The youngster asked several members of the squad to name who the first player they ever had on the back of their shirts was and they said:

Joe Gomez: “It was Thierry Henry, you know”.

Jurgen Klopp: “Karlheinz Förster, you don’t know him. German international, No.4, centre-half, really hard player. I got his original shirt as a present”.

Cody Gakpo: “I think I got one time, as a present from my father, the shirt of [Diego] Maradona”.

Kostas Tsimikas: “As I remember, when I was a kid I liked Ronaldinho”.

Harvey Elliott: “[Fernando] Torres, at the time he was my Dad’s favourite player”.

Curtis Jones: “I think it was Steven Gerrard you know. He was the prime example, my idol”.

It’s a great watch and lovely to see how the players interacted with the academy player.
