We’ve already got Ben Woodburn, Ovie Ejaria and Trent Alexander-Arnold breaking through, but in Rhian Brewster, it appears Liverpool might have another very exciting youngster to keep tabs on.
The teenager was born in 2000 and only turned 17 earlier this month, but he was given his Under-23 debut a few days ago by Michael Garrity.
Against Ipswich Town, Brewster started in attack, scored a goal and put in a very impressive performance. His ability to lay the ball off to onrushing attackers was especially noticeable, as was his powerful first-time shooting.
“Rhian is a prospect. He has bags of potential and is a good kid,” Garrity told the ECHO.
“I just thought it was the ideal opportunity to throw him in and see what he’s about. We’re delighted that he got his goal. He’s got a real eye for goal.
“He did very well. He’s got a lovely personality and is a great character. He’s a wise old owl (for his age). It’s about getting him working in the right way.
“He’s not trained with us at all but maybe moving forward the plan will be to nudge him towards our training group. He’s still only a first year scholar so we need to take it slowly with him.
“We can’t get too excited. He has to keep his feet on the floor and keep working hard every day. If he does that I’m sure more opportunities will come his way in the future.”
We shouldn’t get ahead of ourselves as Brewster is so young, but it’s good to see the conveyor belt of talent from Kirkby keeps on rolling!
