Jurgen Klopp needs no invitation when it comes to monitoring Liverpool’s youth stars and handing first team opportunities to those he feels are ready.
This season has evidenced just how open he is to giving youngsters a chance to impress alongside senior players but also how protective he is over them.
Numerous starts for the likes of Ben Woodburn, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Ovie Ejaria have sparked excitement surrounding the future of the club yet Klopp has expertly ensured any over-whelming hype has been avoided.
U23s coach Mike Garrity has hailed the German for his role in the progress of his team’s key players.
“Our manager gives these boys opportunities, he gives them hope and he’s never afraid to throw a young player in, like we saw with Trent Alexander-Arnold at Old Trafford,” he told Liverpoolfc.com.
“For any young player here, if they are performing well and he’s making the right noises then I think the manager casts his eye this way and he’s not afraid to take them up to Melwood, so for any young players what that gives them is optimism.”
This appears to be the brightest group of youth prospects the club has had in years and Klopp is the perfect man to introduce them to the big stage.
The faith he so openly puts in the youngsters promises to work wonders in terms of boosting their confidence and driving them to continue their development.
Liverpool’s future looks bright.
