Hmm we will see. Doesnt come with a great CV so not sure how much better we can expect to be. 30 year old with a mid tableish club in Germany doesnt scream a top talent.
He's won more titles, cups and international caps then the player who he replaced. Plus he was cheaper, on less wages and a year younger.
There's also the fact that Klopp wanted him, and probably saw him a better option to rotate into the squad compared to Skrtel who would have wanted to be a starter.
When Hyypia joined he was obviously younger but had literally nothing of note on his CV. He turned out alright.
If you don't mind me asking, who exactly would have been a better option or even top talent?
