Liverpool’s Rhian Brewster has been somewhat of an enigma in recent years. All we know is that is meant to be the next best thing, the next best thing since sliced bread in fact. However, a series of injury setbacks have prevented the former Chelsea youth player from making his first team debut as of yet. The English forward has been announced throughout the world already, having bagged the golden boot at the U17 World Cup thanks to back to back hat-tricks in games against Brazil and the USA. The 19 year old is eager to make an impression at Liverpool and spoke to FourFourTwo about trying to get away this year.
The England international told FourFourTwo that he had spoken to Jürgen Klopp about leaving on loan this campaign, saying: “I spoke to him at the beginning of the season [about going on loan] and he just said ‘no’.”
During a time when hot prospects are forcing moves away in search of first team football, Bobby Duncan the latest infamous case, it is encouraging that Brewster is comfortable with, even encouraged by Jürgen’s decision, adding, “he doesn’t want me to go on loan, he wants me to stay. So that’s fair enough and it’s good to hear.”
This is surely set to be Rhian Brewster’s breakthrough season. Jürgen didn’t make any first team signings over the summer, a massive show of faith in the players already in the first team squad, a show of faith that delighted the 19 year old striker: “he wants to trust the players that he’s got. That’s great to hear.”
Hopefully Brewster can repay his manager’s faith this season, he is set to start against MK Dons – can he deliver?
