Steve McManaman has warned Bukayo Saka that he would face a “long wait” for regular first team action if he joined Liverpool.

“If there are contract issues and he ever becomes available on a free transfer then that’s a no brainer because you’re taking someone on a free contract who’s young and has a lot of potential.

“If he continues his development at left-back, then he’s not as good as Andy Robertson at the moment.

“If he does join Liverpool then he’s got a long wait and Liverpool already have a couple of young left-backs waiting in the wings who we’ve seen in the FA Cup this year, who would probably be on a par with Bukayo Saka at this moment in time.
