Leeds' Kalvin Phillips 'not the man to replace Wijnaldum'


Phillips is being tipped as a possible replacement for Gini Wijnaldum who left Anfield this summer

Leeds United's Kalvin Phillips is not the man to replace Gini Wijnaldum at Anfield as he is more a Fabinho type player - t
he verdict of Liverpool legend Steve Nicol after the England international was linked with a move to the Reds.

Nicol told ESPN FC about the midfielder amid Liverpool links: "No [Phillips would not be a good replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum] I think Phillips, if he is going to replace anybody [in the Liverpool team] Phillips would replace Fabinho.

"Phillips did well [against Croatia], he broke forward, he did play a great pass to Sterling but that’s not his game, that’s not how he plays with Leeds, that’s not what he’s used to doing."

"So that wouldn't be his job if he was to replace anybody in the Liverpool midfield."
