Liverpool got fully underway with pre-season yesterday, securing two stalemates in the first round of summer practice fixtures against Wacker Innsbruck and Stuttgart.
One man that seemed to catch the eye amongst the fanbase was teenager Kaide Gordon who featured in the first clash against Daniel Bierofka’s men.
The scoreline ended at 1-1, with Divock Origi converting a penalty following a handball in the opposition box.
The young Englishman, once described as the best 16-year-old in the country, proved to be something of a nuisance throughout the tie, coming close to making his mark on the stat sheet on a number of occasions.
Coming so highly-rated, we at the Empire of the Kop imagine Gordon will be a player Jurgen Klopp and the coaching team at Liverpool will be keeping a very close eye on this coming season.
Judging from history, there’s a very real possibility that the likes of the former Derby wonderkid – not to mention a handful of promising starlets, including Mateusz Musialowski – will be given minutes in the cup competitions.
As such, we doubt pre-season will be the last we see of the teenage forward.

Gave a good account of yourself. Didn’t look out of place alongside the first team names. Keep up the hard work and I’m sure we will see a lot more of you.
