Liverpool’s academy is full of talent and so is the first team. Having one of the strongest front threes in world football makes it difficult for youngsters to break into the side, instead they have to head out on temporary moves to get first team football. Liverpool have confirmed that Liam Millar has completed his Charlton Athletic loan move.

What RTK has to say
Millar joining Charlton on loan is a good move for all involved.
He needs first team football and he wasn’t going to get it at Anfield.
He’ll be given valuable minutes a tough division, it could be the making of the boy.
Hopefully he showcases himself and he earns himself a permanent move somewhere he can kickstart his career.
