Harry Wilson has paid tribute to Jurgen Klopp’s man-management expertise after leaving the club on loan in search of regular senior football.
The Welshman joined Hull City on deadline day in a deal that will see him ply his trade at the Championship club until the end of the season.
Wilson makes his natural transition to a more competitive environment having been unlucky not to earn more opportunities under Klopp on Merseyside.
His first and only appearance for the Reds’ senior team came against Plymouth Argyle in an FA Cup tie in January 2016.
He has since seen the likes of Ben Woodburn and Trent Alexander-Arnold make their breakthroughs, with the latter having shared the workload with Joe Gomez in the absence of right-back Nathaniel Clyne this season.
Despite his tough mission to impress at Anfield, Wilson has praised Klopp for the encouraging environment he has created at the club and his relationship with every player.
“In terms of the manager at Liverpool, he is a great man-manager and he always has time for his players. He respects every player in the same way. I had a few chats with him and I was happy to come to Hull,” Wilson told Hull City’s official club website.
“I’m also hoping that this move will help me to get into the new Wales manager’s thoughts. I’m with the U21s at the minute, but I’ve been involved with the first team a few times and I want more of that.
“So there’s two new managers that I have to impress as well as Liverpool and I’m looking forward to giving my best to do that.”
Hull have a serious talent on their hands in Wilson, who has scored 10 goals in 12 appearances for Neil Critchley’s U23s so far this season.
The Welshman has emerged as one of the most prolific forwards in the Premier League 2, taking his game to a class above that of many of his opponents.
His consistency has made it impossible for Klopp to ignore his talent, not to mention earning him a deserved new long-term contract prior to his departure.
Wilson’s move marks a vital stage of his career as he strives to prove he is worthy of vying for a place in Klopp’s immediate plans.
