Liverpool fans can't contain their happiness at selling Jordon Ibe

Jurgen Klopp was always going to make his mark at Liverpool this summer, with several comings and goings in the transfer market.

As expected, some of his decisions were more popular than others, but the biggest eyebrow-raiser was definitely how he convinced Bournemouth to spend £15million on Jordon Ibe.

Of course, Ibe is far from the only player to have been sold for a lofty price tag this summer.

This has been one of the craziest windows in living memory, but even so, after Bournemouth broke their club record fee to sign him, there was always going to be a huge amount of pressure on the England under-21 international.

Unfortunately, like the Cherries as a whole, Ibe hasn't exactly had the best start to the new season.

Bournemouth have played two, lost two, after defeats to Manchester United and West Ham and it's no surprise that Liverpool fans have quickly flocked to social media to have their say on their former winger.

Eddie Howe's side succumbed 1-0 to the Hammers in the first ever Premier League game at the London Stadium, and as they struggled to find a way through, Ibe was hauled off by his manager and replaced with Chelsea loanee Nathan Ake.

Ibe did have a chance to silence his doubters, finding himself through on goal with the scores level. Looking certain to score, he then attempted a pass with no aim on it whatsoever that miraculously bounced off a West Ham defender and won a corner.

The 20-year-old has plenty of time to live up to his price tag, but it's safe to say few Liverpool fans will be feeling much regret about the club's decision to sell right now.
