This summer Liverpool have offloaded a parade of fringe players. The Reds need to raise transfer funds and we’ve been having a car boot sale as a result. Harry Wilson was sold to Fulham, he has since said he wishes he was given at least half a season to prove himself.
Harry Wilson joins Fulham
This summer saw a player leave Liverpool after 16 years at the club.
Harry Wilson signed for Fulham in a deal worth around £12m.
The Welsh winger joined the Championship outfit following a series of loans around the top two tiers of English football.
Last term he was a standout performer for Cardiff City, netting seven and assisting 11 for the Bluebirds.
At the weekend he scored on his competitive debut for Fulham, cutting inside before rifling home into the bottom corner.
Harry Wilson on Liverpool regret
Speaking exclusively to Goal, Harry Wilson emphasised he has no bitterness towards Liverpool but he wishes he was given more of a chance to prove himself.
The wide man believes his performances for Derby County in the 2019/20 season warranted a shot at Anfield:
“I go back to that Derby season. When I came back, I had maybe 50 games under my belt at a good level. That was the time for me.
“And looking back, yeah, I am a bit gutted that I wasn’t given maybe half a season at least to prove I deserved to be part of that group.”
Despite his disappointment he was realistic about his situation given the world class ability of the front three:
“I know the quality of that Liverpool squad, and I know I wasn’t going to go and play every week like I wanted to.
“The front three rarely miss a game, and their numbers are scary. I was never going to get in ahead of them.”
What RTK has to say
Wrong place, wrong time.
If Harry Wilson had come through the academy ranks just a few years earlier then he may well have made it at Liverpool.
Unfortunately for him he matured just as the Reds had assembled the club’s most frightening attack in decades.
We’ll be following his development closely and cheering him on for Fulham, he’s a quality player and he’ll prove that this season.
