Tiago Ilori says he hopes he has done enough for Klopp to give him a regular berth in the first team in the coming weeks.
According to the Echo, Ilori thinks he deserves a chance after acquitting himself well in his FA Cup appearances this year.
“I’ve had a few chances to play which is great,” he said.
“I always thought there could be a future here. That’s why I signed for Liverpool in the first place. I just try and work hard every day.
“Players get experience by playing. I played alongside Lucas and he didn’t look at me and think: ‘he’s not as experienced’ and I didn’t look at him and think: ‘he’s the most experienced player’.
“We all play together, we train together every day and we’re a team.
“There are a lot of good players at Liverpool for me to learn from. I just take it step by step.”
Ilori was only recalled from an unsuccessful loan spell at Villa in mid-January, eventually getting his first senior game more than two and a half years after he signed for us.
With Skrtel suffering from injury, Lovren out again, and Toure and Sakho struggling for form, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him get regular minutes in the coming months.
