Reds teenage sensation Ben Woodburn has been on the receiving end of high praise from his U23s captain Harry Wilson.
Wilson has admired the way in which Woodburn has made the step up in age group and the impact he is having as one of the less experienced members of the U23s team.
He told the Liverpool Echo: “Stepping up to the U21s or the U23s as it is now is a big step.”
“When I did it there were senior players who helped me. they’ve moved on now to Melwood or to different clubs, but I think it’s important for the older ones to help the younger ones like Ben (Woodburn).”
“But I think he’s made the step up really well and has taken to it like a duck to water really. He’s scoring, he’s assisting, he’s helping the team. If he continues how he is he’ll do well.”
Woodburn recently celebrated his 17th birthday by signing a three year professional contract at Liverpool with many regarding him as one of the brightest prospects to come out of the Kirkby Academy.
The youngster has been on the radar of Liverpool fans since impressing for the first team during the pre-season, with goals against Fleetwood Town and Wigan.
He has also been in sparkling form for the U23s so far this season, leading many to believe that he could feature under Jurgen Klopp earlier than expected.
Wilson’s teammate has caught the eye with his composure and technical ability when the ball is at his feet and is being tipped as a Liverpool star of the future.
Let’s hope Woodburn can continue his rise to fame.
