Shamal George was labelled ‘The new Robbie Fowler’ and photoshopped lifting 2016’s Balon d’Or award following his 30 minute cameo outfield v Huddersfield last night!
The Under-18 goalkeeper came on outfield for the injured Lucas in the second-half, much to the delight of the crowd, and didn’t look entirely lost!
At one point it looked like George was through on goal, only for the humourless linesman to raise his flag.
Other than that, some bumbled touches and some rangy pressing signified his performance.
Klopp has a penchant for picking odd players up front; he did the same with Steven Caulker two times at the beginning of the calendar year! Barring something very extreme though, we can’t see George as a striker again!
