and seems to be having a good time with his teammates.
Many of them can be brought home
It remains to be seen whether Beck will be called back to Merseyside due to good displays, but things may suggest that in any case someone will return home to Liverpool after just half a season on loan.
Many of the other 16 loan players are struggling to play, and at the weekend, only five of them were allowed to play 90 minutes for their team.
This is Anfield stadium He writes that Fabio Carvalho (RB Leipzig), James Balagizzi (Wigan), Billy Koumetio (Dunkirk) and James Norris (Tranmere) are among the players who could be brought back due to lack of playing time. Carvalho has started just one league match for Leipzig this season, and in October he played just 13 minutes.
These are Liverpool’s loan players this season:
