Jerome Sinclair could be in for an excellent career at Liverpool, according to his former teammate…
Jamie Carragher has claimed that Jerome Sinclair desperately needs a spell out on loan to optimise his incredible potential. The 18-year-old starred in a youth team victory over Chelsea on Monday, but has found first-team opportunities hard to come by.

Liverpool bought Sinclair from West Brom back in 2011, and the striker made his first-team debut the following year, playing in the League Cup tie against his former club – but two years on, that’s still his only appearance for the Reds.
Our 2-0 victory over Chelsea included one brilliant goal from Sinclair, his 22nd of the season, while he also won a penalty, which was converted by Harry Wilson.
Carragher, who was quoted by the Liverpool Echo, referenced other young players who have enjoyed success away from Anfield in recent years – including Sheyi Ojo and Jordon Ibe.
The latter has become an integral part of Brendan Rodgers’ squad since he returned from Derby County earlier this year, turning in several impressive performances before picking up an unfortunate injury.
The former Reds defender said of Sinclair’s latest performance: “It was an outstanding finish, he left the defender for dead and then showed great pace and composure on his weaker foot.
“Another member of this squad, Sheyi Ojo, has gone to Wigan on loan. That’s the next step for Jerome. I think it’s a big ask for Jerome to go straight into the Liverpool first team. There are enough strikers there at the moment.
“He needs to go out on loan, get games under his belt and prove himself in men’s football. Hopefully at the start of next season he will go on the pre-season tour and show Brendan Rodgers what he can do.
“Hopefully he will go on to have a great career and I can tell people I played with Jerome Sinclair. They have specialist coaches at the Academy at all levels. Robbie Fowler, Steve McManaman and Rob Jones go in and pass on words of wisdom and it looks like Jerome has been listening.”
