Rhian Brewster has been incredibly vocal in his praise for Jurgen Klopp as well as his senior teammates at Liverpool as he explains how he has been made to feel important in his road to recovery.

The young striker is on the comeback from serious knee and ankle injuries which needed surgery but his return date is drawing ever nearer as he steps up his rehabilitation with a first-team spot his goal.

Last week, Brewster stepped up his recovery as he began running at Melwood and is tipped for a return to fitness in December and ahead of his potential return, the youngster has expressed his gratitude to his teammates and manager.

The 18-year-old says that Jurgen Klopp, in particular, has been excellent to him as he has been sidelined and how his support makes him all the more motivated to blow the world away when he fit.

Brewster said: “The manager makes a few jokes about me not having been on the pitch for so long!. But it’s good to have a manager like that managing me because it does keep me happy.

“It would be easier for him to ignore me and think, ‘I’ll wait until Rhian gets fit’, and not really interact with me, but he has. He’s kept my morale high and I can’t thank him enough – well, I could if I score some goals for him!

“Seriously, I can’t thank the manager enough and also every single one of the players. They all talk to me every day, ask me how I am, when I’ll be back fit and stuff like that. It means a lot.

“I just can’t wait to be back and hopefully help the team go far in the Premier League and Champions League.”
