‘Tonight was mad!’ said Shamal George after being asked by Jurgen Klopp to play up top against Huddersfield on Wednesday evening…
The giant youth goalkeeper replaced the injured Lucas in the second-half, with Klopp having no other options left on his bench. The teenager played up top, but didn’t manage to score – sadly – as it would have sent the fanbase into even further meltdown!

George shared a photo on his Instagram of him receiving a famous Klopp hug upon completion of his cameo outfield performance, and is now heading on the tour of America with the first-team – as the third choice goalkeeper behind Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet.
Let’s hope the next time we seem him outfield it’s between the sticks!
