International break

The Reds have two weeks off.

The Euro U21s group stage games will take place along with senior World Cup qualifiers.

The break comes at a time when the Reds are looking to build back some momentum after a disastrous run of form in the league.

Some jaded and exhausted players will have some vital time to rest during the fortnight which could prove vital to the final stretch of the season.

Jürgen Klopp to assess academy stars

A number of senior players have been called into action by their country.

This will leave first team training rather sparse.

According to The Athletic, Jürgen Klopp is likely to use the opportunity to take a look at some academy stars.

The boss is expected to call up some of the most promising players from the U18s and U23s.

Mateusz Musiałowski is among those expected to be called up for first team training.

The 17-year-old Polish forward, likened by many to Lionel Messi due to his dribbling ability and fierce shooting power, has been impressing in recent weeks. The teenager recently went viral for a stunning solo goal against Newcastle United.

What RTK has to say

Jürgen Klopp taking a look at the academy youngsters in the coming weeks is exciting news.

The likes of Mateusz Musialowski are sure to have a bright future at the club.

Should the Polish forward impress the boss then he could earn himself a sub appearance or two towards the end of the season if there’s nothing to play for in the league.
