The right-back joined Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth team and Tim Sherwood thinks it could prove a catastrophic decision.
Regular right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold has been out of action since January 12 when he injured his knee against Brighton.
Klopp has been forced to deploy James Milner on the right side of his defence in the recent 1-1 draws with Leicester and West Ham.
The veteran struggled in particular against the Foxes, his lack of pace was exposed by Demarai Gray and the overlapping Ben Chillwell.
Sherwood thinks had Clyne been available, he would have been a far more preferable option and potentially could have made a crucial difference to the result.
Speaking on The Debate, the former Spurs manager was incredulous at Klopp’s decision to send him out on loan.
He said: “They’ve picked up some injuries, Losing Joe Gomez to injury is a big blow for them.
“I thought he was outstanding and it looks like there’s been a mistake with his injury, they seem to have left it a month or so and they’ve said he’s got to have an operation. That is poor.
To let Clyne go to Bournemouth is amazing for me. Why would you get rid of someone you may need. Trent Alexander-Arnold is injured as well so in the right-back area you really are struggling.
“You’ve got Milner who is going to play in there and do his best, is an outstanding professional and is capable”.
