Shouldn't have sold him in the first place, but bringing him back will just be a waste of time and money. Since the team is in the process of rebuilding, they shouldn't make any more stop-gap signings(short-term fix). What LFC needs is young and long-term prospects like Fabio Coentrao. No more buying 29/30+ year olds who're on the decline.

I think that depends on the price. He is more than good enough, he loves Liverpool and was really sad when he had to leave. Considered he is never injured, I think he can have many good years left as a footballer in top international level.

Would be good as a free transfer. Cant remember how much is left on his contract though

Agree with you. Shouldnt panic buy. Bring through from the youth team

We are encouraging more youth players, 3-4 players in the playing eleven to boost their confidence.

I think too that he had never left but coming back would not be a great idea both for him and the club.

Great player for Liverpool and the league. Shouldnt have left

He was kinda not performing well, so.. had to let go!

I don't feel he'll agree on coming back, he's having a good season with Roma.
