Liverpool stars react as Paul Glatzel sends message to supporters

Paul Glatzel was back on the scoresheet for Liverpool for the first time in over a year as the under-23 team recorded an important 4-2 victory against West Ham at Rush Green FC.

It has been a tough 18 months for Glatzel to get himself back to full fitness after the teenager suffered a cruciate ligament injury in 2019 which has kept him out for the best part of a year.

The 19-year-old striker came off the bench to score the final goal of the match as Barry Lewtas’ impressive young side secured their fifth league win of the season to move within one point of top-spot of Premier League 2.

Following the victory, Glatzel sent a message to supporters expressing his emotions following his long-awaited return back amongst the goals.

His Instagram post was met with an outpour of messages from fans and teammates alike including former Liverpool star Bobby Duncan, who is now at Derby County.

Other Reds stars such as Jake Cain, Leighton Clarkson and Layton Stewart also responded to Glatzel’s social media message.
