Sheyi Ojo is hopeful of forcing his way in Jurgen Klopp’s plans ahead of the new season.
Klopp’s official stance is that he’s not decided whether or not to send the youngster out on loan for the season, but Ojo has appeared to suggest he’d rather stay at Anfield and develop under the tutelage of the German.
He scored our only goal of the game in yesterday’s 2-1 loss against Roma and spoke to the media directly after the match.
“It was disappointing to lose the game but there are a lot of positives to take from the game and our time out here,” he said.
“It was very tough, very humid and the pitch wasn’t the best – but that’s not an excuse. We will assess the game and look forward to the next one.”
He then dropped the hint that sounded like he didn’t fancy a loan switch:
“We are all looking forward to the start of the season now.
“It would be nice to play against a team like [Barcelona] but for me I’ve just to keep my head down and keep working hard in training and see what happens.
“The most important thing is the team and everyone got fitter and we are getting stronger and looking forward to the new season.”
