It looks increasingly unlikely that Rafa Camacho will remain at Liverpool long-term.
The teenager’s contract expires in 2020 and he so far has shown no signs of wanting to extend it.
Following his hat-trick for our U23s on Sunday v Leicester, Camacho took to Instagram and posted an angry message about the position he’s so far been considered in for the first-team, right-back.
In fact, Jurgen Klopp gave Camacho his full debut in this role against Wolves in the FA Cup, and brought him off the bench in the Premier League win over Crystal Palace as well.
Camacho said ‘I will prove that they are mistaken,’ which hints at a transfer elsewhere, so he can play his more favoured offensive role.
In fairness, having seen Camacho, he definitely looks like a winger and not a fullback!
Still, it was immature and unprofessional – and we can imagine the club is dealing with the situation behind closed doors.
Here’s how Reds online reacted…
Where do you stand?
Rafa Camacho is young and his comments on social media “demeaning” his coach for playing him RB is probably not the most mature thing from him but he has a point. He has always shown he is a better attacker than defender. Hope we can keep him.

Concerning Rafa Camacho post ..
ITS IN YOUR DNA that whilst your at our club, you play where either the U23 manager or Jurgen wants you to play. You think this post will get you somewhere? pic.twitter.com/mUxwTmwI0q

Interesting post from Rafa Camacho here. Is he trying to send a message to the manager? Or maybe to other clubs sniffing around him? pic.twitter.com/ws1FmuIX2C
