Kevin Stewart proves admirable self-belief as he defies talks of a departure

Posted by

Kevin Stewart has gone someway towards diminishing suggestions that he is destined for an Anfield exit by reaffirming his desire to play a part for Liverpool next season.

The midfielder has, as of yet, failed to emerge as a first team regular and made only nine appearances last season.

That said, he is approaching the summer with the matching self-belief and ambition that has, for so long now, seen him fight to prove himself as a useful option for his manager.

“Trying to break through, trying to stay fit and trying to be ready for when I’m called upon [is my aim],” he told

“Next season there are going to be a lot of games, especially if we qualify for the Champions League, so I just want to keep fit in the summer, work hard and then see where the season takes us.”

“That’s the thing that keeps me going – I’ve done it before, so I know it’s possible”

“I see the players I train with and they’re amazing players I’m competing with and playing with, but I will keep believing because I’ve been through it before.”

Stewart’s undying determination to make a name for himself at Liverpool is something to be admired, especially given the current fierce competition for a midfield place- likely to be increased by potential new signings.

Notable loan and permanent offers from elsewhere are unlikely to disappear in the space of a season which is why there is perhaps nothing wrong with the 23-year-old continuing to fight for a place.

The experience he has gained and will continue to gain at Liverpool will set him in good stead regardless of what the future holds for him.
