Rhian Brewster has already made a significant impact at youth level for both Liverpool and England – but this year might be his time to shine on the first team stage.
With clinical goalscoring instincts and a rounded game even at the age of 19, he’s well on the right path to making it right at the very top.
Combine that with an excellent attitude and a desire to improve, and it’s an impressive mixture. Jurgen Klopp has certainly been impressed, and Brewster just wants to repay the faith.
Speaking to LiverpoolFC.com, Brewster explained: “He has said it quite a few times now [that the striker will make a big impact this coming season] and I just want to repay his faith in me. It is alright him saying it, but it is for me to go out there and do it. I’m looking forward to doing that.
“Of course it’s sad that Daniel [Sturridge] has gone, but it’s a gap for me and hopefully I can fill his big boots. He’s not a bad player! Hopefully I can push on this season.”
Sometimes players can find it difficult to live up to big reputations when they come through the system. Brewster still has a lot to learn but he seems to be going about it the right way so far.
