Jurgen Klopp sends message to Liverpool FC starlet ahead of new season
Jurgen Klopp hints that Rhian Brewster will gain more first-team action for Liverpool FC next season
Jurgen Klopp has hinted that Rhian Brewster will gain more first-team playing time with Liverpool FC next season.
The 19-year-old has struggled with serious knee and ankle injuries in recent months and will be hoping to hold down more of a regular spot in the first team under Klopp in the forthcoming campaign.
Liverpool FC will have some serious ambitions for the forthcoming campaign as they look to try and challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title once again.
The Reds have been relatively quiet in the summer transfer window so far and they have so far only secured a deal to sign 17-year-old Sepp van den Berg.
Now, Klopp has indicated that he plans to give the likes of Brewster a regular run in the first team next season as the German coach aims to bring more trophies to Anfield.
Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Klopp said: “I love the boy, he is fantastic player. Why should I play it down?
“Rhian Brewster is a top striker, he is a top talent and I have told him already that he has an important role this year – but how important depends on him.”
Liverpool FC won the Champions League last season after beating Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in the final back in June.
The Reds ended up just a single point behind Manchester City in the Premier League title race and they will be aiming to go one step further this year.
Liverpool FC kick off their Premier League campaign with a home clash against Norwich City on 8 August.
