Liverpool slammed over Clyne loan exit
The Reds have been struggling with injuries in defence in recent weeks, with Trent Alexander-Arnold's latest set-back leaving them particularly short at right-back.
And Sherwood believes manager Jurgen Klopp made an error in not keeping Clyne in the squad, with Liverpool unable to recall him from Bournemouth.
"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," he told Sky Sports.
"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 - but to let Nathaniel Clyne go to Bournemouth is incredible to me. I think it is a massive error of judgement by Liverpool."

Bartomeu, however, insists no such correspondence has taken place and made it clear that PSG would not want to sell their star man.
"I have never spoken to them, nor have the father or player called me to return to Barca. They have not called," Bartomeu said.
"We are preparing for next season and the name of Neymar is not on the table.
"We are talking about a PSG player and I do not think that PSG want to get rid of a player like him."

"Feeling secure is something I have felt since the first day I arrived here," said Silva.
"It's normal [meeting Moshiri face to face]. When we have the possibility to meet, we do; when not, we speak on the phone.
