Jordon Ibe managed to get a snap with popstar royalty after the Liverpool forward bumped into One Directions star Niall Horan.

The England Under-21 international has been one of the sole positives to come from Liverpool’s otherwise disappointing season.

Despite emerging as one of the Premier League’s brightest prospects, Ibe appeared slightly star struck after meeting Horan.

Ibe posted the above on Instagram and wrote the following caption: “Good to bump into @niallhoran”

The Liverpool winger made his comeback from injury last month as the 19-year-old helped the Reds to seal a 2-0 win against Newcastle United.

Ibe has subsequently made a further three Premier League appearances, although Brendan Rodgers’ side won just one of those games.

The Reds teenager is yet to score nine top-flight games for the 18-time English champions this season.

Ibe was recalled to the Liverpool squad after he scored five goals in 20 Championship games during his loan spell at Derby County.
