Rhian Brewster netted twice at Prenton Park as Liverpool began preparations for the new season with a 6-0 win over League One outfit Tranmere Rovers.
The striker has endured a tough spell out with a serious injury and was therefore especially delighted to be out on the pitch and not watching from the stands as he was this time last year.
Brewster spoke after the game about how happy he was to play for the Reds this evening – and he should get another chance to impress on Sunday against Bradford City.
He told LiverpoolFC.com post-match: “This time last year I was out injured. I was here watching the boys play against Tranmere and this year I’m here playing. It’s mad how far you can come in a year.
“I’m loving every minute of pre-season. It’s tough, don’t get me wrong, but I’d rather be out there than on the treatment bench. It’s great to be back out there.”
Brewster is nothing but impressive both on and off the pitch. He speaks as well as he plays and showed a real maturity over on the Wirral.
The youngster added: “I think the team played really well in both halves.”
